Accurate Coupling of Cylinders to Machinery

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT:

ACCURATE COUPLING OF CYLINDERS TO MACHINERY

 

Cylinder mount accessories allow for accurate coupling of cylinders to machines, ensuring proper function while increasing the life of the cylinder and mount. Custom or fabricated mounting accessories not manufactured by Bimba¦TRD can induce cylinder fatigue and failure that is costly to production time and expenses. Proper trunnion blocks, used in conjunction with compatible trunnion mounts, provide clean, complimentary designs and easy maintenance.

By design, composite bearings provide a shoulder to distance the trunnion block and cylinder so that minimum wear (galling) will occur during operation. Aluminum and stainless steel blocks incorporate a high-load composite bearing, which offers higher strength and operating life than bronze bearings. In harsh applications where bearing wear is seen, replacement is as easy as removing the worn bearing and pressing in the new one.


Potential Applications:

  • Packaging feedline and conveyor lift/diverter cylinders
  • Lumber mill processing
  • Palletizers and product handling
  • Metal stamping and jewelry manufacturing
