Industry Information

Pneumatic Cylinders

Pneumatic cylinders, also known as pneumatic air cylinders or air cylinders, are devices that change the power exerted by compressed air into mechanical energy. This energy is then harnessed to generate rotary or linear motion in pneumatic systems. Generally, these systems exist for one of two reasons. They either, one: open and close, lift and push and pull doors in material handling and material processing applications, or, two: position, hold and remove pieces or materials for manufacturing.

The basic configuration of pneumatic cylinders is one that consists of a piston, a piston rod, a cylinder barrel and end covers. The shape of the cylinder body, or housing, itself may be one of any number of common styles, which include: twin-rod cylinder, rodless, tie-rod, miniature/microcylinder, compact, rectangular, multiple bore, pancake, clean profile and smooth body. Typically, these parts are made either of steel, stainless steel, nickel-plated brass or aluminum. To work, compressed air, controlled by valves, is sent into the cylinder, where it forces the piston to move through the length of the cylinder. Once it reaches the end of the cylinder, the piston is pushed back into its original position either by a spring or additional compressed air. To assist in these operations, specifically by increasing their production of linear energy, pneumatic cylinders can be joined with tubing, pipes or hoses.

There are a variety of different pneumatic cylinder types, including impact cylinders, rotary cylinders, opposed-thrust cylinders, cushion end cylinders, tandem cylinders, telescopic cylinders and multiple-position cylinders. The most common types of cylinders, though, are single acting cylinders and double acting cylinders. The difference between the two is, in short, that a single acting cylinder can direct motion in one direction only, while a double acting cylinder can direct motion in two directions. Single acting cylinders use air pressure one side to generate force and motion and return the piston using a spring that activates after pressure release. They use about half the energy required to power double acting cylinders, which have air lines running at both ends in order to provide compressed air-inspired motion in multiple directions.

Pneumatic cylinders are typically available in sizes ranging from approximately 2.5 mm (0.10 in) and 1,000 mm (39 in). In addition to type and size, they are ordered according to their air consumption, speed and mounting configuration, or how they are attached to adjacent machinery. For guidance, customers should seek out experienced manufacturers, who will take into consideration variables like load levels, application location, projected temperatures and humidity and intended stroke lengths. Provided they make the right feature selections for their application, users will find that pneumatic cylinders are inexpensive and accessible, easily installed and environmentally friendly.
