Locking – MLGPThe MGP is designed for high side load applications found in material handling, lifting and stopping. The cylinder utilizes an ultra-compact design by incorporating the cylinder body as part of the guide body. As the stroke length increases, so does the bearing length, thus enhancing the cylinder's load bearing capacity. Conventional designed guided cylinders have a set bearing length resulting in dramatic decreases in side load capacity as stroke lengths increase. The MGP is the latest generation of guided cylinders and offers higher load capability, longer strokes, 2 port locations, switch mounting grooves on two sides, and a more versatile T-slot mounting than the MGQ series. Order made options for this series include adjustable air cushions, heavy duty guide rods, copper free, high temperature, and low speed.
The MLGP* - B/F is a compact body, locking actuator integrated with internal guide shafts to isolate the load bearing from the movement of the actuator's rod and seals. The locking mechanism can be specified for either the extension side (F) or the retraction side (B) of the stroke. The brake spring, locking mechanism will engage when air pressure is lost for drop prevention applications and can be released by reintroducing air pressure or via a manual process. 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.
