Rodless cylinder is widely used in various fields because of its small volume, which can save space for mechanical design. Since the rodless air cylinder has no connecting rod, its stroke length is almost the same as its own length. Therefore, under the same volume, the working efficiency of rodless single acting cylinder is often higher than that of traditional cylinder.
At present, the rodless cylinders in the market are mostly made of high-quality materials and advanced technology. These standard rodless cylinders can provide millions of continuous cycles. The pulley made of high-quality aluminum and excellent sealing can provide reliable operation for enclosed rodless cylinder. In the service life, the performance of the rodless cylinder can be ensured only by simple regular maintenance.
Periodic Maintenance Of Rodless Cylinder
In order to avoid failure of rodless double acting cylinder during operation, we must maintain it regularly. In this way, we can minimize the downtime and production cost of the equipment in case of any unforeseen emergency. We recommend keeping the rodless cylinder clean and regularly checking the pulley, cable and gland seals for stains. In addition, the rodless rotary pneumatic cylinder needs to be fully lubricated with lubricating oil.
Replacement Of The Cables On Rodless Cylinder
When the cable on the traditional rodless cylinder is damaged, you need to replace it. First, you need to remove the cable cylinder from the machine, and then disconnect the cable from the clevis or load bracket. Remove the pulley from both cylinder heads and save the retaining ring for reconnection. Remove the gland retaining ring from each head and save the retaining ring for reconnection. Then remove the hexagon screw on each head. Grasp a cable and pull the piston towards one end until the piston is exposed. Then, you need to disconnect the cables at both ends of the piston and pull the cable assembly back through each cable head to facilitate its removal.
Thread the new cable assembly through the cable head in reverse order and lubricate the O-ring on the cable gland. When reinstalling the integral gland, be careful not to use sharp tools, which may damage the cable seal. Install the retaining ring of the gland and replace all seals and gaskets. After that, you need to reconnect the cable assembly to the piston.
Put the piston back into the tube and use a blunt tool to insert the piston u-cup into the tube. Reinstall the cylinder head with the hexagon screw, paying attention to the correct alignment of the cylinder head. Then, you need to reinstall the pulley assembly and reconnect the cable assembly to the clevis or load bracket. Finally, you need to test the function of the cable cylinder. After installation, you need to tighten the cable to ensure the maximum service life of the rodless magnetic cylinder.
When you need a cylinder with low power and high precision, Rodless cylinder is your best choice. The rodless telescopic cylinder can operate reliably with minimal maintenance. Rodless cylinders have different configurations and can be used in different environments.
