Improved Cushion Adjustment: Newly designed needle valve is interchangeable with current design and offers improved sealing characteristics.
Cushion Adjustment Needle: Needle valves and ball check drilling and machining are identical, making location of these functions interchangeable.
Tube Seal: Two-Step Pilot Recess Grooves afford Positive Controlled Squeeze on Pressure Sealed O-Ring, while Tubing locates concentrically against End Cap.
Piston: High strength, fine grain cast iron piston fitted with split “Tongue-seal” cast iron piston rings on either side of a homogenous “T” ring supplied with back-up rings. “T” ring furnished on all models; oversized are fitted with piston rings. The outboard piston rings effectively seal off initial shock loads and allow the “T” ring to provide a leak-proof piston seal with maximum life.
Heavy Wall: Steel tubing, precision honed with extra-long stones to provide over-lap and eliminate a spiral condition detrimental to long stroke cylinders. The resulting ultra-smooth finish provides maximum seal life.
Cushion Sleeves: Precision fitted with predetermined taper to provide a gradual deceleration and reduce shock.
Tie Rod: Material stressproof steel for maximum strength. Multiple tie rods in each corner are furnished on all models, 10” thru 20” diameter bores.
Piston Rod: High tensile 100,000PSI minimum yield stressproof steel, ground, polished, and flash chrome plated .0003/.0005 to provide a hard, long-wearing surface with low friction, but not corrosion resistant. Consult factory for special applications.
Rod Packing: Choice of self-adjusting to pressure, multi-lip split seal or continuous pre-loaded lip seal.
Packing Gland: Readily removable long bearing type. Rod packing easily replaced without loosening tie rods or dismantling cylinder.
Rod Wiper: Wipes rod clean and dry. Keeps foreign matter from entering cylinder, extending packing life.
Rod End Threading: Choice of standard catalog male and female thread types plus standard wrench flats.
Cushion Ball Check: Assures quick starting under full power; pressure acts on full piston area instantaneously.
End Caps: (Cylinder Heads) Precision Broached Steel Blocks

The NOPAK Class 3 Mill Type Cylinder offers the advantages of field-proven Class 3 design integrity in a non tie rod unit. All features found in the other Class 3 models are incorporated into the Mill Series.
Easily mounted in cylinder heads to confirm the position of the piston. The switch senses cushion sleeves position at the end of stroke. Being totally self contained, the switch will not be contaminated.
No contact design, has both analog and digital outputs available. Feedback sensor is protected from debris and mechanical damage.
