Locking Units

Locking Units

Precision, power-off, double-acting locking units are used primarily as functional clamps for position and hold applications to prevent unwanted axial movement in both directions. Pneumatic or hydraulic options available for clamping round shafts/rods.

PowerStroke

PowerStroke

The PowerStroke can be used in any horizontal and vertical application requiring large forces to be built up over short working distances. Separating the fast stroke and force stroke by design, the PowerSroke makes systems requiring high forces and fast movement more compact, energy-efficient, and fast.

Special Solutions

Special Solutions

Specializing in the development and production of unique clamping devices and linear brakes, SITEMA’s specialists create solutions for open air, below-zero temperatures, underwater, and other aggressive environments for rods up to 300 mm in diameter featuring mechanical, electropneumatic, and electronic systems.
