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.
