SMC Pneumatics is offering the MGP cylinder series for customers experiencing actuator failures.

According to the company, some of the most common causes of actuator failures are misalignment or excessive loads being applied to the piston rod and the ingress of external contaminants such as dust, sand, flour or even weld spatter.

Despite its compact profile, the MGP is strong enough to handle heavy and offset loads; the MGPS variant can stop an object mass weighing just more than 1,900kg.

The cylinder can provide the accuracy needed for applications where precision is essential, such as in pick-and-place operations involving small workpieces.

The MGP comes in bore sizes from 12mm to 100mm, stroke lengths from 10mm to 400mm (intermediate options can be made to order), four different mounting options to facilitate positioning, piping available from two directions and two auto-switch mounting options.

Customers can also choose from slide bearing or ball bushing and an end-lock option to hold the cylinder’s home position even if the air supply is cut off.

The MGP features on option of a coil scraper or heavy-duty scraper to help prevent failures due to the adhesion and ingress of contaminants such as dust, flour, frost and weld spatter.

Air cushioning is included as standard, providing almost three times the kinetic energy absorption of the rubber bumpers in other cylinders, according to SMC.
