In this video, Troy Branham is joined by Tobias Suter, Owner and Managing Director of Lanamatic, as he introduces one of their unique products – a variation of their compact pneumatic rodless cylinder. Lanamatic is a Swiss manufacturer of pneumatic rodless cylinders, which can be found under the W.C. Branham DURATRK label.
What Sets the Customized Compact Version Apart
Lanamatic originally designed this unique cylinder for a Chinese client who had a special request regarding a door opening/closing mechanism. Lanamatic used their compact rodless cylinder design because it needed to fit into a tight area without sacrificing stroke length. They adopted the design of the yolk and pressuring pin based off the standard short version of the cylinder, reaching a length to which they could fulfill the client's needs.
Extra long cushioning at each end of the cylinder was adapted to handle the weight and forces of the door, which is crucial for this special design to ensure the door can open and close quickly and safely.
This is an excellent example of how customizable product needs can be met here at W.C. Branham.
