Key Features

  • Double-acting air (pneumatic) cylinder with two air ports for pushing and pulling the piston rod in both directions
  • Miniature compact body with one piston rod, dual guide rods, and guide plate for non-rotating stability
  • Aluminum for resistance to corrosion and tarnishing with a stainless-steel piston rod
  • Top- or bottom-mounting options for attaching cylinder body to rigid surfaces
  • Switch ready with two magnet sensors installed for connecting to electrical circuits for automation

Product Description

This SMC double-acting MGJ Series air cylinder has a miniature compact body and comes "switch ready" for connecting to mechanical proximity and limit switches for precise timing in automated applications. The air cylinder (also called a pneumatic cylinder) has two guide rods that run parallel to the single piston rod for non-rotating accuracy of +/-0.1 degree, and an attached plate enables direct mounting of loads for lifting and lowering. Constructed in aluminum to resist corrosion and tarnishing, the double-acting air cylinder uses airflow through two air ports on opposite ends of the cylinder tube to push out and retract the piston rod to produce continued movement. The pneumatic cylinder comes standard with rubber bumper cushioning inside the cylinder barrel to absorb kinetic energy and to dampen the sound of the piston striking the end caps, and it has nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) seals to contain air and protect the barrel and piston rod. This non-repairable air cylinder is "switch ready" with two magnet sensors installed for connecting to electrical circuits for pneumatic automation. It has both top and bottom mounting for attaching to rigid surfaces with screws (not included), a maximum pressure of 102 pounds per square inch (psi), and an operating temperature range of 14 to 140 degrees F. This miniature air cylinder is suitable for linear applications in tight spaces, and it is capable of handling high side loads.

Pneumatic actuators fall into two classes: linear and rotary. Linear actuators move objects in straight lines, while rotary actuators turn objects, or rotate them in varying directions. Air cylinders (also called pneumatic cylinders), the most common type of linear actuators, use pressurized air to pull and push piston rods in and out of cylinder barrels. This motion moves mechanisms connected to the rods, or (for detached items) directs or blocks travel using rod-attached plates. Air cylinders execute pushing, pulling, lifting, lowering, pressing, and stopping functions, and they come in several different body types, including round, compact, tie-rod, guided, slide, and clamp. Pneumatic cylinders can be either single acting, with one compressed air port to push the rod in a single direction and a spring to return the rod, or double acting, with two compressed air ports on opposite ends of the cylinder to both extend and retract the rod. For quieter piston operation, air cylinders can come with cushioning in one or both ends of their barrels. Several mounting styles are available both for attaching the air cylinder ends to moving components in a pneumatic system and for mounting to rigid surfaces. Air cylinders are used in industrialized automation tasks in automotive, food processing, material handling, and robotics applications, among others.
