WRF Frame Clamp Cylinders

WRF Frame Clamp Cylinders

The WRF100 with its high clamping force makes it suitable for a broad range of applications. Standardized T-type and S-type arms allows the selection to meet certain specifications or applications. Also, has an optional spatter protective cover with easy assembly even after the cylinder is installed.


Pneumatic Cylinders

CQ2-XC91

CQ2 Standard Cylinders

The CQ2 weld spatter resistant compact cylinder is an option of the world's best selling pneumatic cylinder and can be supported globally. The CQ2-XC88/XC89/XC91 is available in 6 bore sizes from 32mm to 100mm. It comes standard with male or female piston rod threads. For mounting flexibility, it is possible to mount auto switches on any of the 4 surfaces.


CA2-XC91

CA2 Tie Rod Cylinders

The weld spatter resistant CA2-XC88/XC89/XC91 series is an option of the standard, light weight tie rod air cylinder.  Fine end of stroke cushioning adjustment is now possible due to the increase in the air cushion adjustment range.  The CA2 can be ordered with rod end or rear pivot brackets.  A variety of auto switches are available for mounting, including compact switches and magnetic field resistant switches.  The CA2 is available in 40, 50, 63, 80 and 100 bores sizes, and is RoHS compliant.


MB-XC91

MB Tie Rod Cylinders

The weld spatter resistant MB-XC88/XC89/XC91 series is a light weight, medium duty tie rod cylinder. Available bore sizes range from 32mm to 100mm. The standard air cushion utilizes a floating cushion seal to eliminate piston rod bouncing.


MGP-XC91

MGP Guided Cylinders

The MGP-XC88/XC89/XC91 is designed for high side load applications found in material handling, lifting and stopping in welding environments. The cylinder utilizes an ultra-compact design by incorporating the cylinder body as part of the guide body.


MK2T-XC91

MK2T Rotary Clamp Cylinders

Combining weld spatter resistance, compact cylinder size and rotational capability, the MK2T-XC88/XC89/XC91 cylinder is designed for heavy duty clamping applications, with an available integrated arm that swings out of the way when the cylinder is extended. 90deg. clockwise or counter clockwise rotation is available, and clamping arms with adjustment screw are standard options.


CKG-XC91

CKG1 Clamp Cylinders

The CKG1-XC88/XC89/XC91 series is a clamp cylinder available in two styles of clevis widths (16.5mm, 19.5mm). It is a non-lube, compact, lightweight cylinder with a built-in speed controller. The CKG1 is available in 3 bore sizes with stroke lengths up to 150mm. Options include easy speed adjustments, rod attachments and auto-switch capabilities.
