UNIVER Safety Locking units are designed to mechanically lock pneumatic cylinders in position in the event of air failure, providing a basic level of safety within the work environment.
Locking units also allow for positional control at any point along a cylinders stroke by mechanically holding the piston carriage in a fixed position.
The patented locking mechanism operates when a sharp pressure drop is sensed. It can also be controlled by a remote signal.
To ensure safety, instant braking will occur in either direction, even when the cylinder is operating at maximum speed and fully loaded.
Univer locking units can be mounted onto any standard VDMA, ISO or Unitop cylinder from 16mm to 125mm bore. A rod extension is required to accommodate the locking unit.
The locking units can also be used independently on rod sizes 12, 16, 20, 25 and 32mm.
