Description

Hydro-cylinders are used for clamping of workpieces or for hydraulically-operated motion and operation tasks. With the cylinder tube design, strokes of up to 1,200 mm can be realised (cylinder tube design of hydro-cylinder B1.2811 ).

Besides the two hydro-cylinder series, the hydraulic block cylinder series B1.590 is offered, that can be manifold mounted at the housing (manifold mounting of hydraulic block cylinder B1.590).

Hydro-cylinder with adjustable stroke end cushioning

The stroke end cushioning throttles the flow rate in the last millimetres of the stroke (e.g. 8 mm) and reduces the piston speed and the energy in the end positions. The stroke end cushioning is adjustable and the cushioning effect can be adapted to the corresponding application. In addition, both end positions can be separately adjusted.

Stroke end control with high-pressure resistant proximity sensors

For every end position, the cylinder housing is given a hole with interior thread, into which a high-pressure resistant, interactive proximity sensor can be screwed. The sensor checks the piston of the cylinder directly. It is sealed on the outside with an O-ring. By means of the switching distance between the sensor and the piston, the switching point can be adjusted to 5 mm before the end position. Only the end positions of the hydro-cylinder are checked by the high-pressure resistant sensors.

Technology

Adjustable stroke end cushioning

If hydraulic cylinders are operated at high speeds, when the piston hits the stroke end position unimpeded, a high amount of energy is released and must be absorbed by the cylinder housing and the threaded bushing. This can lead to a reduction in the cylinder's working life. This can also result in undesirable effects on the actual function, caused by shaking and noise coming from the knocking. Reducing the speed helps, of course. If this is not possible, however, it is recommended to use a cylinder with integrated hydraulic stroke end cushioning.
In the last few millimetres of the stroke (e.g. 8 mm), this stroke end cushioning forces the hydraulic fluid through a hole or similar. By means of this orifice effect, the flow rate is throttled and the piston speed and the energy in the end positions is thus reduced.
The stroke end cushioning of the hydro-cylinders is adjustable and the cushioning effect can be adapted to the corresponding application. In addition, both end positions can be separately adjusted.

Stroke end control with high-pressure resistant proximity sensors

 For every end position, the cylinder housing is given a hole with interior thread, into which a high-pressure resistant, interactive proximity sensor can be screwed. The sensor checks the piston of the cylinder directly. It is sealed on the outside with an O-ring. 
By means of the switching distance between the sensor and the piston, the switching point can be adjusted to 5 mm before the end position.
Only the end positions of the hydraulic cylinder are checked by the high-pressure resistant sensors. The maximum operating temperature of the sensors is 80°C or 120°C.

Maximum piston speed

The maximum piston speed for all series is 0.5 m/s.
