Machine & Engineering Co., (AME) Rockford, IL announces
the Fourth- Generation RLI Series Rod Locks. The new Pneumatic Series RLI (ISO 6431) Metric Rod Lock has
been developed as a solution to control problems inherent to pneumatics – over
travel, drifting, bouncing and reverse traveling. The AMLOK® Power-Off Rod Lock can be mounted to a
cylinder, or as a stand alone unit.
The patented AMLOK® Type RLI is constructed of black anodized
aluminum housing with a special piston and wedge locking mechanism actuated by multiple
springs that mechanically lock the rod quickly and securely. The clamp is
unlocked when air actuates the piston, compresses the spring and releases the
rod displacement on engagement
clamping surface reduces pressure-per-square-inch on the rod, extending
bar (60 psi) release pressure
clamping force in both directions
cycle rates and accuracy
load during power/pressure loss
unit, easy integration
through hole tie rod mounting to ISO 6431 style pneumatic cylinders
NFPA style-mounting attachments available for stand alone applications
The optional sealed RLI Series design is suitable for food and wash down
applications as well as pneumatic and hydraulic presses, scissor-lift tables,
test and positioning equipment, amusement ride equipment, printing and paper
handling equipment, theatrical equipment (platforms), assembly equipment, and
machine tool applications.
- fast response time
- low backlash 4 bar (60 psi) release pressure
- precision holding 0.002”-0.003”
