Air Engineering to Offer 1.12 Inch Bore Heavy Duty Air CylindersApril 1, 2012
Air Engineering and Supply has announced the manufacture and national distribution of the company's 1.12 inch bore and up to 20 inch standard stroke with longer strokes available upon request.
"A leading manufacturer of this style and size cylinder recently announced that it was discontinuing the product," said a company spokesperson. "Air Engineering and Supply recognized this as an opportunity to continue service to the industry with its own version of this heavy duty air cylinder.
"These are the double acting 18D and 18SD models available in both stud and universal mounts. Both are 1.12 inch bore models and feature nitrile seals rated for 180-degrees F and 150 PSI max. Cylinders are hard-coated anodized aluminum with zinc-plated nuts and lock washers. The cylinders feature chrome plated stainless steel rods with brass pistons and have black oxide finished end covers. Designed with standard bumpers at both ends, the cylinders have low friction U-cup seals with moly lubrication.
"Air Engineering and Supply has offered this style and size cylinder for over 25 years and has a range of customers currently using the product. Among the many applications are all types of automation including articulating arms for tool balancers, ergonomic workstations and basic pneumatic operations."
"By continuing to offer these 1.12 inch bore heavy duty cylinders, we're best serving both the replacement market and new designers with a time-proven product that is very important to many customers," said Dave Maurer, Air Engineering and Supply Sales Manager.
