Pneumatic cylinder(s) (sometimes known as air cylinders) are switch use the power of compressed gas to produce a force in a reciprocating linear motion.Like hydraulic cylinders, something forces a piston to move in the desired direction. The piston is a disc or cylinder, and the piston rod transfers the force it develops to the object to be moved. Engineers sometimes prefer to use pneumatics because they are quieter, cleaner, and do not require large amounts of space for fluid storage.Because the operating fluid is a gas, leakage from a pneumatic cylinder will not drip out and contaminate the surroundings, making pneumatics more desirable where cleanliness is a requirement. For example, in the mechanical puppets of the Disney Tiki Room, pneumatics is used to prevent fluid from dripping onto people below the puppets.
Compressed air is hot, wet, and dirty. Air filters clean contaminants from compressed air to insure proper, consistent operation and to reduce wear on mechanical parts.

In pilot operated valves, the plunger opens up the pilot opening while built-up pressure causes the valve to open and close. Although piloted valves require less electrical energy to operate, they usually need to maintain full power in order to remain in an open state, and they perform at a slower rate than direct acting solenoids. Direct acting solenoid valves only need full power when opening the valve, as they can hold their open position even when operating on low power.
The Push - In One Touch Fittings series pneumatic piping joints excelling in quick fitting, accurate jointing and compact design are suited to the pneumatic systems necessary for automation and labor saving. The tube can be fitted and detached easily, so that workability is remarkably improved. Pressure loss is reduced. A large volume of compressed air can be fed with least pressure loss without air leak. Moreover the joints have a compact design. Thus the joints will satisfy strict user's demands.
