What is the purpose of compact cylinders and what applications do they suit?

Modern manufacturing facilities are often crammed full of essential production equipment, which often means that space is at an absolute premium. However, that needn’t be an impediment to productivity. Not when Mindman’s range of compact pneumatic cylinders are able to deliver optimal performance from a space-saving and lightweight envelope.

What are compact pneumatic cylinders?

Compact pneumatic cylinders are used in applications where space is distinctly limited. Compact cylinders that adhere to the ISO 21287 standard are single rod compact pneumatic cylinders with a maximum working pressure of up to 10 bar (1000 k Pa) and bore sizes from 20 mm to 100 mm. Compact cylinders feature a piston rod configuration and function either as single-acting or double-acting cylinders.

Where are compact pneumatic cylinders used?

For single-acting cylinders, that may include everything from conveyors to material handling equipment and printing presses. Whilst double-acting cylinders are commonly used in assembling, clamping and positioning applications to name but a few.
