​Repairable Hole Punch Cylinder

Bore Sizes:  3/4"
Cutter Diameters:  1/4", 5/16”, 3/8”, 7/16”, 1/2", 9/16”, 5/8”

The hole punch cylinder features permanent grease lubrication.
Design enhancements have more than doubled the anticipated service life of this cylinder, designed with a 1" stroke and includes a hardened steel cutter available in 7 different diameters.  These cylinders are designed to punch millions of holes in thin poly material (3mil thickness or less).

Can be ordered with cutter omitted, allowing customers to add their own cutter design.
Hollow rod design creates an air jet to eject the cut-out slug every cycle.


New:  Blue and Improved design doubles previous cylinder life, Permanent grease lubricant requires no additional lubrication during service.


ISO Cylinder

Bore Sizes: 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 63mm, 80mm, 100mm.
Standard Stroke Lengths:  1-2800mm

Available in six bore sizes and multiple stroke lengths, these air cylinders are interchangeable in applications using the ISO 15552 (previously 6431) standard anywhere in the world.  Standard options are available that provide application specific air cylinder selection.  Customized ISO 15552 (previously 6431) cylinders with internal position feedback capabilities are also available.

Options:  cushions, double ended, rod extension, high temperature seals
Two types of pivot brackets available
