Pneumatic Systems produce a linear motion by use of Compressed Air in a chamber of a pneumatic cylinder. It is very similar to a Hydraulic System.

The flow of Compressed Air is usually regulated inside the pneumatic cylinder for the forward and back ward motion of the Piston by using either electrically operated solenoid valves.

The flow of the compressed air can also be manually regulated by moving the regulation spool using a manual handle. The flow rate of compressed air regulates the speed of the piston movement.


Pneumatic Systems are used in various equipment where a proportional or digital movement of a piston is required. These are preferred over Hydraulics when a very clean environment is necessary such as food processing industry etc. Pneumatic systems cannot be used for very heavy applications due to their load bearing capacity limitation
