These units are not particularly common and most cylinder manufacturers only offer them for special requests. There are only a few basic mounts that are usually supplied on pneumatic cylinders. Figure 2-16 shows a threaded nose mount that is common on smaller cylinders and a pivot mount, which is generally supplied on larger cylinders. Block mounts (Fig. 2-15) can be supplied as an integral part of the cylinder or as an accessory for the nose mount. Diaphragm and bolt-together cylinders (Figs. 2-13 and 2-17) are normally supplied with a universal bolt pattern that will accommodate a range of mount brackets and options.

When used and maintained properly, they can provide a compact power source with an exceptional service life. They are utilized in almost every type of rotational pneumatic tool, from die grinders to overhead cranes. Figure 2-31 shows a sectional illustration of a rotary vane air motor. The motor consists of a cylinder with an internal rotor. The rotor is placed off-center so that its outside diameter is tangent to the cylinder’s inside diameter. The rotor carries four vanes that are placed into slots.

Any number of rod ends may be mounted to accommodate a wide variety of applications. Controlling cylinders is not particularly difficult. The industry offers a wide variety of components that can be assembled to provide suitable control for almost any application. The simplest way to control a cylinder is to connect the air supply to the ports of the cylinder through a four-way ball valve. Turn the valve to one position and the pressure is vented from the retract side of the cylinder and applied to the extend side, extending the cylinder.
