Original Press Release:

Compact Twin Rod Series Packs Superior Power In Smaller Footprint

Wadsworth, OH - The Actuator Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE:PH) introduces the new P5TT and P5TD Series Twin Rod Cylinders designed for light-duty, non-rotational and bearing-guided linear motion applications. The series completes the product family of compact, high-speed, short-stroke actuators that provide superior power in a smaller footprint.

Designed specifically for use on conveyor equipment (stops/high-speed rejects), packaging machinery (labeling/positioning/centering functions) and assembly systems (light-duty/high-speed pick-and-place/clamping operations), the new twin rod cylinder series provides cost-effective, leading-edge technology to meet a wide range of application requirements.

With a smaller footprint, the P5TT/P5TD Series Twin Rod Cylinders feature dual-cylinder bores to deliver maximum force in a compact, lightweight package; direct mounting of multiple actuators to optimize cost-effectiveness in multi-axis systems; and unique engineering to provide an economical solution for light-duty, non-rotational functions.

Series standard features include internal bumpers for extend stroke along with adjustable retract bumper stop. A unique T-slot allows for a wide range of mounting options including the ability to mount multiple-axis automated systems directly with no transition plate required. The T-slot also permits integration with all Parker IPS structural aluminum products. The complete series is available in single/dual tooling plate versions.

System porting is designed to enable maximum flow rates to each cylinder bore for high flow rates in high-speed applications, along with increased throughput. Side porting is standard with optional rod porting also available on dual tooling plate models. Stroke adjusters in both directions are standard, while optional shock absorbers provide smooth deceleration even under extreme application conditions.

Integrated sensor grooves and a standard magnetic piston provide accurate position sensing while a unique groove offers maximum LED visibility even from extreme angles. For added flexibility, the series' housing/tooling plate orientation is designed for use as gantry or dual tooling plate slide. For significantly increased load capacity, bearings are separated to extreme ends of housing/carriage.

The Parker Hannifin Actuator Division combines pneumatic, electromechanical, hydraulic and structural aluminum technologies to provide world-class automation system solutions across all industries.

With annual sales exceeding $9 billion, Parker Hannifin is the world's leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, providing precision-engineered solutions for a wide variety of commercial, mobile, industrial and aerospace markets. The company employs more than 57,000 people in 43 countries around the world. Parker has increased its annual dividends paid to shareholders for 50 consecutive years, among the top five longest-running dividend-increase records in the S&P 500 index.
