3D Cylinder Configurator with CAD

Parker’s 3D cylinder configurator allows users to design a cylinder, create model codes, download CAD drawings and request pricing for pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders including tie rod, compact, valve actuator, and roundline cylinders. Our native CAD files let you manipulate the moving parts of any of our pneumatic or hydraulic heavy-duty cylinders. You can watch the cylinder’s rod extend and retract in the CAD design software so you can adjust your cylinder model to take advantage of its precise motion constraints and its dimensions in various positions.

Parker’s cylinder configurator allows users to download the exact product model needed — reducing time, complexity, effort, and error — while increasing accuracy, ease of use, speed of configuration and delivery, and productivity during a cylinder design and specification process.


Switches mounted on our hydraulic cylinders add value to your machine design - Position Sensing with a Magnetic Piston and Standard Steel Tube

Choose the style that’s right for your needs:

Tie Rod Mounted Switches – actuated by a magnetic piston, the switches can be positioned at any location along the cylinder to indicate end-of-stroke or mid-stroke locations. Multiple switches can be installed with numbers only restricted by available tie rod mounting space. The switches are non-intrusive and maintain pressure envelope integrity. They are available for PH-2 Series in 1.50" - 6.00" bores, PL-2, and PA-2 Series in 1.00" - 4.00" bores.

Head and Cap Mounted Switches - Switches feature a fixed mount design that is actuated by proximity (without contact) of cushion sleeve or spear and provide an end-of-stroke signal with or without functional cushion. The switches are available up to 10.00" bore PA-2 Series and 8.00" bore PL-2 & PH-2 Series
