Cylinders with clamping unit

Cylinder with clamping unit

These are piston rod cylinders with an additional clamping unit for clamping the piston rod. The clamping is frictional when the operating pressure falls below a minimum level and – depending on the type – can be backlashed or backlash-free. Cylinders with clamping cartridge are used for static holding. For dynamic braking and use in safety-relevant controllers, a clamping unit with corresponding test certificate is required.
