When looking for a cost-effective and efficient solution for your rod cylinder application, you may be looking at many different options. The trick is to fit your rod cylinder to the requirements of your application, and with our OVLPRO options, we can help. Here’s how to properly size and select the right OVLPRO rod cylinder, from our VP of Engineering & General Manager, Chad Randleman.

No matter what your industry, the equipment in your production facilities has certain requirements in common. It has to provide:
- Durability and reliability that ensure maximum uptime
- Benefits that ensure a strong return on investment
And it has to be a perfect fit for your operating environment. But not all environments are equal. Some, such as automated assembly in the medical and semiconductor industries, are far more demanding. Here, positioning equipment must perform with ultra-high precision and stability, often at very high speeds and in limited space. And components have to be appropriate for clean environments. Without all that, you cannot maintain the integrity of products coming off the line.
Food processing is complex, which is why these types of facilities are often huge and require multiple types of movements, from transport and sorting to lifting and rotating. Speed, reliability and sanitation are critical for processing facilities, especially if they handle perishables. In this environment, a compact cylinder provides several distinct advantages.
If you need push/pull pneumatic automation in a tight space, take a look at the new OVLPROTM Low Profile Cylinders from W.C. Branham.
OVLPRO cylinders are compact, lightweight and repairable. They are pre-lubricated for high duty cycles, and the new OVP25 series may be just what you're missing.
