SMC has introduced 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 special 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.
