Industrial assembly, forming, and piercing applications often require the use of actuators or cylinders to generate linear motion during their operating sequence. Hydra-pneumatic cylinders, also known as hydro-pneumatic cylinders, air/oil intensifier cylinders, or air-over-oil cylinders, are hybrid cylinders that produce a medium to high force hydraulic power stroke using compressed air rather than a hydraulic power unit. The power stroke can be initiated through various sensing mechanisms, such as the detection of the cylinder’s position or its contact with the workpiece.
