SMC Pneumatics has released the CHD hydraulic cylinder range, with built-in magnets for easy installation of an autoswitch. The cylinders also offer a range of bore sizes, stroke lengths and operating pressures.
Depending on the model selected, bore sizes range from 32mm up to 100mm with stroke lengths of between 25mm and 1000mm and nominal pressure of either 10MPa or 16MPa.
They are able to operate in ambient and fluid temperatures from -10°C to 60°C. They offer six different options for port and cushion valve positioning.
Piston speeds of 8mm/s-300mm/s are possible with minimum operating pressures of 0.25MPa or 0.15MPa depending on the position of the piston. They have a maximum allowable pressure of 12MPa or 20MPa depending on the model used.
Tie-rod, compact and dual-rod cylinder designs are available. Many existing cylinders in the SMC hydraulic range are fitted with auto switches as standard, enabling accurate and cost-effective sensing of stroke position.
Cushioning is included as standard.
