Rodless cylinder

Custom rodless cylinders

Tameson offers two types of custom rodless cylinders. A traditional pneumatic cylinder uses a rod to push or pull the load from the piston, a rodless cylinder moves the load alongside the piston. This gives the main advantages of having the same stroke length in significantly less space. 

The cylinders are made by our german partner to-order and ship within 5 days. Two types are available: the PL series, a classical rodless cylinder and the PLF series, a flanged-top rodless cylinder. The main difference between both series is the way the load is mounted onto the cylinder, please view our datasheets below for more information. The PL series are available with diameters up to 40 mm and the PLF series up to 63 mm.

Use the configurator below to order your custom rodless cylinder.
