Flat-1® 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"
  • 304 stainless steel body prevents corrosion
  • Standard oil impregnated bronze rod bushing
  • Stainless piston rod
  • Precision machined anodized aluminum heads
