Double Acting Work Supports
Double Acting Work Supports are unique in the industry and their secret weapon is a radically new sleeve design. Thicker by 2.5 times over other work supports on the market, this efficient sleeve consistently contacts around the plunger to give uniform clamping load and grip. This feature provides an improved uniform clamping surface with reduced Elastic Deformation under load.
You will want to use work supports whenever your application requires positive retraction of the work support plunger such as in automatic or un-attended applications. The support plunger is retracted when hydraulic pressure retracts the shuttle cylinder, meaning you will not be relying on a mechanical spring to return the plunger to its initial starting position.
You will want to consider work supports whenever your application requires extremely tight tolerances. When pressurized, the TuffGrip™ work support sets a new industry standard for minimizing elastic deformation and maximizing uniformity in clamping surface stability.
You will want to use work supports if you have an application where the single acting fluid advanced work support may "kick" your part out of position when unclamping the system. The hydraulic pressure on the internal sleeve gripping the plunger is maintained until the double acting positioning piston retracts, opening an internal check valve. This check valve releases the pressure on the sleeve, releasing the plunger after it has been "pulled" back from the piece part. This "shuttle" action prevents "part ejection" that can be experienced in some instances with fluid advanced work supports.
