Magnifying force isn’t just for superheroes

03 March 2023

Satron’s PISTOR power cylinders utilise a three-bar feed pneumatic supply to precisely position a cylinder exerting 1200N and a moment of force of 360Nm for a cylinder with a 300mm throw. Double the input supply to six-bar and the output forces also double to exert 2,400N and a moment of force of 720Nm.

These precision cylinders use an internal feedback system to provide an accuracy of two percent or better and offer a sensitivity of 0.3 percent. For example, applying a control signal pressure of 0.6 bar will extend the 150mm cylinder, half of its travel to 75mm, whereas the full one-bar will fully extend to 150mm, etc.
Because the PISTOR cylinders are completely pneumatic-controlled and operated, there is no electricity is involved, making them ideal for explosion-hazardous environments where ATEX is required.
PISTOR is offered in two sizes, either 150 or 300mm maximum stroke. Its robust construction uses an aluminium epoxy powder-coated body and a stainless steel piston rod to provide a reliable long service life. 

Product advantages
• Precise – Accurate to two percent or better, with a sensitivity of 0.3 percent
• Simple installation – Pneumatic supply and signal, no electricity
• No electricity, so ideal for where ATEX is required
• Robust aluminium epoxy powder-coated body and a stainless steel piston rod
