Why use inflatable jack?
Under the brand Mustpress®, Musthane designs and manufactures inflatable jacks, air cylinders that can be integrated as a component in machines or equipment. We manufacture them to measure.
These pneumatic jacks perform functions in equipment or machines such as: guiding, pushing, pressing, sealing, centering, lifting, redirecting
Inflatable air jacks are used in many industries because they offer undeniable advantages when the objective is to exert an evenly distributed pressure on an outdoor environment, while keeping the space requirement to a minimum. Pneumatic air bag jack presses goat cheese but also lift oil platforms!
They are in fact a tailor-made solution adapted to the environment and to the use of each machine or equipment. To help you dimension your inflatable jack, click here.
The principle of the inflatable jack is to obtain a force homogeneously distributed on the environment, from a flexible, very resistant envelope in which a gas or a liquid is injected.
They advantageously replace hydraulic and mechanical jacks.
The manufacturing techniques used cold or hot vulcanization, HF welding. The choice of materials are linked to the constraints applied to Mustpress® inflatable jacks:
Pneumatic jacks are available in the following forms :
- Round or Cylindrical
- Specific shape
They can have one, two, or three floors depending on the race requested.
In addition, we can add a rubber heel-piece to solve problems of
- feed position
Mustpress® inflatable air jacks and seals have one or more inflation tubes. They are generally inflated at a pressure less than or equal to 7 bars but we can also manufacture pneumatic jacks inflated up to 400 bars.
Use case of custom made pneumatic jack & inflatable seals
- Pressing wood panels
- Diverting from conveyors
- Ensuring the closing of polyurethane injection molds
- Tightening coils
- Pressing cheeses
- Handling heavy parts
- Gasket for vacuum bag
Technical characteristics of inflatable air jack :
- Material : reinforced fabric coated with polymer or polymer membrane

Advantages of Inflatable jack
- Low space requirement when empty
- Homogeneous thrust
- Resistance to high temperatures
- Large runs (several floors)
- Made to measure manufacturing
- No special maintenance
