Air cylinder "speed"...
I am working on a Can crusher.
I am not a pro but I like to keep myself busy by doing new things.
I had a 1½" bore & enerything I needed fot the can ccrusher to "crush" It worked pretty good but not with enough force to do it (it did crush the cans) but sometimes I crushed them many times to get a little bit more flat.
Now I have a 3" bore cylinder (rod size is 1") but It doesnt have the same speed compared to the 1½" bore I had.
Speed Controller ?
Air flow valve ?
QUESTION !!! What should I do to make it more faster, It has the POWER I NEEDED but NOT the speed ! ...
By the way this is a nice website for guys like me... Always lookig for the tight anwer
Hey Gabriel, thanks for your question and nice comment. :-)
What pops to mind, reading your question, is you don't indicate what size compressor you have.
A 3" bore cylinder will require a good chunk of air to move quickly. More info on that here.
I suspect that your air supply is too limited or it's being throttled too much by an in line valve.
