Guide Cylinder

Guided cylinders utilize guide rods mounted parallel to the piston rod to provide stable, non-rotating, high side load performance.  SMC offers dual rod, heavy duty, and precision actuator models.  Like rodless cylinders, SMC guide rod cylinders reduce rod bending, piston bending, and uneven seal wear.  Low profile guided actuator series are available for restrictive space limitations.

The 25A- series variations are designed using material compatible with secondary battery applications and are able to be used in low dew point environments.  The variations eliminate copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) material where possible, making them compatible with secondary battery manufacturing for electronics, automotive, and other vehicle types.
