Tooling Technology has added a new product to its line of Segen pneumatic quick-change cylinder locks.
The new PD500 Mega Cylinder helps decrease changeover times on large tools, fixtures, molds, and dies for many industries. The 11-lb. unit instantly locates and locks its mating 2-lb. knob in an accurate, repeatable home position with 25,000 lbs. of static holding force, the company states.
The cylinder lock has a corrosion-resistant finish and an operational temperature range between -65 and 450 degrees F. According to the manufacturer, the high-strength steel knobs withstand high shear loads, accelerating the changeovers of larger, inverted, and vertically positioned tools, molds, and dies.
