The new cylinders (MACQ series) are constructed with an extruded aluminum body. Double-acting, available in ten different bore sizes and a wide range of standard stroke lengths, the new cylinders can also be obtained with a magnetic piston to enhance position sensing.
The new compact line is suited for a broad range of general automation processes, providing flexibility in space-sensitive machine design applications. The low-cost line is also globally interchangeable with industry alternatives, allowing for quick drop-in replacement parts.
“The MACQ compact cylinders are a logical extension of the full line of rotary actuators, air preparation equipment, solenoid valves and extruded thrusters that comprise our MFD product series,” said Tom Kane, General Manager for Mead Fluid Dynamics.
