Compact Cylinder is used if the space available for a standard pneumatic cylinder proves insufficient. This cylinder is compact in size and is usually shorter than a standard cylinder. This cylinder is available in different variants according to the requirements. Design of these cylinders is compact, this doesn't mean that compact cylinders are automatically considered to be the lightest of cylinders. However, the short design of these cylinders does save a substantial amount of weight, which is why these components are very popular in weight-relevant applications. Compact Cylinders are available in magnetic & non magnetic version. Elastomer and cushion is used in the manufacturing of cylinders, that's why they provide less friction.
