The new style MGP has shorter guide rods and thinner plates, allowing up to 17% weight reduction over the original MGP. This series is designed for high side load applications found in material handling, lifting and grading. The cylinder utilizes a compact design by integrating the cylinder body as part of the guide body. As the stroke length increases, the bearing length also increases, thus improving the load carrying capacity of the cylinder. The MGP offers higher load capacity, longer stroke, two port locations, switch mounting grooves on both sides, and more versatile T-slot mounting than the MGQ series.

  • Weight reduced by up to 24% by shortening the guide rod and changing the plate thickness
  • Realized space saving
    Reduced space required for cylinder installation by shortening the guide rod by up to 22mm
  • Circular auto switch and magnetic field resistant auto switch do not occupy space and can be installed directly attachable
