Pneumatic profile cylinders and tie rod cylinders from Festo are standards-based cylinders according to ISO 15552. On the one hand, these double-acting piston rod cylinders have several mounting options for virtually any installation situation and, on the other, they come with self-adjusting pneumatic end-position cushioning. This saves time during commissioning and the cushioning adapts optimally to load and speed changes.
Profile cylinders and tie rod cylinders have identical mounting interfaces and the same technical data, and both have dimensions that conform to the ISO 15552 standard. However, these linear drives differ above all in how the cylinder sensors are mounted: they are securely inserted in the slot on the profile tube, while on cylinders with tie rods the cylinder sensors are attached to a tie rod using a separate mounting kit.
