The DGC pneumatic linear drive, available from Festo , has set a new standard for precision, reliable guidance and high load capacity.
Available in piston diameters from 8mm to 63mm, these new rodless linear drives can be configured with plain bearings or recirculating ball bearing guides and with the option of shock absorbers and a second slide for particularly heavy loads.
A common feature across the entire range is improved guidance quality, higher characteristic load values and torque capacity.
The DGC pneumatic linear drives can also be delivered to the customers’ door faster than before as bore sizes 18, 25, 32 and 40mm are now assembled in Australia. In these sizes, Festo can now despatch the ‘made to order’ DGC drive within three working days.
Create more compact, higher performance machines due to the DGC’s minimised installation space requirements and proximity sensors integrated into the cylinder profiles.
The DGC actuators also employ a sealing strip, which is mechanically clipped into the extrusion, which ensures extremely low air leakage even over long strokes.
Faster installation is made possible because the end-position adjustment, sensor, mounting, air connections and pneumatic end position cushioning are all accessible from the same side. Once again, Festo set the standard for quality in pneumatic linear drives.
