Pneumatic Cylinder Types and Use

March 11, 2022
Take a closer look at these versatile workhorses.

Pneumatic cylinders use compressed air to produce reciprocating linear motions. The piston in a double-acting cylinder is moved in and out by compressed air, while the single-acting cylinder piston is forced one way by compressed air and retracted or extended by a spring.

Also known as air cylinders, pneumatic cylinders are highly versatile; they are used in various industries that require linear motion, such as pick-and-place applications.
