MGP Series

Characteristics defining the MGP are the dual guide rods and single bore in a compact body. Guide rods offer two primary advantages -- non-rotation and dramatic lateral load resistance. A choice of either solid slide bearings or ball bushing bearings for guide rod support depends on the application. For example, the low-friction ball bushing bearings yield smooth operation under load and especially at high speeds. Slide bearings offer better resistance to eccentric and impact loads, such as when using the MGP as a conveyor stopper. The large tooling plate is ideal for pushing or lifting larger objects, or attaching custom tooling in a stable, secure manner.

Made-to-Order Variations:

  • Heat resistance up to 150°C / 302°F
  • Smooth operation at low speeds
  • Heavy duty or coil scrapers for invasive environments
  • Adjustable stroke
  • Shock absorber
  • Water resistance or stainless steel materials
  • Clean room
  • More!

Body Upgrades for Improved Performance:

  • End Lock type - holds home position even if air supply is removed
  • Air Cushion type - Absorbs almost 3X kinetic energy of bumpers with less noise, vibration
  • Heavy Duty type - oversized guide rods increase lateral, eccentric, and impact load
  • High Precision Ball Bushing Bearing type - offers ±0.01° non-rotating accuracy
