Core pull units

Core pull units are primarily used in mold construction, but can also be used for other applications in which precise guiding is needed. By using these units, the user does not need to design an elaborate guide, such as those required with core pullers. The core pull unit is designed so that the entire piston surface is acted upon for „pulling“. Unlike with a pulling cylinder, this means that a smaller piston can be used with the same operating pressure. The space savings with this design can be up to 35% compared to conventional solutions.
The precise guiding of the slide is ensured through the use of cross roller guides.

  • Specially designed for core pulling
  • Maximum operating pressure 250bar
  • Piston diameters 32mm, 40mm and 50mm
  • Ground, hardened and hard chrome plated piston rods
  • During core pulling, the full piston area is available, meaning that a smaller piston diameter is required.
  • Guided through high-precision cross-roller guides
  • End position attenuation on both sides as standard

Locking cylinder

The Locking Cylinder is designed for the application in injection mold manufacturing.
Depending on the part geometry to be injected, it may be necessary to create a breakthrough or an undercut. The application requires keeping a core or a feeder in the cavity. This task is achieved through a Locking Cylinder. With its compact design, it withstands very high forces thanks to a mechanical locking mechanism (positive locking). This is mainly used in injection mold manufacturing.

  • Compact block construction
  • High holding force
  • Locking with pretension is possible
  • Reliable signal emission in locked condition

Electro-hydraulic linear drives

„The e-ahp electro-hydraulic linear actuator combines the advantages of electric (clean, maintenance-free, easy connection) and hydraulic drive systems (high forces, high speeds). A groundbreaking product!“
Christen Merkle,
General Manager

The benefits of the e-ahp technology

  • No hydraulic unit: avoids costs and effort for a power unit, hydraulic hoses and piping
  • Clean and ecological: completely encapsulated and filled ex-factory with a minimum amount of hydraulic oil
  • Easy integration: simplifies initial installation and maintenance through purely electrical integration
  • Very energy-efficient: uses energy only when it is actually needed
  • Very dynamic: both for high force build-up and for high travel speed
  • Precisely controllable: very precise control of force or position, even in the μm range
  • Maximum forces: very high forces of up to 625 kN (62.5 tons); with our special actuators, even up to 5 MN (500 tons)
  • Robust and wear-resistant: being completely insensitive to external force impact, they are virtually wear-free even in continuous operation

Flanged cylinder

Flanged cylinders are round hydraulic cylinders with flanges. Thanks to their small dimensions they are often used in fixture and mold construction. The pressure ports are located in the screw-on flange, and thus at one end of the cylinder. In practice, flanged cylinders are best suited for strokes up to 100 mm; in addition, the use of double-lined cylinders is advisable.

  • Compact Hydraulic Cylinder
  • Maximum operating pressure 250bar
  • Primarily used for mold construction
  • Piston diameters from Ø25mm to Ø80mm
  • Piston rods ground and hardened

Double-Lined cylinder

Double lined cylinders are hydraulic cylinders with a very special design. Structurally they are designed with two cylinder tubes that are built one inside the other and sealed pressure-tight relative to each other. They can be ordered even for long strokes. The distinguishing feature of double lined cylinders is their round construction with a flange at one end. The flange is located either at the rod end or at the piston end. Attached to this flange are both ports for the forwards and return stroke, and the cylinder is also mounted on it. The use of double lined cylinders is always advisable when due to long strokes and installation in large molds one end of the cylinder is hard to access, and thus both ports have to be located on one end.

  • Round Hydraulic Cylinder
  • Maximum operating pressure 250bar
  • Piston diameters from Ø32mm to Ø80mm
  • Connections always only on one side, even with larger strokes
  • Multiple mounting options available

Our constant striving for perfection over the entire process chain has also made it possible for us to supply products that are always perfectly tailored to our customers' stringent requirements – whether they come from the tool making, mould and die making, machine building industries, aluminum pressure die-casting, deburring tool construction, hydroforming, punching tool construction or other sectors.

Many of our custom-developed cylinders are now regarded as industry standards – standards resulting from a modularly structured product mix policy that signifies cost-effective customization with a simultaneously high level of efficiency and quick availability to our customers. An outstanding achievement that would be unthinkable without the more than 260 employees at our headquarters in Gottenheim, Germany, and without those working in our sales subsidiaries in Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Suzhou (China), as well as in Guissano (Italy) and Marhina Grande (Portugal). But also an achievement that has allowed us to establish an international presence in Europe, North America and Asia.

What is the basis of our success? As a family-run company, we foster and believe in values. And we live these values. AHP DNA is special and unique. In addition to continuity, integrity and sustainability, the values we promote also include reliability, honesty and openness. Although we also operate economically and must be successful, we nevertheless foster a philosophy that is guided not by quarters but instead by generations: Ideal values that are becoming even more essential, especially in a fast-moving world, and simultaneously serve as a foundation for the necessary quality – quality that with us knows no compromises.
