Key Features

  • Double-acting air (pneumatic) cylinder with two air ports for pushing and pulling the piston rod in both directions
  • Tie-rod body with single piston rod and four exterior rods to secure end caps on cylinder barrel
  • Anodized aluminum for resistance to corrosion and tarnishing with a carbon-steel piston rod for strength and durability
  • Basic-style mounting with rod jam nut for added brackets (sold separately)
  • Air cushioning to dampen the sound of the piston striking the end caps

Product Description

This SMC double-acting NCA1 Series air cylinder has a tie-rod body, basic-style mounting, and air cushioning to absorb kinetic energy and reduce noise during operation. The air cylinder (also called a pneumatic cylinder) has an anodized aluminum body to help resist corrosion and tarnishing, and it has a single piston rod made of carbon steel for strength and durability. The double-acting air cylinder uses airflow through two air ports on opposite ends of the cylinder barrel to push out and retract the piston rod to produce continued movement. The air cylinder’s tie-rod body design uses four exterior rods to hold the end caps securely on the cylinder barrel. Air cushioning is standard to this series to absorb kinetic energy and to dampen the sound of the piston striking the air cylinder’s end caps, and nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) seals contain air and protect the barrel and piston rod. The non-repairable air cylinder has basic-style mounting and includes a rod jam nut to hold brackets (sold separately) in place for rigid surface installation. The maximum pressure of the pneumatic cylinder is 250 pounds per square inch (psi), and it has a temperature range of 40 to 140 degrees F. The tie-rod air cylinder's square head meets ANSI (NFPA) T3.6.6 Re-1996 mounting standards for quality assurance. This air cylinder is suitable for medium-duty clamping, pressing, and lifting applications.

Pneumatic actuators fall into two classes: linear and rotary. Linear actuators move objects in straight lines, while rotary actuators turn objects, or rotate them in varying directions. Air cylinders (also called pneumatic cylinders), the most common type of linear actuators, use pressurized air to pull and push piston rods in and out of cylinder barrels. This motion moves mechanisms connected to the rods, or (for detached items) directs or blocks travel using rod-attached plates. Air cylinders execute pushing, pulling, lifting, lowering, pressing, and stopping functions, and they come in several different body types, including round, compact, tie-rod, guided, slide, and clamp. Pneumatic cylinders can be either single acting, with one compressed air port to push the rod in a single direction and a spring to return the rod, or double acting, with two compressed air ports on opposite ends of the cylinder to both extend and retract the rod. For quieter piston operation, air cylinders can come with cushioning in one or both ends of their barrels. Several mounting styles are available both for attaching the air cylinder ends to moving components in a pneumatic system and for mounting to rigid surfaces. Air cylinders are used in industrialized automation tasks in automotive, food processing, material handling, and robotics applications, among others.
