Duramaster Bucks the “Throw-Away Mentality”

How many times have you lamented the trend toward ever more short-cuts and ever-shorter product life for both consumer and industrial products? Sadly, too many of us have resigned ourselves to this. We buy products knowing they will fail in a short time, but feel we have no alternative, at least not at a...

Application of a Duramaster NFPA Rod Cylinder on a Manipulator

The material handling industry is constantly developing end effectors and manipulators for gripping, lifting and rotating equipment. Duramaster NFPA Rod cylinders can do the job with such options as pivot mounting and low friction service. If the rod cylinder will be used for opening and closing a gripper, low friction service is probably not...

Want A Top Of The Line NFPA Cylinder?

Look No Further With Duramaster Cylinders! There are many NFPA cylinder manufacturers that produce the same cylinder, with the same technical specs….however there can be many differences in the materials that each of the NFPA cylinder manufacturers use in their product. Whether made in the USA or especially product coming from overseas, know that...

How Do You Size Hydraulic and Pneumatic NFPA Cylinders?

Why Should You Choose Duramaster NFPA Cylinders? When sizing hydraulic and pneumatic NFPA cylinders, it is fairly straightforward to calculate how much force an air cylinder of a particular bore size will produce. Just multiply the effective area of the piston (in square inches) by the supply pressure (in pounds per square inch) and...

Pnuematic Cylinders vs Hydraulic Cylinders, Which To Choose?

The choice of whether to run our pnuematic cylinders hydraulically or pnuematically depends on the application. The operation of pnuematic cylinders tends to allow for faster motion, whereas hydraulic operation tends to allow for a very smooth and consistent motion, albeit at somewhat slower speeds. The service of pnuematic cylinders also has the advantage...

Take A Ride On Pneumatic Air Cylinders In Virtual Reality!

Just when you think of it all, pneumatic air cylinders finds it way into virtual reality. According to Hydraulics and Pneumatics, there are new ideas integrating pneumatic air cylinders with the gaming world Article from Hydraulics and Pneumatics. Their simulation studies with engineers and a unique company producing these air cylinders, really can make...

What Is A Pneumatic System vs. Hydraulic?

A pneumatic system operates under the same principles as a hydraulic system, however a pneumatic system utilizes a gas rather than a liquid. Compressed air is generally used, although nitrogen or other inert gasses can also be utilized for certain applications. With pneumatics, free air is typically drawn into a compressor where it is...
