IMTS 2012: RTC rodless pneumatic cylinders available through GoTo program

Rexroth RTC rodless cylinders now available in lengths up to 23 feet with reduced lead time.

RTC rodless cylinders from Rexroth are ideal for powerful applications in tight installation conditions. The pneumatic cylinders are available in three versions, providing the right solution for every demand.

The Rexroth RTC (Rodless Thrust Cylinder) line of pneumatic cylinders is manufactured in Lexington, KY and available for fast delivery via the Rexroth GoTo focused delivery program. The GoTo program covers bore sizes from 16mm to 80mm and strokes up to 72” for the inch version and 1800mm for the metric version. Shipment is 5 to 10 days depending on size and model. Longer strokes are also available outside of the GoTo program. The RTC features a high load capacity, space saving design with speeds up to 22 feet per second.

Be it high precision, compact dimensions, high performance, or cost-effectiveness - the cylinders in the RTC series are available in three versions. While the basic version RTC-BV (Basic Version) is suitable for general use, the RTC-CG (Compact Guide) version offers high precision packed into compact dimensions. The RTC-HD (Heavy Duty) version is designed for handling heavy loads with precision.

The RTC is available in diameters of 16-80 mm (5/8”-3”) and with a maximum stroke length of 9900 mm (32.5 ft.), depending on version and size, and is available with ISO-G or NPT ports. Online configurator and calculation programs help determine the right cylinder for every application and CAD files can be downloaded.

An oval-shaped piston provides excellent load capacity and high moment resistance. The slide and piston in the RTC are constructed as a single unit allowing it to move higher loads than other cylinders. The RTC guided versions (RTC-CG and RTC-HD) come with an Easy-2-Combine interface allowing simple combination with many other Rexroth actuators and components. The RTC is part of the Rexroth Easy Handling system which easily integrates controls, pneumatic and electro-mechanical actuators, plus aluminum framing into a system optimized for customers’ applications.
