MLGC, Compact External Guide Cylinder with Fine Lock

MLGC, Compact External Guide Cylinder with Fine Lock Show Description

The MLGC integrates a round body, fine locking cylinder for its power source with external guide rods to combine for a compact, light weight unit. Its fine lock mechanism can lock at mid-stroke, either in the extend or retract stroke cycle. The fine lock mechanism can be activated either by a spring force, as a drop prevention measure when air pressure is lost, or actived pneumatically with pressurized air to lock the rod position into place for holidng a work piece. Both spring and pneumatic locking mechanism can be used in one unit. It is designed with air cushions at the end of stroke for maximum kinetic energy absorption. The (L) high precision ball bushing allows for smooth operation that ensures stable travel resistance, suitable for pushing and lifting applications. The (M) carbon steel alloy slide bearing provides lateral stability protecting it from side load impacts, suitable for stopping applications.
