Pneumatic cylinders use the force of compressed air against a moving piston to create mechanical movement. Pneumatic cylinders are specified depending on the mass of the load being moved, the distance it is to be moved over, and the time required to move the load. Cylinders can be single-acting or double-acting. In single-acting cylinders the air forces the piston against a spring which will return the cylinder to its default position when the air is removed. In double-acting cylinders, air is used to push the piston one way, and to return the cylinder to its default position, air is applied on the opposite side of the piston while on the original side, the air is allowed to exhaust.
