Peninsular announces a partnership with Amlok, adding fail-safe rod locking devices to its cylinder product offerings. The integrated unit targets applications requiring utmost safety including amusement ride equipment, earth moving equipment, and hydraulic presses.
Amlok's products supply double-acting locking action for variable clamping in both directions on round shafts and rods. They leverage mechanical spring clamping with pneumatic or hydraulic release, and can be used to hold loads during power or pressure loss. They can attach directly to cylinders and actuators, or be used in stand-alone applications. Models are available in sealed versions for the food industry, wash-down, and underwater applications.
