In particular applications, it can be necessary that the rod leaves the clamping head, e.g. for reasons of accessibility or restrictions regarding space that do not allow a rod that is permanently in place.
Especially in applications where moulds are closed and kept closed against high forces with the SITEMA PowerStroke, it is a big advantage when the rod can leave the clamping head. Thus, the rods are no obstacle when taking finished parts out of the mould or when handling parts.
With certain modifications, most of our series can be adapted as special designs to allow the rod leaving and re-entering the clamping head. We have already realised a great number of such solutions for vertical and horizontal applications. Contact us for more information!
