Telescopic cylinders work under optimal conditions when the load is in axial position, i.e. when the cylinder is placed vertically, working either upward or downward. They can obviously work also horizontally and cantilevered, but in this case it is needed to:
- Reduce the maximum stroke by 50% compared to nominal maximum strokes
- Request cylinders with slide units
- Support the radial load by means of other devices such as carriages, slides or sliding guides.
