Stainless-steel bands keep out contaminants while not expanding like elastomer bands, letting them last longer and work better. The steel bands also resist pressure spikes generated during highvelocity cushion impacts. The piston is separated from the load, even when the carrier deflects, further extending the piston seals’ service life. Other features include durable, custom-formulated polyurethane seals, clear anodized aluminium extrusions, adjustable cushions, mounted shocks, double or single-end porting, and drop-in and easyto- locate switches. The cylinder is available in both inch and metric versions.
