Festo’s DSBC family of ISO 15552 standard pneumatic cylinders features the company’s patented PPS self-adjusting cushioning capability. PPS ensures that cushioning into the end position is dynamic, but gentle, and requires no manual intervention. PPS eliminates the need to manually adjust needle valves, a time consuming task when installing air cylinders. This self-adjusting ability ensures optimum cushioning performance at all times—even for changes in parameters such as load, speed, pressure and friction—thus reducing wear and vibration and extending life.
The DSBC has the reliability and sturdiness of the popular ISO 15552 standard cylinders used in many industries. Sizes range from 1.25 to 5 in. (32 to 125 mm). A wide range of configuration options are available, including an integrated rod clamp or mechanical end lock for safety; additional corrosion resistance for demanding environments, such as wash-down applications; chemical-resistant seals; scrapers optimized for high-dust areas, such as packaging; and designs for low friction or slow speeds. The company’s online product configurator makes ordering quick and efficient.
