Fabco-Air Pancake Cylinder, 1/2"-4" Bore





Fabco-Air Pancake Cylinder, 1/2"-4" Bore
The Original PANCAKE® Cylinder was designed in 1958 by Alfred W. Schmidt, the founder of Fabco-Air, Inc. This particular type of pneumatic actuator was designed to satisfy the need for short stroke, low profile, compact air cylinders that would fit in very tight spaces.
Today, over 5 decades later, the Original Pancake® Air Cylinder from Fabco-Air, Inc., is still the leader in the compact air cylinder market. The Original Pancake® Air Cylinder Line is often imitated, but never matched regarding features, options, quality, strength, appearance, and longevity.

           Available in 8 bore sizes: 1/2", 3/4", 1-1/8", 1-5/8", 2", 2-1/2", 3",and 4"

Standard stroke lengths up to 4".

The high quality, cylinder bodies are machined from the highest quality aluminum bar-stock.

The cylinder bodies are clear anodized for superior appearance and corrosion resistance.

Hard chrome plated stainless steel piston rod adds longevity to the cylinder.

A non-metallic, Duralon® rod bushing is a standard feature that strengthens one of the primary load bearing points on an air cylinder: the rod bushing.

Cylinders are pre-lubed with Magnalube-G® grease.

Pressure rated to 250 PSIG pneumatic and 500 PSIG hydraulic service.

Magnetic piston option available for cylinder position sensing.

Multitude of standard options available.

Even though the Fabco-Air, Inc., Original Pancake® Air Cylinder Line is loaded with a multitude of standard options and features, sometimes the job at hand simply falls outside the standard air cylinder product offering.
If you require a tailored or custom air cylinder, please note that Fabco-Air, Inc., is ready, willing, and able to design a specific product to meet and exceed your unique application requirements.
