Guide rod cylinder and common cylinder are both pneumatic actuators, but they have great differences in structure and working principle. Common cylinder is a basic pneumatic element, usually composed of piston, cylinder barrel, seal, spring, etc. Its main function is to achieve linear motion by compressing air. The guide rod cylinder is a more complex pneumatic actuator, it includes cylinder barrel, piston, guide rod, guide mechanism, seals and other components, with high precision and reliability, mainly used in the need for high precision, high stability of the occasion.
The guide rod cylinder has the following main differences compared to the common cylinder.
Better guiding performance: The guide rod cylinder adopts guiding mechanism, which can ensure that the piston does not rotate during the movement, ensuring the stability and precision of the movement, and also reducing the friction loss.
Higher precision: The guide rod cylinder is designed and manufactured with more attention to precision, which can meet the occasions with higher requirements for position, speed, torque, etc. Compared with common cylinder, the tolerance of guide rod cylinder is smaller, and the movement of piston is smoother and more accurate.
Better load bearing capacity: The guide rod cylinder is designed with load bearing capacity in mind and can withstand larger loads during movement, which is suitable for applications that require high loads.
Better stability: The guide rod cylinder has higher stability during movement, which can meet the occasions with higher requirements for speed and position, and also reduces mechanical shock and vibration, which prolongs the service life of mechanical equipment.
More convenient maintenance: The guide rod cylinder adopts modular design, which makes maintenance more convenient and replacement of parts easier.
The guide rod cylinder has higher precision, stability and load capacity compared to common cylinders, which is more suitable for applications requiring high precision, high load, high speed and high stability.
