ASCO’s New Compact Stopper Cylinders

ASCO Numatics has introduced a range of pneumatic stopper cylinders designed for light and medium work holding and conveyor applications in the packaging, logistics and automotive industries. The CSC Series has been specially designed to resist the forces associated with radial loads which can cause seal leakage and, in extreme cases, even bent shafts.

The compact CSC Series is available with trunnion or roller type rod end with integrated anti rotation device. Available as 20, 32, 50 & 80 mm bore sizes and with strokes of 15, 20, 30 and 40 mm, the cylinder features self lubricating side bearings and has an operating pressure range of 1.5 to 10 bar and a temperature range of -20°C to +70°C. The mountings are compatible with ISO 21287/15552 and options include ATEX approval for gas and dust zone 1-21, and front plate fixing.

The compact and rugged design features an oversized piston rod and bearing diameter which maximises the effective bearing area for impact resistance. There are also T slot grooves on three sides for magnetic position detectors and in the event of pressure failure, the piston rod spring return stops the load and ensures safety of the installation.

The units are designed to stop objects at various points of a conveyor for machining or processing. They are ideal for applications such as assembly belts, high-bay racking in automatic warehouses and interlinked production plants.

The CSC Series is part of a much wider range of products for industrial automation (pneumatic components) as well as fluid control components (solenoid and pressure operated valves).

Pneumatic products include linear, rotatable and slide actuators, proportional valves, spool valves, fieldbus systems, micro-pneumatics, air service equipment such as filters and filter regulators, as well as turnkey systems and cabinets.

Whether you need a simple pneumatic cylinder, a sophisticated proportional valve, actuator or a fieldbus system, ASCO Numatics has the technology and the expertise to meet your automation needs.
