A compact air cylinder generally refers to a cylinder with a simplified structure and a reduced size. In daily life, the compact pneumatic cylinder is often used in many applications. It not only provides a lot of conveniences for people, but also increases the productivity. This article will take you to know more about the knowledge of compact cylinder parts.
Introduction of compact air cylinders
We know that the compact cylinder equipment is a cylindrical metal part that guides the piston to reciprocate linearly in the cylinder. And air in the engine cylinder can converts thermal energy into mechanical energy through expansion. So the gas is compressed by the piston in the compressor cylinder to increase the pressure. Usually the casings of turbines, rotary piston engines etc. are also commonly referred to as "cylinders". Its application fields is very widely, including printing such as tension control, semiconductors such as spot welding machine, chip grinding etc., automation control, robots and so on. Now let us get to know the characteristics of small air cylinder.
The characteristics of compact cylinder
Seen from the name, we can know that the compact cylinder device has the characteristics of compact structure, and it has small size, which is suitable for the needs of increasingly miniaturized machines, and it is easy to install. For example, the filter is designed with a semi-automatic water discharge device, which can automatically drain sewage when the main engine stops air, or it can be drained manually. The pressure reducing valve is sensitive, stable and reliable. The oil volume of the lubricator is adjustable, which is suitable for lubrication in different working conditions. So, it can be used in combination or individual applications, and it is easy to disassemble and assemble. Nowadays, there are many types of compact cylinders, and the varieties and specifications can meet the different needs of users.
Types of compact cylinders
Single-acting cylinder: One end of the single-acting cylinder is connected to a piston rod, and it is driven by compressed air from the side of the piston. When the cylinder moves forward, the driving force will push the piston to extend and return by spring or its own weight. In this process, the driving force will be partially offset by the spring. Generally, the stroke of the single-acting cylinder cannot be too long.
Double-acting cylinder: alternately supply air from both sides of the piston, and output force in one or two directions.
Diaphragm air cylinder: replace the piston with a diaphragm, and the output force in only one direction, and return by a spring. Its sealing performance is good, but the stroke is short.
Rodless air cylinder: it is the general term for cylinders without a piston rod. There are two types, including magnetic cylinders and cable cylinders. The reciprocating cylinder is called a swing cylinder. The inner cavity is divided into two by vanes, and air is alternately supplied to the two cavities. The output shaft makes a swing motion, and the swing angle is less than 280°.
