The single acting hydraulic cylinders primarily function on the loads and springs for operation. There are two types of hydraulic cylinders that are differentiated on how the piston rod is set. They are mainly used for hand held drilling machines, clamping, conveyor belt positioning of the product, easy and quick punching of a product or even marking a product. Some of the major advantages of using a single acting hydraulic cylinder over other cylinders is that it is safer as well as easier to control than others. The resetting of the cylinder back to its original position after the operation is done makes the reset sequencing easier to use. Not only this, it also reduces operational costs and enhances the efficiency of the operation.
