Flat-I® Multiple Power
Bimba F02, F03, and F04 series Flat-I® cylinders are double acting, single end rod cylinders that multiply the force output by supplying air to multiple pistons on extension. They save space and eliminate the need for a higher pressure system. Only one piston is powered on the return stroke, saving air volume and operating costs.
Bore sizes: 2-1/2″, 3″, 4″
Precision machined anodized aluminum heads
Maximum Pressure: 100 PSI (air only)
Square Flat-II® Non-Rotating
Square Flat-II® non-rotating, double acting cylinders provide the answer to applications where rotation cannot be tolerated. Non-rotation is achieved with dual piston rods and a rod end block that insures the rods work in tandem. This design eliminates the need for any type of external alignment devices and the square end caps allow for bottom flush or face mounting.
303 stainless steel tie-rods
Flat-II® cylinders are ideal in applications where rotation is prohibited and space is minimal. Non-rotation is achieved using dual piston rods and a rod end block that ensures the rods work in tandem. The Flat-II® eliminates the need for external alignment devices, such as guides, rods, and alignment posts or pins.
Square Flat-I® series cylinders are a convenient alternative for horizontal and side mounting, with provisions for both bottom flush, or face mounting. This design also minimizes the centerline distance when cylinders are mounted side by side. With a variety of stroke lengths and options available, you can customize these cylinders to your application needs.
Bore sizes: 3/4″, 1-1/16″, 1-1/2″, 2″, 2-1/2″, 3″, 4″

Back to Back
You can mix and match any series of cylinder together to create a “back to back” design. They must have the same bore size, and will be built as one unit that utilizes common tie-rods. Mounts include a full range of base, tie-rod, and head or cap trunnions for pivot mounting, or multiple mounts. Back to back cylinders provide positive “hard” stop positioning.
Combine any two series together for limitless design possibilities
Different stroke lengths can be provided for endless stroke position possibilities
“Hard” stops are provided with all four positions
Back-to-back cylinders are built with standard parts, reducing overall costs
Spacers can be used between the cylinders to allow room for side by side cap porting

Flush Mount Rod Lock
FM series cylinders are one of the most versatile cylinders on the market. They feature (4) tapped holes at each end and flush sleeve nut construction at head end. FM series mounting kits convert the basic cylinder to rear pivot or flange mount, so they can be used in different applications by simply changing the mount.
