Square Rod
Bimba’s new Non-Rotating Original Line stainless steel body air cylinder design consists of a unique square piston rod with rounded corners. The square rod prevents rotation better than other rod configurations, and the rounded corners provide longer seal life than conventional hexagon rods. The unusual geometry of the square rod also provides superior rotation control

Key Features/Benefits

  • All bore sizes have a rotational control of less than or equal to + 3 degrees
  • Bore sizes for the non-rotating cylinders are 9/16”, ¾”, 1- 1/16”, 1 ½”, 2”, 2 ½”
  • Available in Double Acting and Reverse Acting models
  • Dimensionally interchangeable with the standard Original Line stainless steel cylinder
  • High strength aluminum alloy rod guide
  • Urethane-based rod seal
  • 250 PSI maximum pressure rating
  • Buna N “U” cup piston seal

Flat-1® Cylinder
For applications that have severe space constraints, Bimba’s round, square, non-rotating Flat Line cylinders provide the perfect solution. These compact and repairable cylinders offer unequaled design, versatility and reliable performance.

Key Features/Benefits

  • Longer piston seal life
  • Precision machined, anodized aluminum alloy heads
  • Oil impregnated bronze rod bushing is standard in all models
  • 304 stainless steel cylinder body with a mirror finish I.D.
  • Stainless steel fights corrosion and scoring from dirt particles
  • Ground and polished 303 stainless steel piston rod
  • High strength piston to rod connection

Original Line Rod Lock
The Line Rod Lock, which is typically a clamped unit, holds the piston rod in position when air pressure is not present.

The cylinder has dowel pins that ride in the cam groove. When air pressure is present, piston actuates and dowel pins follow cam to open position, allowing piston rod to travel freely through clamp. In the absence of pressure, the spring actuates the piston and dowels follow to closed position, activating the rod clamp

Key Features/Benefits

  • Bore sizes are 3/4", 1-1/16", 1-1/2 ", and 2"
