Introducing a new series of pancake cylinders

05 June 2019

Festo has announced the availability and support for the new DPC family of inch series compact ‘pancake’ cylinders – high-force short-stroke cylinders designed for tight spaces, available in two models. The DPCA cylinder body is machined from high-quality aluminum, and is clear anodized for corrosion resistance. For added longevity and strength, the DPCA features a hard chrome plated stainless steel piston rod and a non-metallic composite rod bushing.

The model DPCB features a self-lubricating composite body that offers long-service life and trouble-free operation. DPCB performance enhancing features include clear anodized aluminum alloy heads for corrosion resistance, stainless steel tie bolts, chrome plated stainless steel piston rod, and a Duralon® rod bearing for reduced wear.

Both DPC A and B models feature a choice of eight bore sizes and variable stroke lengths up to four inches. Both models are pre-lubricated with Magnalube-G® PTFE grease, an extended-service-life lubricant.
