Tolomatic rodless air cylinders are available in band-type, cable and magnetically coupled air cylinder styles

All Rodless Cylinders Product Shot

A rodless pneumatic air cylinder can guide and support a load throughout the entire stroke length of the cylinder making them a great choice over rod-style air cylinders for longer stroke applications where saving space is a concern. Tolomatic rodless pneumatic air cylinders offer a variety of bearing styles that can accommodate light, moderate and heavy loads with maximum durability.

Why choose a rodless air cylinder?

See the rodless space saving advantages

A typical NFPA tie rod cylinder with a 2-inch body size and an 8-inch stroke, has an approximate overall length when the rod is extended of 21.75 inches.

The equivalent 2-inch body size, 8-inch stroke rodless cylinder has an overall length of 14.3 inches. Since the rodless cylinder stroke is contained within the cylinder itself, there is a 34% smaller footprint than a rod style. As the stroke length increases, so does the space savings of a rodless cylinder.


A rodless cylinder actuator guides and supports the load throughout the entire stroke length. Utilizing a variety of different bearing and load carrying design techniques, bending moments are better controlled resulting in long wear without seal or bearing stress.
