Double Acting Pneumatic Cylinders

For nearly five decades, Yates Cylinders has persevered as a leading manufacturer of quality, affordable double acting pneumatic cylinders

What is a Double Acting Pneumatic Cylinder? At it’s most basic a double acting pneumatic cylinder (also referred to as an “air” cylinder) is a cylinder where it’s output force, or “thrust” generated by the piston moves in both forward and retracting directions.

Types of Double Acting Air Cylinders: Most of our light- and heavy-duty cylinders fall into three categories.

  • Tie-rod cylinders – When your operation requires actions such as bending, clamping or forging, a tie-rod cylinder is just the ticket. Our wide range of configurations can accommodate custom length, bore-size and mount requirements for all of your specialized applications.
  • Mill-duty cylinders – When an ultra-durable component is needed, Yates’ mill-duty cylinders have you covered. These pneumatic workhorses go the distance for you in the most extreme conditions. A Yates mill-duty double acting pneumatic cylinder is equipped with a high-load piston design, chrome-plated rods and heavy wall tubing.
  • Welded cylinders – Our welded pneumatic cylinders are a solid choice for manufacturing and packaging applications. We also offer replacement cylinders for machinery including latch, tilt, press, transfer and mold equipment.

Because the small things can make a big difference to your business, Yates houses a large selection of cylinder parts and accessories. Rods, seal kits, couplers and swivel-eye brackets are just a few of the accessories available to you. In addition to double acting air cylinders we also offer single acting pneumatic cylinders.
