NFPA Member Company Profile: Fabco-Air

Each week we publish a short company profile of an NFPA member as a way for us to highlight the diversity and strength of our industry. Today’s company is Fabco-Air.

Fabco logoFabco-Air has been manufacturing pneumatic products since 1958. Products include pancake cylinders, tie-rod cylinders, multipower cylinders, extruded body and ISO cylinders, rotary actuators, FRL’s, slides and magnetically coupled rodless cylinders. In fact, the Original PANCAKE® Cylinder was designed in 1958 by Alfred W. Schmidt, the founder of Fabco-Air, Inc. This particular type of pneumatic actuator was designed to satisfy the need for short stroke, low profile, compact air cylinders that would fit in very tight spaces. Fabco-Air serves a variety of end-use industries such as automation assembly equipment; animatronics, and rail. Fabco-Air recently rejoined NFPA and participate in NFPA’s State of the Fluid Power survey plus have explored other NFPA Market Information Reports. We are delighted to have Fabco-Air back as a member.
