Longer stroke, smaller footprint and high-load and side-load capabilities are all special advantages of rodless pneumatic cylinders. Now IMI Norgren MC Series magnetically coupled rodless cylinders deliver the extra benefits of greater design flexibility and easier application-specific customization.
The cylinder’s stainless steel tube and machined components are independent of each other, with the carriage and piston synced by powerful magnets. This design allows more varied profiles and specialized profiles to meet requirements for applications like cutting, opening doors, transferring between conveyors, or feeding materials into machinery. An unguided version has an especially slim profile. IMI Norgren MC cylinders even offer oil service seals for hydraulic applications.
