SMC’s latest compact cylinders, the JMGP guide cylinder and the compact
JCQ Series, have been designed with weight and space savings in mind. Both help
to reduce machine sizes and costs, and deliver increased efficiency due to their
lightweight nature which could enhance cycle time.

SMC, the worldwide leading expert in pneumatics, is helping customers meet
the demand for space saving components that drive down costs and drive up productivity,
with the launch of two compact cylinders.
The JMGP is a guide cylinder, featuring a dual rod, which has been designed
for a variety of applications including pushing, clamping and lifting where
there are space and weight restrictions in a transport line or for robotic manipulation
and handling. The compact JCQ is ideal for similar applications where a short
cylinder is required, but without the lifting capability.
A spokesperson from SMC said: “With space being at a premium in many
manufacturing plants, the need to produce smaller, more efficient machinery
is growing. These two new models achieve just that, as they are both smaller
than similar cylinders on the market. Being lighter in weight, they also achieve
improved cycle times and help to deliver higher output.”
