Jul. 13, 2018 – Aventics has upgraded the steel online configurator for NFPA cylinders.
The Aventics NFPA cylinder configurator features a new look and more user-friendly navigation, says the company, while being compatible with more Web browsers and mobile devices. The configuration process is accelerated by a new “fast forward” feature which allows the user to skip steps in the configuration process by automatically selecting default options, explains Aventics. As well, the new version provides users with easy access to technical specifications, list pricing, 2D drawings and 3D models, an immediate unique part number, plus a cylinder datasheet PDF with outline drawing and an overview of the selections/options selected.
Users of the NFPA configurator can choose from different options to design their cylinder: series, bore size, stroke, mounting style, piston rod diameter and material, rod end style, port and cushion options, seal material, piston rod extension, paint, and piston-retaining set screw option. Many configurable cylinders qualify for the Aventics 3 Days Quick Ship program. In addition, the Cadenas CAD option provides more than 100 formats for common CAD systems. Aventics NFPA cylinders come standard in 1 ½” to 14” bore sizes (larger bores available) with up to 22 mounting styles, and feature an extra-long rod bearing for maximum support against side-loads.
