    How to Choose the Correct Rodless Cylinder for your Mechanical Application

    Posted by Troy Branham on May 25 ,2017

    Pneumatic cylinders are useful in a wide range of industrial applications. A rodless cylinder, in particular, offers special advantages for mechanical design, because it is shorter and entirely enclosed. Rodless cylinders save space without sacrificing performance, they can be mounted in any plane, and they can be grouped to accommodate multi-axis design.

    Key Considerations for Applying Pneumatic Rodless Cylinders to Your Mechanical Design

    Posted by Troy Branham on Feb 1 ,2017

    In a recent blog article, we listed some questions you should ask when you want to use pneumatic rod cylinders in your mechanical design. For many applications, however, rodless cylinders are a better choice. With this type of pneumatic cylinder, the external carriage itself slides back and forth along the cylinder body, rather than an external rod extending and retracting. This design is particularly useful for applications that require long strokes or high moment loads, thanks to the shorter, enclosed and self-guided configuration.
