Uses for Locking Cylinders and Actuators

Work with YorkPMH for your fluid power actuators and cylinders. As you are aware, the actuator is the component that controls the moving and controlling of your mechanisms or systems. Our actuators are unique in that they are custom-designed with our Bear-Loc® positive locking system. This is a proprietary product that is extremely simple to use yet highly flexible, with infinite locking positions and very durable: it will last for decades.

More important, its fail-safe properties make it the safest hydraulic locking unit you can buy. Whether pressure is removed on command, or if pressure is lost, the Bear-Loc® locks in place automatically, eliminating the danger to your employees. Once hydraulic pressure is restored, you can move the lock to any position you would like. You will not find this product from any other company.

Also, we can customize a Bear-Loc® to attach to your existing component by eye or flange mount, or other configurations such as heavy flange, trunnion, foot, or extended tie rod, depending on your needs.
