Koganei mini guide sliders are compact, high-precision actuators. The MGA units reportedly offer a smaller physical size as compared to competitive units with the same bore and stroke. And they are more rigid to torque moments in roll, pitch and yaw.
The products feature high-precision mounting with running parallelism of 0.005 mm and mounting parallelism of 0.03 mm. That’s due to a 4-point-contact type linear guide that stands up to variable and complex loads. It uses a finite track type with bearing cage, preloaded to reduce play.
Construction of the environmentally friendly RoHS compliant products includes wear-resistant aluminum alloy or stainless-steel plates, and a stainless table and body. Ports in the symmetrical construction permit left or right piping options.
They come in nine bore sizes, including the smallest 4.5 mm to the new 25 and 32-mm bore units. Standard strokes range from 5 to 150 mm, depending on the size. The line include the standard MGA, as well as versions with a buffer, end keep, shock absorber or rear piping; and extended/retracted side stroke adjusting cylinders, clean-system cylinders, and side-mounted options. The company also offers position stroke sensors and linear magnetic sensor controllers to complement the MGA.
