The KC40 is the most powerfull cilinder within the range of hydro-pneumatic power cylinders. Utilizing a maximal pushing force of 40 metric tons and an effective stroke of 21 mm, this power cylinder is suitable for the most demanding punching and cutting operations in steel and plastics. Hydro-pneumatic cilinders are characterized by the conversion of pneumatic energy to hydraulic energy. This allows for the power cylinders to be hooked up to an industrial compressor while still providing the power of hydraulics at the tool side. The KC40 has several mouting points for ease of integration into any structure or frame.
