Powerful stopper cylinder from Festo

25 September, 2015

Festo has launched the DFSP, a series of stopper cylinders which is claimed to be able to withstand up to 200 per cent more impact force than its predecessors. According to the company, this means engineers can now benefit from a more powerful stopper but at an affordable price.


“The DFSP is able to handle and stop heavy loads of up to 6280N and is suitable for separating, stopping and indexing functions,” said Steve Sands, product manager at Festo. “These benefits make the series an ideal solution across many industries; including materials handling, machine tools, automotive and all sectors that utilise conveyor technologies.”

Increased service life

The cylinder has an increased service life, enabling engineers to reduce costs associated with maintenance and downtime. The new DFSP is also available with an internal thread in the piston rod. This allows the possibility of mounting customer specific parts and tooling, for instance plates for braking systems. Other key features include reduced clearance between the piston rod and bearing, improving the accuracy of the cylinder, and protection against rotation, meaning the rod will always align the stopper blade precisely with approaching carriers.

Sands added that compared with Festo’s previous stopper cylinders, the DFSP meets a wider range of application requirements.
