Compact Guided Cylinder series 90-MGP and 91-MGP are designed for high side load applications found in material handling, lifting and stopping. 90-MGP is made from materials compatible with secondary battery manufacturing. 91-MGP includes a "Lub-retainer" and is compatible with low dew point (40°C) applications. 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.
