May 2, 2018 - Aventics introduced The RTC-SB, The slide bearing version rounds off the pneumatics specialist’s RTC range of rodless cylinders.
As with the other double-acting rodless cylinders from Aventics, at the heart of the RTC-SB (slide bearing) is its oval piston shape. Equipped with a lubrication-free slide bearing, the cylinder is resistant to water, chemicals and dirt. The slide play is adjusted at the factory.
The RTC-SB rodless cylinder is designed for a maximum speed of 6.5 m/s (21.3 ft./s). The maximum stroke is around 6,000mm (21.6 ft.). A magnetically attached exterior strip, scraper and sealing strip protect the cylinder from dust and dirt. The RTC precision cushioning can achieve what Aventics describes as “Ideal Cushioning” with the proper tools and adjustment.
The RTC cylinder completes the Aventics range of double-acting rodless cylinders. The RTC-SB version with bore sizes ranging from 25 to 40 mm closes the previous gap between the basic version (RTC-BV) and the versions designed for higher loads, the RTC-CG (compact guide) and RTC-HD (heavy duty).
