1 Cylinder Body: Type 304 Stainless Steel tubing with strict specifications and tolerances to ensure longer cylinder life.

2 Piston Rod Assembly: Ground & Polished Type 303 Stainless Steel piston rod with special accuracy specifications is threaded, anaerobically sealed and machine staked into the piston for triple protection.

3 Buna-N U-Cup Rod & Piston Seals: U-Cup seals provide low breakaway friction and extended seal life. Standard Buna-N seals are recommended for operating temperatures of -20° F to 200° F. Fluoroelastomer seals are available for higher temperature applications.

4 Prelubricated: All cylinders are factory lubricated with a special high endurance oil.

5 Magnetic Piston Band: All units (except 5/16 bore) are provided with a magnetic piston band as standard for applications requiring position sensing. Hall Effect and Reed Switches are available as accessory items. (See page 4)

6 End Caps: High strength aluminum alloy

7 Guide Shafts: Large diameter special accuracy Hard ChromePlated Type 303 Stainless Steel shafts act as the inner race for the precision sleeve bearings and provide a rigid attachment for the tooling mounting bar.

8 Tooling Mounting Bar: Sturdy aluminum alloy, machined top and front surfaces with standard tapped mounting holes. Special configurations available upon request.

9 Floating Coupler: Prevents cylinder rod binding ensuring longer life.

10 Shaft Bearings: High performance Duralon® sleeve bearings have a composite inner liner of low-friction, self-lubricating fibers with a reinforced filamentwound Fiberglass and epoxy shell to provide smooth guided motion with high load carrying capabilities.

11 Mounting Holes: Standard through mounting holes designed for standard cap screws. Alternative threaded mounting holes available as a standard option. (See Option "T" page 3)

12 Pre-Tested: The quality of each assembly is assured by testing each unit for leakage and binding resistance prior to shipment.
