Linear Actuators – Special Applications

CG5-S

CG5-S

SMC's CG5-S series is a stainless steel cylinder, perfect for use in wash down applications such as food processing machinery requiring intense cleaning.  The use of non-toxic additives allows confident use in equipment for foods, beverages and medical products, etc.  The CG5-S can be disassembled, allowing replacement of seals, which promotes an extended service life.  SMC provides plugs for unused mounting threads to prevent residue build-up in the threads.  The use of stainless steel (SUS304) on external metal parts provides improved corrosion resistance in environments with exposure to water.


CJ5

CJ5

Series CJ5-S is a small bore stainless steel cylinder, designed for use in environments with water spray (such as food processing machines). A special scraper (standard) prevents water from entering the cylinder. Non-toxic additives allow confident use in equipment for food, beverage and medical products, etc. The CJ5-S series can be disassembled for replacement of seals.


HYB

HYB

Production and packaging applications involving food and beverages often need specialized equipment to meet the strict hygiene standards required in these industry sectors.  SMC, the world leader in pneumatic technology, has developed the HY series to meet these requirements.  All the models in the HY series are particularly suitable for application in the "non-food" or "splash" zones of a production line.  Their high quality construction and optional food grease ensure an increased service life.  The HYB series has a round body profile and is available with a rail mounted auto switch, which is fully adjustable along the stroke length, providing improved cleaning benefits.

RHC

RHC

High speed or high load cylinder applications frequently require additional speed and flow control devices to control the stopping of the load. SMC's RHC series features a longer cushion design which is capable of stopping heavy or high speed loads while maintaining the simplicity of a standard air cushion cylinder. This enhanced cushion allows the kinetic distance, which results in the ability to absorb up to 23.8 ft-lb of energy and operate reliably at speeds up to 118 in/sec. Even with the improved performance of the RHC, cushion adjustment remains as simple as adjusting the cushion needle valve.


REC

REC

The transportation of delicate items often requires greater control of cylinder acceleration and deceleration than is afforded by traditional air cushions. For this reason, SMC has developed the REC sine cylinder. The term "sine cylinder" is derived from the shape of the velocity curve at both ends of stroke. This control is achieved with the addition of two grooves on each cushion spear which results in a more gradual initial acceleration or deceleration and smooth transition to or from full speed operation. To accomplish this type of motion with a traditional cylinder typically requires extensive external flow control. REC is a repairable basic cylinder.


MGZ

MGZ

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.
