New Block Cylinder Line Offers Multiple Sizes and Mounting Styles
Cumsa expands its product offerings with its own line of block cylinders in multiple sizes and mounting styles.
Cumsa USA expands its product offerings with its own line of block cylinders in multiple sizes and mounting styles. The company added the hydraulic cylinders after its new production plant opened in May 2018. Cumsa has been assisted by the support of two cylinder manufacturing companies, each of which has more than 50 years of experience in this field.
Cumsa block cylinders are specifically designed for the high standards required in the moldmaking industry. They are available in different mounting styles and can incorporate an end-of-stroke detection sensor and/or purge.
Two models are currently available. The Model A offers 12 different mounting styles, with a maximum working pressure 250 bar (3600 psi), and eight different piston diameters (from 16 mm to 100 mm), with working temperatures up to 85°C (185 °F). The Model B offers five different mounting styles and incorporates cooling to allow use in molds with higher working temperatures up to 150°C (302°F).

Although PERC (Programmable Electric Rotating Cores System) is not a brand-new technology, it warrants a second look as a way for moldmakers to provide another value-added service to their customers.
