A pneumatic cylinder, or air actuator, is a way to use compressed air to provide a push or pull movement. An air cylinder consists, as the name suggests, of a cylinder, a plunger and an arm. The plunger is sized to fit the cylinder exactly, creating an airtight seal. There are two types of cylinder: single-acting cylinders and double-acting cylinders. In a single-acting cylinder, there is a port at one end and an exhaust at the other. In a double-acting cylinder, there is a port at each end.
