EF-II

Bimba EF-II series cylinders are compact, non-rotating, aluminum extruded body air cylinders. Non-rotation is achieved through twin guide shafts and an anodized aluminum tooling plate with high strength stainless steel fasteners.  With its streamlined look, low cost, and low-profile switch, it is an excellent choice for space saving machine design.
