Linear: Basic Air Cylinder
Basic linear cylinders are used to provide straight-line, in/out linear movement for a variety of applications. Available as single acting (spring extend or spring return) and double acting styles with single rod or double rod configurations, non-rotating, and precision non-rotating models.
Body styles include crimped, round, or tie rod. Single acting cylinders develop thrust in one direction and have lower air consumption compared with the equivalent size of double acting cylinders. With a double acting air cylinder, air pressure may be alternately applied to provide force in both directions.

Linear: Compact Cylinders
A compact cylinder functions in the same manner as a basic cylinder with both single acting and double acting, single or double rod, and non-rotating models. However, SMC compact cylinders minimize space requirements allowing for precise, direct mounting in the least amount of space possible.
Series: CQ2-Z, NCQ2-Z, CQS, CQM, CVQ, RQ, CLQ
Linear: Rodless Air Cylinder
A rodless air cylinder differs from a basic air cylinder in that no piston rod extends outside the cylinder body. Instead, the internal piston is connected to an external carriage, by means of a magnetic or mechanical coupling system.
SMC's rodless air cylinders are ideal for long stroke applications because they are unaffected by rod overhang, bending, piston binding, and uneven seal wear, and for use in confined areas where space is a premium.
Series: CY, REA, MY1, MY2, MY3
Guided Air Cylinders
Guided cylinders utilize guide rods mounted parallel to the piston rod to provide stable, non-rotating, high side load performance. SMC offers dual rod, heavy duty and precision models. Like rodless cylinders, SMC guide rod cylinders reduce rod bending, piston bending and uneven seal wear. Low profile guided actuator series are available for restrictive space limitations.

Thier guns would do even better if2006-01-19 04:54:11 by fieraci
They used the sprinkler valve mod I found (see my previous repsonse). The electric actuator opens much more slowly than the pneumatic modification. More initial dump of full pressure = more muzzle velocity. As if you really wanted 12 year old boys to have more power, but anyway it does not need batteries. BTW: PVC can shatter if overpressurized. I have seen guys cut the legs off denim jeans and use both legs to double sleeve the pressure tank in case of disaster. Nylon cable ties at the ends. A small pressure gauge might be a good idea too.
