Pneumatic cylinder also known as air cylinder or ben gas is a device in the compressed air system. It plays the role of converting the energy source of compressed air into kinetic energy to perform the impact of closing, opening, pulling, pushing, pressing ... depending on the actual work.
Compared with hydraulic cylinder, customers prefer to use air cylinder Because of the cleanliness, smooth operation and less space for oil storage.
Pneumatic cylinder is composed of many parts such as: ty, barrel, cylinder body, air inlet, air outlet, seal ... All the details are processed according to standards and often use aluminum, steel, stainless steel for fabrication, making the cylinder highly durable, sturdy, less corrosive, and less oxidized.
Pneumatic cylinder Operated by the mechanism: After being activated, compressed air is brought into the cylinder through the air pipe. The amount of compressed air gradually increases until the space inside the cylinder is filled, when the piston must move in a forward and backward fashion and the drive drives the external gear. Compressed air will pass through the air outlet and discharge to the outside environment, ending a cycle of operation. This process will continue until the air inlet is cut off.
Advantages of pneumatic cylinder it is completely clean compressed air, fast-acting, convenient, compact compressed air supply and storage, easy to translational movement, flexible installation and cheap price.
However, pneumatic cylinder There are also disadvantages such as: The ability to generate power is not great, it is difficult to control the cylinder accurately and create noise when operating.
Demand about pneumatic cylinder increasingly high, so SMC has researched and manufactured more diverse types of cylinders with more diversified designs, materials, impact styles and sizes. Cylinder classification is also an easy way to select, suitable for the application of each business.
