Understanding the Basics of Single Acting Pneumatic Cylinders: A Comprehensive Guide

Single Acting Pneumatic Cylinder work on the principle of pressure difference. When compressed air is supplied to the cylinder through a control valve, it enters the cylinder chamber and pushes the piston, which generates linear motion. In push-type single-acting pneumatic cylinders, the piston rod extends out of the cylinder when air pressure is applied. When the air supply is cut off, the piston is returned to its original position by a spring.
