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.
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.
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.
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.
