Rap i d i ndex i ng, s t amp i ng, punch i ng, par t l oca t i on , Mount to centerline of work to avoid side load on rod. Mount securely, without over-torquing mounting nuts. Check frequently for loose mountings. A secure mount, accurately placed, promotes cylinder performance and endurance. Side load on rod should be eliminated. Severe side load or stress can cause rod breakage, excessive bushing wear, and scoring of piston/ barrel. Consider Option N (Wearstrip). Reduce adverse effect of side load by attaching a universal rod eye to the piston rod. Also, consider utilizing only part of total stroke...keep piston “back” in barrel for greater column strength. Avoid “bottoming-out” piston on cylinder heads at high pressures. Consider Option B (Bumper). All models are factory prelubricated for optimum life and performance. Periodically lubricate internally with a non-detergent mineral-base oil. Automatic air line lubricators are most commonly used. To solve lubrication problems due to lubricant backflow during control valve exhaust cycle, install a Fabco quick exhaust valve directly to the cylinder port. This stops backflow and allows progressive flow of oil to cylinder. Avoid using higher pressure than is actually required. Nominal air pressure provides optimum cylinder life, reduces use and cost of compressed air, and saves energy. e t c . , are i dea l l y su i t ed t o a i r cy l i nde r s .
