Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. Pneumatic cylinders are used to generate force and power linear motion on OEM equipment of all types. They can move product directly or move the components inside a machine that act on the product. They do this by pushing or pulling, lifting or lowering, rotating, or clamping. They can produce high force and a broad range of velocities, even stalling if needed without causing internal damage. They can be manufactured to tolerate adverse conditions and repetitive washdown. And they come in various designs to meet the requirements of different applications. What follows is a description the basic types and features of cylinders. The original industrial cylinder, and still the most widely used today, consists of a tube or barrel—the cylinder—closed by sealed end pieces to form the envelope. Inside is a sealed piston.
