I have had MUCH trouble getting BIMBA cylinders this season. In addition to the PDV order, I have also placed another order with a local distributor. We are now two weeks pasts the promised ship date and Bimba keeps putting off the ship date until later.
I am in need of two 3/4 inch bore single acting 6" stroke spring return cylinders to complete our robot. We are otherwise fully assembled.
+1 more for Automation Direct - there was a problem with our account (I no longer have access to the email address I used last year), and the next day I was speaking directly to their FIRST program associate from his home…solved my problem and got our two cylinders out immediately. It was probably the best customer service I’ve experienced.
