Aventics’ new “The ABC’s of Pneumatic Cylinder Cushioning” manual provides instructions on how to use its “Ideal Cushioning” products, helping OEMs find the simplest and most effective methods to adjust pneumatic-cylinder cushions. Among the benefits engineers can expect from Ideal Cushioning products are reduction of cycle times, vibration, and noise.
The company claims its Ideal Cushioning products ensure there’s minimal bouncing and noise of the end-cover contact at the end of the piston stroke. By following the methods outlined in the manual, OEMs should see increased machine productivity.
The cushioning products are aimed at cylinders such as Aventics’ RTC rodless models and PRA/TRB/ICL ISO 15552 cylinders. Both enable precise pneumatic-cushion adjustment and feature elastic elements for impact cushioning.
