Here at Air Accessories our core business is fluid power, initially as Pneumatic specialists we have been a Bosch Rexroth & Aventics, Sales Partner since the range was first introduced to the UK. We have an extensive technical library and can often dig out long forgotten details of obsolete parts and even suggest an up to date alternative. It’s all part of the service we offer.
One of our key strengths is that we are true Fluid Power engineers. We have a fully-equipped machine shop to include: CNC milling and turning in addition to conventional equipment, enabling us to manufacture special 'one-off' parts to a drawing or sample. We regularly refurbish rollers and shafts and make up special parts for machinery in the food, drink, quarrying and dairy industries. We offer a refurbishment service for most types of pneumatic equipment, from pneumatic valves and cylinders (including rodless cylinders) to air tools and gripper units. We also offer a pneumatic cylinder repair and a hydraulic cylinder repair programme.
More recently we have concentrated our efforts on offering total fluid power supply and service. We have made significant investments into the Hydraulic field of expertise acquiring two Hydraulic companies over the last few years, J. T. Sawyer and Carter Controls. We have time served Hydraulic Specialist Engineers and the relevent machinery to make and refurbish Hydraulic Cylinders. As with our Pneumatic Cylinder capabilities, we can now manufacture Hydraulic Cylinders to a Standard, a Pattern, A Drawing or as a Commission whereby we would undertake the design. All cylinders are hydraulically tested here on site in Sheffield.
This is further complimented by our Bosch Rexroth Sales Partner status and being able to offer the full range of Hydraulic products with competitive pricing and service. Within the Bosch Rexroth programme is a facility to cross reference other Hydraulic Manufacturers products and convert them to Bosch Rexroth products. This is very useful for Hydraulic Filter Elements and Hydraulic Valves.
We further compliment our products and services offering by undertaking specialist projects. This can be anything from a Pneumatic control panel (including Electro / Pneumatic) to special purpose machinery. We work closely with many Blue Chip organisations to develop innovative products and equipment often to give cost savings, greater flexibility or for intrinsically safe operations.
We pride ourselves on the ability to design, build and implement turnkey projects. Using our in-house design facilities and our knowledge & experience, we can produce complete operating systems from a simple valve / cylinder configuration to a fully integrated workstation.
Many of these systems utilise both pneumatics and linear products to deliver a fully operational production line or work station. These systems can also have built in ‘failsafe’ programmes to include isolators, cylinder rod locking mechanisms, proximity sensors and two handed safety start mechanisms, ensuring total safety for the operator.
We are Achilles approved suppliers who identify, qualify, evaluate, and monitor suppliers on behalf of major organisations worldwide. We build and support buyer-supplier communities in many industry sectors, creating unique and powerful global networks. Our services for sustainable procurement help create opportunities for business and reduce risk in the supply chain.
In addition to our fluid power engineers being leading specialists in the fluid power industry, we are also a fully equipped machining centre. Employing time served and apprenticeship trained engineers, we can offer a fast, friendly and competitive engineering sub-contract service for most industrial applications.
