If you need full-length chrome-plated steel bar converted into finished hydraulic cylinder piston rods in one fully automatic operation, Bardons & Oliver CNC piston rod systems deliver. Respond to customer requirements in hours, not days. Quick system setup will make multiple parts runs in one eight-hour shift the standard for your daily routine. As an added benefit, hollow-bar (chrome-plated tubing) and “nitrobar” are also processed on these systems.
The piston rod systems:
Finished rod machining in the most complex configurations to meet. Your machining needs include:
Each of the above configurations can be part of the same one-step automatic manufacturing process. These features can be added to the rod in a matter of seconds with no additional handling or operator intervention.
All surfaces that touch the bar, except for the full wrap collet pads are covered with nylon or Delrin® materials to protect the bar. Scrap resulting from nicks or dings occurring from parts moving through the shop will be eliminated with a Bardons & Oliver system.
Further improving your production efficiency, the Bardons & Oliver automatic part unloader can perform as an element of your system, handling finished rod lengths from 6" to 28 feet long. Your team will maximize your response to customers.
