The clamping unit Ratio-Clamp® is used to securely clamp piston rods and any other rods. It is used as a separate unit or as an attachment to a hydraulic cylinder.
Ratio-Clamp® will continue to clamp during controlled or uncontrolled pressure drops, and even in case of an emergency shutdown or a power failure.
The device can be used for stepless load-holding over unlimited periods of time.
Its purpose is to clamp piston rods safely in place immediately from a standstill - it is not a brake.
The respective states - piston rod clamped (locked) or unlocked - can be detected by inductive proximity switches. These can be chosen directly in the electronic catalogue or installed at a later date.
A functional control system with an automatic sequence can be implemented by the use of a control block.
