Bimba Introduces Economical Compact Pneumatic Cylinders

University Park, IL – August 18, 2015 -- Bimba Manufacturing Company, an industry- leading provider of pneumatic, hydraulic, and electric solutions, and its subsidiary Mead Fluid Dynamics (MFD), an innovative manufacturer of pneumatic components, today announced the addition of compact pneumatic cylinders to its full line of MFD products.

The new cylinders (MACQ series), are constructed with a robust, extruded aluminum body. Double-acting, available in ten different bore sizes and a wide range of standard stroke lengths, the new cylinders can also be obtained with a magnetic piston to enhance position sensing.

The new compact line is suited for a broad range of general automation processes, providing flexibility in space-sensitive machine design applications. The low-cost line is also globally interchangeable with industry alternatives, allowing for quick drop-in replacement parts.

“The MACQ compact cylinders are a logical extension of the full line of rotary actuators, air preparation equipment, solenoid valves and extruded thrusters that comprise our MFD product series. The new compact cylinder series maintains the high quality standard for which MFD Pneumatics is known and that our customers have come to expect,” said Tom Kane, General Manager for Mead Fluid Dynamics.
