Pneumatic Cylinders

Pneumatic Cylinders

Pneumatic cylinder (air cylinder) is a component that converts pneumatic energy to linear motion and is the most commonly used in pneumatic actuators.
This cylinder can easily convert pressure energy to linear motion. Since using the air which is fluid with compressibility, accurate speed control and position control is slightly difficult, and it also has a demerit of easily being affected by load.

Pneumatic Valves

Pneumatic Valves

Pneumatic valve (directional control valve) switches the flowing direction (flow path) of supplied air pressure to cylinder or other actuators in the pneumatic circuit.
Directional control valves are briefly classified into switching valve, non-return valve, check valve and shuttle valve.

CKD Delivers Mini Desktop Direct Drive Actuator

Responding to the market demand for a small, easy to use desktop direct drive actuator, CKD has added the ABSODEX Mini to its existing AX6000M Series
actuators. The ABSODEX Mini saves space with its minimal and compact design. Measuring just 3 inches tall and less than 2 inches wide, the ABSODEX Mini
performs at less than 3 pounds.


The ABSODEX Mini delivers:
• Productivity improvements
• Work stabilization
• Reduced equipment design time
• Improved equipment reuse
• Miniaturization of existing equipment

CKD High Durability Gas Valve Increases Durability by 900%

CKD introduces the AGD-R Series high durability gas valves. The AGD-R Series high durability gas valves are guaranteed for 10 million times of use, but typically exceed 30 million times of use. CKD high durability valves will perform 900% to 2900% more times of use than conventional models that are guaranteed only 1 million times of use.
