Our design and development team have been working on improving our CyLock range of locking cylinders.
These cylinders have been used extensively in plastic packaging machines; they lock in the end position by means of an integrated mechanical lock. Whilst the pushing and retraction force is the same as conventional pneumatic cylinders, the holding force is far higher.
CyTec have developed a method of applying preload in the locked position. We can also with the introduction of a built in second piston give increased retraction force.
This opens possibilities for pneumatic locking cylinders to be used in mould tools for clean room applications.
