B I M B A The cutaway drawings above show how the Bimba magnetically-coupled Ultran rodless cylinder works. Three magnets are located on the carriage. Three matching magnets are on the piston. (For 5/16" bore, five magnets are used.) These magnets form a strong bond that holds the carriage and piston together. When the cylinder is actuated, the piston and carriage move back and forth as one unit. The magnetic attraction between the magnets determines a cylinder's magnetic coupling strength. The Bimba Ultran rodless cylinder provides one of the highest coupling strengths available. This means it can carry higher loads without causing the piston to uncouple from the carriage. Bimba also offers two magnetic coupling strength options (Gold and Silver) to suit a wide variety of applications. The Silver option uses two sets of magnets instead of three. (For 5/16" bore, four sets of magnets are used.) Bimba offers a model with built-in guides (Ultran Slide) and an unguided unit (Ultran).
