A new DSBC range of square-bodied ISO cylinders, featuring PPS self-adjusting air cushioning as standard, has been launched by Festo.

The company says the DSBC range offers machine builders the benefits of adjustable air cushioning but without the difficulties associated with set-up. The DSBC with PPS cushioning system automatically compensates and adjusts for the set speed and mass that the cylinder is moving in a safe and controlled manner, claims the company.

The cylinder is available in six diameters up to 100mm and with strokes of up to two-metre lengths. The range of application-optimised seal variants include hard scraper rings for dust protection, dry running seals suitable for washdown environments, seals for temperatures down to -40°C or heat resistance up to 150°C and acid resistant seals.

Optional accessories include a square piston rod for protection against rotation.
