Rodless cylinders

Article-Rodless cylinders

RTC rodless cylinders are equipped with oval-shaped—rather than round—pistons, which are said to provide excellent load and moment-generating capacity. The slide and piston are constructed as a single unit, letting the slide move maximum loads even on smaller cylinders. Four versions are available: RTC-BV for universal use; RTC-CG for compact dimensions; RTC-EG for cost-effectiveness; and RTC-HD for heavy loads. The cylinders come in dias from 0.625 to 3 in. and a maximum stroke length of 32.5 ft.
