Tie Rod Cylinders


Achieve Longer Strokes With Pancake®-style Space Savings

LONGSTROKE™ is ideal when you want the compact mounting footprint of a Pancake Cylinder with much longer stroke length. Available in both round and square head designs, this compact, double-acting, tie-rod-type cylinder offers standard strokes up to 12 inches and comes in four bore sizes from 2 to 4 inches.

The series features a hard-anodized cylinder barrel, chrome-plated steel piston rod, high-performance composite rod bearing and pre-lubrication with Magnalube-G® grease to ensure a long lifetime. LONGSTROKE cylinders operate at 250 psi pneumatic and 500 psi hydraulic service, and they are easy to mount.
