Free floating joint for linear actuators

07 September, 2022

The Floatmatic is a floating joint/ alignment rod for pneumatic cylinders and other linear actuators invented by Danish engineer, Simon Russek.


The Floatmatic is a coupling to be mounted directly on the cylinder, which then enables it to eliminate all side loads that may occur in the cylinder from the actuated part.

Main driver

Side loads, which are one of the top reasons for cylinder breakdown, were the main driver for developing the floating joint. The Floatmatic consists of a machined housing, which houses a threaded bolt sliding on two low friction discs. This enables the bolt to slide inside the housing, thereby compensating for a misalignment between the cylinder and its attached part.

The special design of the Floatmatic offers a large degree of freedom to the cylinder. It comes in sizes from M4 to M27 to fit all standard cylinders and is sold directly through Floatmatic, which is owned by the inventor.
