ASCO Numatics Introduces Repairable Round Line Cylinders Featuring Comprehensive Mounting and Threading Options

Novi, Michigan, U.S.A. – ASCO Numatics has introduced the Numatics 488 Series Repairable Round Line Cylinders that come with magnets and bumpers as standard features. The 488 Series also is available with optional adjustable cushions, plus has more mounting and thread-type options than competitive products in its class.

"Numatics' new repairable cylinders offer more mounting styles, port thread types, and rod end configurations than any other product on the market," said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing - Americas, ASCO Numatics. "This wide range of options will provide design engineers and maintenance technicians with the flexibility to create a perfect fit out of the box for their application."

Numatics 488 Series Repairable Round Line Cylinders are available in metric sizes, making them highly desirable for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). With construction that is more robust than nonrepairable cylinders, the 488 Series is more durable and reliable to accommodate the high cycle rates found in packaging and automotive applications.

The 488 Series pneumatic cylinders are designed with a flush round profile tube and encapsulated cushions for a cleaner, more hygienic and aesthetic look. Their smooth surfaces are resistant to corrosion buildup and create more attractive OEM equipment.

Other 488 Series features include:

"Numatics' 488 Series Repairable Round Line Cylinders are more compact, making them easier to install and repair," said Kemple. "Their mounting and threading flexibility means OEMs can rapidly change machine designs. And their interchangeability with competitive products makes them well suited for MRO replacement," he said.

The 488 Series cylinders are ideal for packaging equipment such as sorting conveyors, pusher stations, case packing, bottle-forming machines, and palletizing equipment. General automation and automotive applications include material handling equipment, component conveyors, clamping for frame weld processing, and suspension systems.
