Double Acting Cylinder
This is a standard cylinder that produces reciprocating motion. It is available in single and double rod types. Fig. 10.1 shows the single rod cylinder. This cylinder is provided with a cushion mechanism, which uses a cushion sleeve to close the fluid return port as the piston rod retracts. Therefore, the fluid is discharged through a restrictor located in parallel with the return port, resulting in a higher piston back pressure and a slower piston speed.
