- Simple Inlet Design
- Constant Hydraulic Flow
- 80 Bar Max. Pressure
- Up to 8,000 RPM
- Standard Built in Trapping
- Optional Trip Rod and Thru Port
The inlet assembly, sometimes called the distributer, can be designed in two ways. It can have a fixed position in relation to the piston housing, or it can float with the stroke of the cylinder (a "reciprocating" inlet).
- Third port for air or coolant thru (view schematic)
- Solid Trip Rod, which will sense cylinder position. Adjustable proximity switch holders (view schematic)
- Thru hole trip rod for air or coolant thru. Will sense cylinder position utilizing adjustable proximity switch holders (view schematic)
This safety feature allows the cylinder to remain pressurized, and the chuck to maintain clamping pressure, in the event of a power loss.
The seal keep compressed air or hydraulic fluid captured within the cylinder. The seals are designed to allow movement and support between internal components.
Cylinders can be designed with a single piston, two pistons connected in one housing (tandem), an open center piston (thru-hole), or with two different size pistons, in seperate housings, which can be energized independently (duplex).
- Fast Acting - Allows for increased volume flow through the cylinder, decreasing overall stroke cycle time. Cycles of less than one second are possible on two inches of stroke.
- Metric Designs - Mounting threads and male pilot, specified in metric, to allow for quick and easy replacement of original equipment cylinders on imported machine tools.
- Variable Pressure Feature - This feature allows clamping forces to be reduced from high to low (Hi-Lo or Differential) during the cutting cycle. A pilot port in the inlet triggers "on-the-fly" pressure changes transferred to the part through chuck jaw relaxation. The reduction in part distortion allows for better roundness control.
