Products for functions in machine tools
Exhaust module

Exhaust module

Targeted exhausting at both ends of a cylinder pressurised by piloted check valves

  • No idle time
  • No undesired or uncontrolled cylinder motion
Counterbalancing cylinder

Counterbalancing cylinder

  • Use with vertical axes for the compensation of weight forces
  • Permits higher speeds and rates of acceleration
  • Optionally with safety brake
Modular system

Modular system for modified cylinders for applications with cooling lubricants and chips

Select the optimum combination of sturdy scrapers and chemical-resistant seals from our modular seal system for harsh environments in machine tools.


Buffer cushioning

Buffer cushioning for higher speeds and/or loads

  • Highest drive speed in the middle of the stroke
  • Gentle cushioning in the end position
  • Higher maximum speed and reduced travel time

Air gap sensor SOPA

Air gap sensor SOPA with higher air-jet flow rate and analogue value
Accurately senses, within the micron range, whether or not the workpiece is lying flat before clamping and the tool is precisely aligned with the spindle.

Detect two different distance values with a single measuring module. That’s the solution for 2-stage workpiece machining with different surface finishes.

Distance and contact monitoring for harsh environments
