AME Rod Locks

Nov. 19, 2009
Advanced Machine & Engineering Co. (AME) introduces the RLN series of pneumatic rod locks featuring a piston and wedge locking mechanism that locks the cylinder rod on a lift truck in the event of a power loss.

When power is restored, air actuates the piston, and a spring inside the mechanism compresses to release the locking device. The rod lock can be mounted to an NFPA-style pneumatic cylinder or used as a standalone retrofit to a lift truck.

According to AME, the RLN series can be used on lift trucks, presses, scissor-lift tables, testing and positioning equipment and assembly machinery.
