Stopper cylinder

Paul Boughton

Festo, has launched the DFSP, a reliable, robust and cost effective series of stopper cylinders which are the most powerful cylinders of their type in the market.

This new cylinder can withstand up to 200% more impact force than its predecessors.

The cylinder has an increased service life, enabling engineers to reduce costs associated with maintenance and downtime. The new DFSP is also available with an internal thread in the piston rod. This allows the possibility of mounting customer specific parts and tooling, for instance plates for braking systems. 

Other key features include reduced clearance between the piston rod and bearing, improving the accuracy of the cylinder, and protection against rotation, meaning the rod will always align the stopper blade precisely with approaching carriers.
