Addressing the challenge of smaller machine design

Addressing the challenge of smaller machine design
One of the challenges faced by machine builders is the repeated request for smaller and more compact machines. In many cases this challenge is not too difficult to achieve but often major size reductions are restricted by the performance of the components used in its construction. SMC Pneumatics is very much aware of these issues, and its new Series CQU compact plate type cylinder meets this challenge, with both power and space saving performance.

The CQU range offers the best performance features of SMC's Series MU plate cylinder and Series CQ2 compact cylinders in one exceptionally small plate cylinder body. Thanks to a unique retaining ring, which eliminates the need for end caps, Series CQU is up to 15 percent shorter than the MU, 40 percent narrower than the CQ2 and offers a body mass reduction of up to 36 percent.
