As a pneumatic accessory, the main function of the cylinder is to guide the piston for linear reciprocating motion and to convert the pressure energy of compressed air into mechanical energy. Because it is essential in industrial equipment, industrial manufacturers are always choosing the best air cylinders to keep their machines running well. High-quality compact cylinders are of great interest to industrial machinery manufacturers because of their diverse advantages. These short-stroke cylinders are designed to fit into tight spaces and offer a variety of mounting options. One of the benefits of choosing a compact cylinder is effective motion in a small footprint.
Vilop's CQ2 compact pneumatic cylinder meets the needs of flexible movements of industrial production machines, as it is available in 15 bore sizes ranging from 12mm to 100mm and can be adapted to a wide variety of industrial production machines. This professional cylinder is equipped with a mounting device on all four surfaces, which allows a convenient linkage to magnetic switches. The CQ2 series compact cylinder is very compact and lightweight, providing excellent performance in small movements. Its standard male or female piston rod thread and 42 standard options make it one of the most versatile cylinder series on the market.
For best results, professional pneumatic designers recommend the correct mounting method to operate a high-quality compressor cylinder. The following are some of the common mounting methods for cylinders.
The centerline mounting method is based on the centerline and this option provides the best support for your pneumatic air cylinder. The other mounting method is called a non-centerline mount. While this mounting operation is usually robust, this option may not be as rigid as other mounting types. This is because the mounting plane does not pass through the centerline of the cylinder, creating a bending moment around the mounting point. In many applications, the cylinder must pivot through the arc. Most pivot mounts are used in this case. If your application requires anti-rotation, you have several mounting options to choose from. In a double-acting single rod design, you can insert two guide pins through the piston head to prevent the rod from rotating at an angle of ±1°. Another option is to attach an external guide block to the piston rod. One or two steel guide shafts, attached to the guide block, prevent rotation < 0.8°.
Choosing the type of compressed air cylinder mounting depends first and foremost on whether the motion is linear or rotating the crank arm. For linear motion along a straight line, including pushing, pulling, or lifting, choose a rigid mount. For motion that pivots the crank arm at a position where the cylinder needs to pivot, choose a flexible mount. Another consideration is the location of the cylinder support, for example, directly below the centerline, at the pivot point, or using a stand. In centerline mounting, the mounting plane is the centerline of the cylinder. In a non-centerline installation, the plane does not pass through the centerline of the pneumatic air cylinder, which creates a bending moment around the mounting point. Proper air compressor cylinder mounting design can reduce wear and extend service life. So if you don't understand how to choose a mounting technique, take the advice of a professional cylinder designer.
