Ideal Cushioning of Aluminum Air Cylinders Reduces Cycle Times
Bosch Rexroth Pneumatics has developed the concept and application of Ideal Cushioning for optimizing air cylinders to increase productivity. When using the Rexroth ISO/VDMA pneumatic cylinder line, cushions can be adjusted “ideally” to achieve reduced cycle times, reduced noise and vibration, and increased cylinder life. Ideal Cushioning means that there is no end of stroke bounce, i.e. the direction of travel of the piston is the same throughout the entire cushioning sequence, and that its velocity is exactly zero when it reaches the end of its travel.
