THE latest addition to the Univer cylinder range is the compact oval cylinder with standard adjustable pneumatic cushioning.
Univer's oval cylinders are produced using a low profile aluminium extrusion which allows the cylinder to be used in confined spaces.
The cylinders are available with a wide range of mounting options (front and rear, side, lower), and their shape allows the assembly of several coupled cylinders with small overall dimensions.
The oval piston is manufactured from a high technology technopolymer material to ensure a long and trouble free life and the oval section of the piston has been developed so as to avoid rotation, allowing the rod to withstand torque.
All cylinders in the range also incorporate a patented 'collapsible' cushion device that reduces end-cap dimensions to a minimum.
The oval cylinder can withstand ambient temperatures of -20°C to 80°C and can operate at a maximum speed of up to 1m/s with lubricated or non-lubricated air.
When position sensors are required, magnetic limit switches are available that neatly slide into the barrel extrusion; no mounting brackets are required.
