TUNKERS, represented in Australia by Romheld , has released the MZ series of pneumatic multipower cylinders for applications where very high thrust is required from normal shop air pressure.
The series has an integrated mechanical intensifier, an antirotate flat cylinder and fully enclosed housing. It delivers eight to 10 times the output thrust of a conventional air cylinder.
It has 6mm of full power stroke and can be supplied in bore sizes from 40mm to 140mm and strokes up to 300mm. An 80mm bore MZ cylinder will produce 28 tonnes of force from an eight-bar inlet pressure.
The series is designed to eliminate the need for hydraulics and to keep equipment size to a minimum. It is suited to applications including punching, clinching, pressing and marking. Options include sensing systems, a locking device, additional guiding and various piston rod end configurations.
