It features a lightweight aluminum base that is hard anodized and a carriage made from Ampco 18 aluminum-bronze. Standard mounting holes on the slide carriage and endplate make it easy to attach the mechanism being moved and the unit's base offers four holes for mounting. Stroke adjustments and locks are standard on end of extend and retract of stroke.

The Mini-Linear Actuator is part of a new product line that offers flexible configurations. The Pneumatically actuated mini slides have two bore sizes .5 and also a .75 inch available in .5, 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 inch strokes. Optional switch kits allow the use of inductive proximity switches for easy interfacing to electrical controls.

AGI supplies a complete range of sophisticated automation products that include, parallel grippers, rotary actuators, thrusters, linear actuator slides, mini slides, tool changers, overload devices. Available in imperial and metric versions for flexibility of design for a world market.
