Parker Hannifin released its redesigned P1M Swing Clamp Cylinder. This new design features gear-grade bushing made from stress-proof steel, which Parker claims allows for more torque and improved resistance to added/unintended stresses. The design also features internal transfer tubes, which allow for pneumatic ports to be placed on the same side of the cylinder in cases where space is a concern.
The clamp comes in 32-, 40-, and 50-mm bore sizes with stroke lengths of 10, 20, and 50 mm based on individual bore size. The adjustable arm can be set with clockwise or counterclockwise rotation and has reverse arm rotation. The clamp features different forces for the different bore lengths, ranging from 27 lb for the 32 mm bore unit at 29 psi to 371 lb for the 50 mm at 145 psi.
