These guide cylinders are equipped with two integrated guides, that can accept lateral forces and allow repeatable positioning of the front plate. Depending on the travel speeds and mechanical loading, a choice can be made between ball bushing or slide bearing guide. The guided cylinders are equipped with a magnetic piston, which enables contactless scanning of the cylinder position using cylinder switches. Tip: The maximum permissible transverse load increases significantly due to design reasons with ball guided cylinders from a piston diameter of 32 mm and up and a stroke of 75 mm. The main mounting dimensions of the SGM series are identical with those of the SMC cylinder series MGPM.
