The HWC features a simple inlet design, constant hydraulic flow, provision for coolant-through with a rotating union and a proximity switch or linear system stroke control. Also, it also features standard built-in trapping which keeps the cylinder in its extended or retracted state for a period of time in the event of a hydraulic failure. The product is currently stocked in sizes 85mm and 125mm and is available for immediate delivery from the Traverse City, Michigan plant.
