Optimized Pneumatic Cylinders for Compact Machines


Duration:60 minutes


Compactness is becoming more important in machine design applications. In automation, pneumatic actuators are critical components that provide motion and positioning. Selecting the right pneumatic cylinder is not simply a matter of stroke, force and speed. Increasingly important is the optimization of required space, set-up time and effort in machine commissioning as well as price, availability and service life. It’s clear that there is much to consider. Register for the webinar and discover innovations that will fit perfectly into your business and increase your efficiency and competitiveness.

During this webinar you will learn:
  1. The pro’s and cons of ISO standard cylinders
  2. Space optimization trade-offs
  3. Developments in position sensing
  4. Reducing product complexity
