AATExpo 2011: RTC Rodless Pneumatic Cylinders from Rexroth

AATExpo 2011: RTC Rodless Pneumatic Cylinders from Rexroth

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.

(Lexington, KY – The Rexroth RTC (Rodless Thrust Cylinder) line of pneumatic cylinders are now available from Lexington, KY in lengths up to 23 feet with two weeks lead time. Previously, shorter strokes (up to 118”) were already on the GoTo focused delivery program with a one week lead time. 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.
