Mill Type Hydraulic Cylinder provides 2 million load cycles.

Press Release Summary:

Suitable for both 160 and 250 bar pressure ranges, Model CDL2 features 4 different mounting types and stroke lengths up to 3,000 mm. Unit can be used across broad spectrum of applications, including wood and paper production, general machinery construction, recycling, and material handling. Since cylinder is designed for 2 million load cycles, design engineers can accurately calculate cylinder’s lifecycle for each application and determine price/performance ratio with transparency.

New Rexroth CDL2 Cylinder is Designed for 2 million Load Cycles

The new CDL2 mill type cylinder is designed and tested for 2 million load cycles

Machine manufacturers are increasingly demanding cost-optimized hydraulic cylinders with a high degree of reliability. Bosch Rexroth meets these demands with the new CDL2 mill type cylinder for both pressure ranges of 160 and 250 bars. They are designed for two million load cycles. Design engineers can thus accurately calculate the cylinder’s lifecycle for each application and determine the price/performance ratio with transparency.

Reliable components for main and auxiliary functions determine machine dependability and availability. Until now, design engineers had to choose hydraulic cylinders based on the required pressure range without any accurate lifecycle data. Bosch Rexroth now gives design engineers a secure database: the CDL2 cylinder has been reliably designed and tested for 2 million load cycles.

It features four different mounting types and stroke lengths up to 3,000 mm. It can be used across a broad spectrum of applications, including wood and paper production, general machinery construction, recycling and material handling. Bosch Rexroth has also simplified the entire engineering and ordering process. Design engineers can select all versions online using Rexroth's interactive catalog system. It contains 2D/3D CAD data, order codes and installation drawings for the selected cylinder, and all accessories. All options are configurable by default and enable short delivery times. The new CDL2 mill type cylinder supplements the broad Rexroth portfolio of hydraulic components and complete hydraulic systems used around the world.
