Origa rodless pneumatic cylinder and guide require less spaceParker-Origa is introducing a rodless pneumatic drive with an integrated guide, providing a compact, cost-effective, ready-to-run linear motion system. This unit further extends the Origa range of modular drives to suit an even broader scope of applications.

Integrated directly into the cylinder profile, the new Basic Guide cuts down considerably on the space required for assembling a conventional guide mechanism, and significantly reduces overall weight. Direct integration also provides a highly durable system that is able to handle heavy loads.

Four slide profiles ensure the Basic Guide fits precisely to the cylinder profile. The guide play is easily adjustable and can be readjusted at any time to ensure the guide carriage is always maintained in its correctly aligned position. This ease of readjustment helps to eliminate (or compensate for) the wear that can occur under extreme loading conditions or in the event of one-sided uneven loading.

Wear-resistant and durability tested composite plain bearings are used, and are already long-proven in the Slideline externally guided version. The service life is also prolonged by an integrated wiper system and integrated grease nipples. Standard 5mm T-slot magnetic switches can be fitted directly to the profile tube, without projecting edges.

As with all Parker-Origa cylinders, the Basic Guide has adjustable end-position cushioning and magnetic pistons, and includes end caps that can be rotated through 90 degrees. Parker-Origa's standard options are also available for the Basic Guide, including integrated directional control valves, single-side air connection, and Viton seals (for high speeds and temperatures). There is a special version with stick/slip-free operation for slow-running applications. A full range of accessories, including cover fastenings, intermediate supports and T-slot magnetic switches, complete the Basic Guide offering.
