over 30 years ago as the first rodless cylinder, the Tolomatic
cable cylinder provides reliable linear motion with space and cost-savings
features. Its simple yet efficient design solves a wide variety
of application requirements. Unlike rod cylinders, the cable cylinder`s
stroke is contained within the cylinder itself and that can be
a big advantage when space limitations are a consideration. The
cable cylinder allows equal force to be applied in both directions.
Cables (fastened to both ends of the piston) pass through gland
seals at the ends of the cylinder tube, go around pulleys and are
then joined by a load bracket or clevis. The cables can be cut
different lengths, threaded through a machine or wrapped around
a drum to fill a wide variety of rotary and/or linear motion requirements.
Tolomatic was first in the industry to offer an automatic tensioning
cylinder and combine it with a caliper disk brake for mid-stroke
