Adjustable cushioning

Advantages of adjustable cushioning

Advantages of adjustable cushioning
  • Reaches end position up to 75% faster
  • More efficient than preset cushioning
  • Productivity – higher cycle times thanks to greater speed in reaching the end position
  • Reduced energy consumption – smaller cylinders with the same cushioning performance
  • Smooth running – fewer vibrations – less noise
  • Cost savings – possible to select smaller and more economical cylinders, valves, and peripherals

Save costs and energy with the right adjustment

Good pneumatic cushioning is critical for strong cylinder performance. With its numerous advancements over the years, adjustable cushioning from AVENTICS is a leading product in the market. 

Basically, there are two different types of pneumatic cushioning: preset cushioning and adjustable cushioning. With preset cushioning, a standard value is assumed. Adjustable cushioning can be tailored to specific applications and is therefore more efficient. Uncushioned cylinders strain transported workpieces, shorten the service life of the module, and generate vibrations within the entire machine.

More efficient – and faster

Adjustable cushioning not only saves energy, but also reduces cycle times. Only a few turns of the screw are sufficient to ideally adjust the cushioning to the workpiece weight and the dynamics of the movement.

Arguments in favor of adjustable cushioning

  • Productivity – higher cycle times thanks to greater speed in reaching the end position
  • Reduced energy consumption – smaller cylinders with the same cushioning performance
  • Smooth-running – fewer vibrations – less noise
  • Cost savings – possible to select smaller and more economical cylinders, valves, and peripherals
