When a design engineer needs to reduce the weight of a cylinder assembly, one of the first thoughts is to use a lighter cylinder material. Polygon Co.’s composite cylinders are lower in weight than aluminum and are similar to magnesium.
Polygon Co. has announced their new pneumatic cylinder known as Constrained Tube Technology. CTT is a complete pneumatic system that allows the composite tube to be fitted within the confines of a thin-walled outer host.
A thorough machine risk assessment should focus, at least initially, on the actuators, whether they are cylinders, air motors, air bags, or clutch brake mechanisms.
