Designed for 2 million load cycles

New hydraulic cylinder series with defined life cycle

Reliable components for main and auxiliary functions determine machine dependability and availability. Until now, design engineers had to choose hydraulic cylinders based on the required pressure range without any accurate life cycle data. Bosch Rexroth now gives design engineers a secure data base: the new mill type cylinder range CDL2 is designed and tested for 2 million load cycles.


Machine manufacturers are increasingly demanding cost-optimized hydraulic cylinders with a high degree of reliability. Bosch Rexroth meets these demands with the new CDL2 mill type cylinder for both pressure ranges of 160 and 250 bar. They are designed for two million load cycles. Design engineers can thus accurately calculate the cylinders’ life cycle for each application and determine the price/performance ratio with transparency.

Four different mounting types and strokes up to 3,000 mm cover a broad application spectrum, such as for the wood and paper industry, general machinery construction, as well as for recycling and material handling. Bosch Rexroth has also simplified the entire engineering and ordering process. Design engineers can select all versions online using Rexroth’s interactive catalog system. It contains 2D/3D CAD data, order code and installation drawings for the selected cylinder, and all accessories. All options are configurable by default and enable short delivery times. The new CDL2 cylinder range supplements the broad Rexroth spectrum of hydraulic components and complete hydraulic systems.
