Rodless cylinder is a good choice in many mechanical designs. The outer bracket of this type of cylinder can slide back and forth along the cylinder. This unique design makes the rodless cylinder suitable for applications requiring long stroke and high torque loads.
When you decide to use the rodless single acting cylinder in mechanical design, you must consider the following factors to ensure that the rodless tailgate cylinder can operate effectively in the mechanical structure.
How Much Space Is Available?
The moving parts in the machine must have enough space to operate freely. Because there is no connecting rod inside the rodless magnetic cylinder, there is no need to extend the connecting rod out of the cylinder during operation, so it can effectively save space. In addition, when designing the mechanical structure, there should be enough space to ensure the safety of operators. If space is sufficient, additional space should be left to ensure easy maintenance.
How Much Force Will Be Required?
The size of the bore and the amount of PSI used determine the force generated by the rodless pneumatic cylinder. In addition, you also need to know the weight of the load. If the moving load is externally guided and supported, the sliding friction coefficient also helps to determine the amount of force required. For example, if the weight of a horizontal load is 200 pounds and the sliding friction coefficient is 0.2, 40 pound-force is required to move the load. You can choose a bore size that will produce a minimum of 40 pound-force. If the load is vertical, you need a rodless mini air cylinder that can produce 200 pound-force. For magnetically coupled cylinders, you also need to check the magnet decoupling rating and avoid exceeding it.
What Speed Does The Cylinder Need To Run At?
In order to obtain the highest production efficiency, the service life of rodless compressed air cylinder and the ability to control operation must be considered. The port size, flow control valve, oil pipe or hose size and air pressure will affect the speed of the cylinder. You also need to make sure that the cylinder can fully suppress the force when decelerating. Therefore, you need to check the performance of the buffer pad inside the rodless double acting cylinder and determine whether an external buffer shock absorber needs to be installed.
How Much Air Will Be Consumed?
The air consumed depends on the volume that the piston has moved in the rodless air cylinder and the volume that has not yet moved.
What Will The Operating Environment Look Like?
Dust, extreme temperature, humidity and regular maintenance will directly affect your choice of cylinder model and cylinder material. The weather resistance of different materials is different. You need to select the rodless piston cylinder according to the operating environment.
Do You Need Specialized Seals?
If your rodless cylinder needs to work in a very cold or hot environment, or the environment contains corrosive chemicals, it is recommended to use a special seal instead of the standard seal to ensure the best performance of the rodless cylinder.
