Pneumatic cylinder is mechanical device which use power of compressed gas to produce a force in reciprocating linear motion. There is a cylinder having one or two openings for compressed gas and there is a piston. When the compressed gas enters into cylinder, it causes movement of piston from high pressure to low pressure side. They are used as linear motion actuators in industrial applications
