What are Pneumatic components?

By |2017-07-15T10:19:40+00:00July 14th, 2017|101 Knowledge|

Pneumatic components are components of pneumatic systems. Pneumatic system is a branch of engineering that makes use of gas or compressed air. The principles of pneumatic are the same as those for hydraulic, but pneumatic transmits power using a gas instead of a liquid. With pneumatic, air is usually pumped into a receiver using a compressor. The [...]
