Nexen's Rod Locks - Now Available
with Manual Release

Nexen's rod locks have been a huge
success winning over many machine designers who were looking for a better rod
locking solution for pneumatic cylinders and stand alone guide rod
applications. With their compact dimensions, high holding forces, durability,
low backlash, IP67 and NEMA 4X ratings how do you improve on them? How about
adding a manual release and the ability to provide feedback on their
locked/unlocked status (optional)!

The Rod Locks are spring-engaged,
air released, but feature the ability to release manually. No special tools are
required for manual disengagement, just a standard size hex wrench to turn the
cam operated release mechanism.

Features and benefits include:

  • Manual release with standard hex wrench or socket
    wrench
  • Ability to add a internal magnet and non-contact sensor
    to provide locking mode feedback
  • Compact dimensions and a profile that matches the end
    of the pneumatic cylinder
  • Rod Lock rated for 1,000,000 static locking cycles
  • No rod displacement on engagement or disengagement
  • Large rod clamping surface minimizes rod and lock wear
  • Fast response time
  • IP67 rated (exceeds NEMA 4X on anodized versions)
  • 4 bar (60 psi) release pressure
  • Pilot ends have mounting provisions so rod locks can be
    stacked for higher holding forces or accept standard pneumatic cylinder
    accessories
