Made for drop prevention, workplace clamping, and emergency stopping, these cylinders use a locking mechanism and a new type of air cushion. They come in 32, 40, 50 and 63 mm bore sizes. The system is compact, with a simple design on the lock unit with no extra projections, and the air cushion eliminates the need for a cushion ring, making it even smaller. It features a simple, lightweight one-way lock mechanism for installation in tight spaces.
