Cylinder diameter (mm)
Tameson offers a wide range of pneumatic cylinders. Common pneumatic cylinders follow ISO standards, so that they are globally accepted and can replace other brands using the same standards. The two most common types are ISO 15552 for profile cylinders with diameters of 32-320 mm and ISO 6432 for round cylinders (mini cylinders) with diameters of 8-25 mm. However, we also carry air cylinders for specialized usage that don’t fall under an ISO standard.
Air cylinders are either single-acting (spring return or spring extent) or double-acting. Single-acting cylinders require compressed to either extend or return the piston and the spring force is in the opposite direction. In a double-acting cylinder, compressed air is used for both the extension and retraction of the rod depending on where the high pressure is. Double acting cylinders are most commonly used. With multiple different configurations of rod diameter, stroke length, force in/out, and pressure ranges there is a pneumatic cylinder for almost any application requiring linear motion. We also have options with a magnetic piston for position feedback capabilities as well as adjustable damping for added control of cushioning. Tameson’s wide range of pneumatic cylinders allow you to find a product to meet almost any application requirements and we ensure they are made from high quality material, tested, calibrated, and come to you at a competitive price.
