b'MK SeriesThe Pneumatic Clamping Element MKS DesignSpecial characteristics:Compact designHigh clamping forcesContact section Exact positioningAdapting plate Strong axial and horizontal rigidityApplication scenarios for MK: Positioning of axisFixing of vertical axisBase module Positioning of lifting devicesWedge slide gear Clamping of machine tablesVariations:Depending on the height of the carriage, an additional adapting plate must be ordered (see table).Connecting options:The MK/MKS series have air connections on both sides as part of their standard equipment. This means that the air Piston connection and the air release filter can be moved over to the opposite side.Linear guideHigher supporting forces with PLUS connection (MKS):By using a 5/2 (overflow-free) or 5/3 valve it is possible to support the spring power with pneumatic pressure.
