SMC cylinder series features new style of air cushions

SMC Corporation of America,  the world's largest manufacturer of pneumatic automation products has released the RLQ series, a compact cylinder with a lock and air cushion.   This cylinder series integrates a locking mechanism and a unique new style of air cushions while maintaining a short overall length.  Typical applications include drop prevention, workpiece clamping, and emergency stopping. The RLQ series is available in four bore sizes: 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, and 63mm.
By using the same extrusion as the cylinder itself, the lock unit portion of the cylinder has a simple design without any unnecessary projections.  Also, the simple one-way lock mechanism is lightweight and compact, allowing installation in tight spaces.  With a unique construction that does not require a cushion ring, the RLQ's air cushion design is also compact, reducing the overall length of the cylinder when compared to traditional air cushion designs.
