Original Press Release:
Series CCA Advanced Locking Cylinders® with Integral AMLOK® Rod Clamp
Advanced Machine & Engineering Co. (AME) Rockford, IL announces the new Series CCA Advanced Locking Cylinders® with Integral AMLOK® Rod Clamp. The AMLOK Power Off Rod Clamp has been developed to control over travel, drifting, bouncing and reverse traveling.
The patented oversized intensifier guarantees a long service life, even under severe operating conditions. The high locking force will hold the rod in any mid-stroke position. Clamping is accomplished through spring force so any drifting caused by a lack of air pressure is not possible. The AMLOK Rod Clamp is offered as an integral unit with the Advanced Cylinder Series CCA, or can be added as a separate unit to an NFPA-MF1 style cylinder.
Since the locking of the AMLOK Rod Clamp is accomplished mechanically by a spring and unlocked by air pressure, loss of air pressure will cause the unit to lock. The holding force depends upon the rod and piston diameter. The available holding forces can be multiplied by adding additional AMLOK clamps to the same rod or by exchanging springs and increasing the release pressure.
AMLOK Rod Clamps are designed for locking reciprocating motions only. Special AMLOK Clamps are available upon request.
