MKP linear module integrates the power of a rodless cylinder drive with the travel accuracy of a linear bearing guide. The system features an oval piston design, flexible tension belt, and sealed cylinder chamber. Due to the integral STAR ball rail system, the MKP linear module also affords high travel speeds while maintaining precision and high load capacities. Catalog provides a product diagram, technical data, calculations, and dimension drawings. Mounting information is also provided.
