Pneumatic mechanisms are used in a wide range of industrial applications. For transmission of energy and information in pneumatic mechanism are used compressed air. Production and distribution of compressed air in pneumatic systems leads to considerable losses. This fact causes a relatively low overall efficiency of the pneumatic system. The article will compare the possibilities of reducing compressed air consumption in linear pneumatic motors.
