Festo releases multi-mount compact cylinder for light manufacturing
May 5, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
The new DPDM Multimount compact cylinder is Festo’s smallest and lightest in its class.
It’s ideal for many applications compact cylinders perform, such as stopping or stabilizing small work pieces or work platforms in light manufacturing.
The cylinder offers a variety of ways to be fastened in place directly. It can be mounted at the front or rear, vertically or horizontally, hence the “multi-mount” in its name.
All mounting interfaces of the DPDM are compatible with those of the DMM, so it can be considered as a replacement for the latter in some applications.
The DPDM is available in single- and double-acting versions, with or without protection against rotation, in a variety of common diameters and stroke lengths.
There is a variant with heat protection up to 120 degrees Celsius, and a magnetic piston option for position sensing.
The DPDM also can be ordered with a through piston rod for connections at both end of the cylinder, or with a hollow piston rod, which can be used to carry vacuum or compressed air.
