A new family of guided-motion air cylinders offers extended load-carrying capabilities

A new family of guided-motion air cylinders offers extended load-carrying capabilities. Twin guide shafts provide precise nonrotating positioning. Features include choice of sleeve or ball bearings; four mounting methods; dowel pin holes on mounting surfaces provide accuracy; no lubrication required; and magnetic pistons are standard. The cylinders offer bores from 12 to 63 mm and strokes to 100 mm. Optional sensors adjust easily in linear slots in the housing. Ask for Catalog #FGM-10.
