Cylinder integrates locking mechanism

Cytech says its CyPull device overcomes the problems of movement and the locking of slides and cores in the mould making industry. CyPull has an integrated mechanism that locks automatically (without any additional power being expended) whenever it reaches its final end stroke position.

By employing an internal locking device, CyPull saves on both costs and space requirements. Moreover, because the unit’s holding force in the locking position is several times greater than the cylinders’s hydraulic holding force (up to several hundred tonnes), even high counter forces can be held safely.
