SYNCHRO-SIG™ Series: Two Hand, Anti-Tie Down Actuator (SS-PB)

The SYNCHRO-SIG™ Series Two Hand, Anti-Tie Down Actuator (SS-PB-18/24) is one in a series of actuators manufactured by Joraco Press Company, for use on all Joraco presses and equipment.  As is the case with all of our actuators, it is a direct replacement for any of the earlier versions of SYNCHRO-SIG™ Series units found on our presses.  The SS-PB retrofits to any Joraco Press Series, regardless of age, and immediately provides the operator with a modern, ergonomically engineered, anti-tie down actuator.  The actuating palm buttons found at each end of the unit must be simultaneously depressed to provide a signal to your press.  When one or both buttons are released the output is terminated.  Both buttons must then be totally released before the unit will allow another signal to the press.  The operator’s hands remain in the “neutral” position when cycling the actuator because the palms of the hand are used to depress the buttons.





IMPORTANT! All Joraco Press SYNCHRO-SIG™ Series Controllers, including the Optical Touch Two Hand Controller (SS-OT), are designed and sold for use on Joraco Press Company presses, as well as many other types of pneumatic equipment. They are intended as general use cycle initiators, and ARE NOT, in and of themselves safety devices. Because it is impossible to anticipate the conditions under which our equipment will be operated, additional devices and methods may be required to insure operator safety. Besides conforming to all national, state, OSHA, and ANSI standards and codes, the buyer should consider the safety of the entire operation involving any press or machine, and see that any additional guarding, training, and maintenance deemed necessary is developed and enforced to protect the well being of the machine operator.

  • SS-PB-18: Enclosure: left to right: 12″,  1.75″ front to back,  3.5″ top to bottom, with 18″ between the palm buttons.
  • SS-PB-24: Enclosure: left to right: 18″, 1.75″ front to back, 3.5″ top to bottom, with 24″ between the palm buttons. 
  • The SS-PB-18 and SS-PB-24 mount directly in place of existing SS units in exactly the same manner.
  • Operating Pressure:  50 PSI Minimum, 125 PSI Maximum. Pneumatic inputs and outputs connect to your Joraco Press Company press in exactly the same way as your existing SS unit.  Absolutely no changes are required to the control valving on your press.
  • Construction: The main enclosure is made of heavy gauge steel, factory sealed to maintain the integrity of the controls contained therein.  The actuating buttons are permanently secured to the enclosure and are not field serviceable.
  • Button Guards:  All SS-PB units are supplied with an integrated “ring” guard which isolates the actuating buttons as shown in the photo above.
  • Hardware:  Units are supplied with bulkhead fittings and all necessary mounting hardware. 

    NOTE:  SS-PB units can be easily mounted in places other than the press platen if your application or operator safety so demands.
