At SMC we have 'rolled' out an upgrade of our MGP Series guide cylinder, which is now smaller and boasts new features. The new MGP-Z is testament to our commitment to invest in ongoing research and development to refine and improve the performance and functionality of SMC products. The MGP-Z is up to 17% lighter and offers space savings thanks to shorter guide rods, without impacting on the variety of functions, robustness and quality performance of the original series. Another recent key development feature is that round auto switches can now be fitted directly onto the MGP-Z cylinder, removing the need for mounting brackets and reducing labour costs. The common issue of incorrectly positioned auto switches is also mitigated when using SMC's two colour indication solid state auto switch, D-M9*W. The MGP-Z has many standard feature options including three types of bearings, four mount designs, piping from two directions and offers cooper and fluorine free versions. Suitable for many industries including General Automation and Car, it has several applications including smooth pusher and lifter, lateral load by acting as a stopper where shock is applied, or minimising plate displacement.
At SMC we are always innovating and our latest guided cylinder the MGPW is no exception. This new wide guided cylinder has been designed to handle large work pieces and has enhanced plate rotation torque that is three times larger than the standard MGP Series and has improved non-rotating accuracy of the plate. Although similar in weight to the MGP, the MGPW has 170% more volume by using anodised aluminium and optimising the dimensions of various components. Easy to set-up and mount, therefore reducing labour costs, the MGPW can be used with two colour D-M9*W indication solid state auto switches or alternative round auto switches which can be fitted directly onto the cylinder. Ideal for the transfer of large work pieces and those with eccentric loads, the MGPW has three types of bearing and mounting options as standard and can manage several applications, such as lifting and pushing.
The solution for a linear-actuator subject to high loads. Ideal for material handling applications. Two basic models include a self-lubricating slide bushing and a linear ball bearing style. The 100mm slide bushing model can stop a load of 1300 Kg. traveling at 280 mm(sg, or smoothly lift a centered load of 450 Kg. with a 40% safety factor. The overall package is very compact, and pre-tapped mounting holes ensure easy attachment of fixtures. Mounts on side or bottom. The MGQ offers bore sizes from 12 to 100mm and is switch capable.
Series MGJ miniature guide rod cylinder is ideal for applications requiring high side load and high non-rotational accuracy (±0.1°). Rubber bumpers are standard. Two auto switches can be mounted with as little as 5mm of stroke.
Series MGF guide tables are low profile, compact cylinders which utilize a large concentric guiding sleeve to provide excellent eccentric load resistance. Mounting is possible from 2 directions. A built-in non-rotating mechanism prevents rotation of the table top. T-slots are provided on 3 faces of the MGF body (except port face), allowing mounting of various brackets. Optional auto switches can be mounted on 4 faces of the body.
The series MGG guided cylinder is ideally suited for material handling applications involving stopping, lifting, and pushing. It combines the functions of a conventional cylinder, linear motion guide, and non-rotation device. Features include built-in shock absorbers, finite stroke adjustment, bumpers, and switch capability. Other features include: Slide or ball bushing bearings available, built-in shock absorbers and stroke adjustments, high degree of non-rotating accuracy, and high load capabilities.
The MGZ series is a non-lube double power air cylinder available in both rotating and non-rotating styles. The MGZ's unique design doubles the pressurized area for extension making the MGZ an ideal cylinder for lifting and pressing operations. The front end lock style MGZ holds the rod when extended.
The MGC guide cylinder is ideal for material handling applications involving stopping, lifting, and pushing. It combines the functions of a conventional linear cylinder, and a non-rotation device. Features include standard air cushions, grease nipple, and switch capability. Other features include, slide or ball bushing bearings, compact design, adjustable air cushion, and lightweight guided actuator.
SMC's hygienic design guide cylinder, series HYG, offers significantly improved water resistance by adopting a new lubrication construction. The cylinder's flat configuration (grooves for auto switches and holes for cushion needles, etc. have been eliminated) allow the surface to be wiped off easily.
The CXT is designed for short stroke (up to 300mm) and high load applications. The cylinder utilizes a slide body, which incorporates large guide rods that allow greater load capability when compared to competitive slides. The CXT is equipped with optional shock absorbers or stroke adjustment. A choice of ball bushing bearing or carbon steel alloy slide bearing is available for applications that require smooth actuation or impact loading, respectively. The power source is supplied by a CQS cylinder, which is attached via a flexible coupling.
