Aventics has recently launched a new double-acting RTC rodless cylinder range for high-performance applications that require a compact machine design. As with other double-acting rodless cylinders from Aventics, at the heart of the RTC-SB (slide bearing) cylinder is its oval piston design. This design element enables the cylinder to offer high-load capacities in relation to its compact construction, creating even more compact machine designs.
This innovative cylinder range is equipped with a lubrication-free slide bearing and wear-free magnetically attached exterior strip, scraper and sealing strip that make the cylinder resistant to water, chemicals and dirt, with zero maintenance requirements.
In addition, thanks to Aventics’ form-fit connection technology with standardised mechanical interfaces, machine design and assembly times are drastically reduced as no re-adjustments are necessary.
The new RTC-SB rodless cylinder is designed for a maximum speed of 6.5 m/s with a maximum stroke of 6 600 mm. Its adjustable pneumatic cushioning extends its operating service life and ensures precise and gentle operation.
The RTC cylinder range completes the Aventics range of double-acting rodless cylinders. The new RTC-SB version with a piston diameter ranging from 25 to 40 mm closes the previous gap between the basic version (RTC-BV) and the versions designed for higher loads, the RTC-CG (compact guide) and RTC-HD (heavy duty).
The Aventics range of pneumatic cylinders is available exclusively in sub-Saharan Africa through Tectra Automation, a Hytec Group Company.
