FO2, FO3, and FO4 Flat 1(reg) models are double-acting, single-end rod cylinders with stainless-steel bodies that multiply the force output by supplying air to multiple pistons on extension. The cylinders allow the user to double, triple, or quadruple their force. Only one piston is powered on the return stroke, saving air volume and operating costs. The FO2, FO3, and FO4 are available in three bore sizes (2 1/2, 3, and 4 inches), and standard options include fluroelastomer and low-friction seals, Magnalube(reg) G, front- and rear-port positioning, and rod wiper.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
