Standard cylinders from Festo are now available with PPS cushioning to deliver several benefits including less shock, noise, cleaning and wear.
Thanks to the PPS cushioning, there is less settling and impact vibration, which is better for the cylinder and the machine. Lack of vibration eliminates any disturbance to the working environment of both workers and machines while also reducing noise.
Standard cylinders with PPS are also self-adjusting, resulting in perfectly set cushioning that allows cylinders to operate more smoothly and longer for better machine uptime and greater throughput. The self-adjusting design also saves time and effort.
Since there are no cushioning screws, dust and dirt traps are eliminated, making for smoother surfaces.
Cylinders with PPS cushioning have a far wider operating range than most standard cylinders, resulting in the need for less sizes and variants for the same performance range.
PPS cushioning prevents setting errors and automatically compensates for changing loads. Additionally, the PPS self-adjusting cushioning simplifies the task of setting multiple cylinders to run in parallel and improves performance.
Compact cylinders ADN-PPS offer up to 300% more end of stroke energy absorption.
ISO cylinders featuring PPS cushioning require much less variety of versions to cover almost every application.
