Pneumatic Guided Cylinder - XLB | Parker NA

Pneumatic Guided Cylinder - XLB

XLB is a light weight base slide for medium heavy duty linear motion between supports. The max operating pressure is 100 psi (air). Bore sizes are 14, 19, 27, & 38mm. Through hole & four-sided T-slot mounting options are available.

    The XLB series guided cylinder provides precise, torque resistant linear motion in a very light weight, compact package. The XLB, or "base" version, is designed to span the work area and translate the load between two support points. Built into the tooling plate, an alignment coupler allows the piston rod to self-center. This extends cylinder life especially when the support shafts deflect under load. The housing is manufactured from anodized extruded aluminum, incorporating through holes and "T" slots for mounting flexibility. Supported by the main body are four pre-lubricated recirculating ball bearings and two precision ground support shafts. Optional composite bushings may be specified.

    Outboard wiper seals protect the bearings from contamination and retain lubrication. This ensures long life with reduced maintenance. A pre-lubricated SRM stainless steel air cylinder with a stainless steel piston rod provides thrust, while the support shafts and bearings provide positive load support for millions of non-lube, trouble-free cycles. Standard dowel pin holes provide precision mounting for the body and tool plate. On the XLB, "T" slots support optional stroke adjusters, shock absorbers and proximity sensors. One adjustment moves all three components in unison – eliminating multiple iterations during setup.
