Multi-position cylinders

When multiple positions are required

Hydraulic cylinders are linear drives that are capable of moving great loads safely and quickly. They will move until the controller tells them to stop or the end position is reached. Regular hydraulic cylinders usually have two defined positions: fully retracted and fully extended. However, some motion sequences require more than that. If there is another fixed position to be approached along the travel path, one of our multi-position cylinders may be the perfect solution.
