What are pneumatics?
Pneumatics is the when you use compressed air to move a pistion, a pistion could be virtually many things. ---- It is just like a hydraulic system but instead of a fluid you use air as the working fluid.
Pneumatics is the branch of physics or technology concerned with the mechanical properties of gases. And that's what "Pneumatics" mean
Pneumatics is the use of pressurized gas to affect mechanical motion.
It is extremely essential in Hydraulics and mechanics. Your car would not run without pneumatics.
it compresses and expands gas so i would say pneumatics but not in the normal sense
Each one has its own advantages. Generally hydraulics are more powerful while pneumatics are less expensive overall and simpler to maintain. Pneumatics are also generally cleaner environmentally. Pneumatics can also be pre-pressurized while hydraulics cannot. Hydraulics tend to be better for large things, like heavy machinery. Pneumatics tend to be better for small things, like cars, robots, and Legos.
In a nutshell, pneumatics is a means whereby signals and energy are transmitted, controlled and distributed using pressurized air as the medium. Pneumatics can be effectively combined with other technologies through the use of sensors, transducers and microprocessors
In an Automobile Pneumatics is used in tyres, breaks, suspension speed control and time delay
In road works. The massive pneumatic drill that makes all that noise lol
hydraulics is the use of liquids particularly hydraulic oils as a medium to create force where as pneumatics also used air.
Pneumatics have been used for thousands of years, ever since hunters used the blow-gun to take down their prey.
oil is slightly compressible 0.5 % at 70 bar. but air is compressible. so to get the required pressure pneumatics require more energy source than hydraulics also there are some limitations for pneumatics in terms of force.
I'll ignore the horrible way the question was asked.. Pneumatics use the flow of pressurised gas to transmit motion.
they work by air
the compressibility of gas
pneumatics consists of using air or gas to do work. hydraulics use water or a liquid to do work both gasses and liquids are considered fluids
Rates. Simultaneously monitor the entire system. Act quickly. Disadvantages. Design problem. Expensive components. Low power.
Basically pneumatics deal with lower loadings, hydraulics offer a better power to space ratio, useful in say aircraft design.
Pneumatics could be used in a system like at the bank drive-through to shoot the container through the tube, or air powered tools, such as nail guns and drills.
Depends entirely on what you're doing. If it's light weight work - Doors and the likes, pneumatics. If it's heavy duty work - JCB and construction, hydraulics.
My thoughts go like this...(from watching 'Scrapheap Challenge"0 plus a little basic knowledge of physics. 1/ Pneumatics involve the movement of pistons and what not via the medium of compressed air or air under pressure. 2/ Hydraulics involve the movement of pistons and what not via the medium of compressed fluids or fluid under pressure. 3/ Fluid is denser than gas (compressed air). I believe hydraulics can handle far heavier loads than pneumatics. Pneumatics would… Read More
Pneumatics have the advantage over Hydraulics in that they are clean, require lower maintenance and respond quicker. When the application does not require that much force, pneumatics will do the job. Furthermore: the force needed for train doors should not be that large. It should only open and close the doors but not crush people that manage to get stuck in between
Ok well Pneumatics
They are gases, usually air.
The P is silent.
A: physics tells us that if a put 1lb of pressure here it will be 1 lb far away. B: The function of pneumatics is to affect mechanical action by means of compressed gasses.
a disadvantage of hydraulics is that if the pipe breaks the oil or other fluids will leak all over everything. Where as pneumatics uses gas when a line breaks when using pneumatics it wouldn't spill
Pneumatics is a method to transfer energy from one point to another using actuators which which are driven by fluids under pressure. Pneumatics restricts itself to gaseous fluids while hyraulics uses liquids to transfer the energy. The transferring of energy in pneumatics such as pumping air into a pneumatic cylinder must be controlled. You can control the pressure by manually opening a valve, automaticall by detecting its pressure, or by sending an electrical signal. The… Read More
it is because pneumatics is more flexible and easy to use rather than hydraulic [ebolton] There is no need to have a reservoir or return piping. The working "fluid", air, is non-toxic and non-flammable. Poster below is correct. Air systems typically have a tank that is the analog of a hydraulic reservoir.[ebolton] ***************** Actually there is need for air reservoir in industrial pneumatics systems. Hydraulics can handle more powerful aplications than pneumatics for the same… Read More

more than your life time
movement of fluid or air under pressure
Pneumatics are good for lots of things. Here is a brief explanation of on one use. A good example for pneumatics might be a cap gun, where you put put in the caps and pull the trigger. The trigger makes the caps come out. Great pressure is applied to the caps, which gives them great power and energy when they leave the gun. That is why the cap guns fire so hard. Pneumatics are good… Read More
easy: Both use pressure now hydrolics used liquids (liquids cannot be compressed) to exhert pressure pneumatics uses gasses which are compressed to exhurt pressure thtas the basics anyway
Hydraulics are suitable for higher forces & precise motion than pneumatics. This is because hydraulic systems generally run at significantly higher pressures than pneumatics systems. Movements are more precise (repeatable) because hydraulics use an incompressible liquid to transfer power whilst pneumatics uses gases. Pneumatic systems have some advantages too. They are usually significantly cheaper than hydraulic systems, can move faster (gas much less viscous than oil) and don't leak oil if they develop a leak.

Bionics is the imitation of biology in electronics, pneumatics, robotics, etc.
BMW uses hydraulics for its brakes

It is all about air: more specifically, devices which are operated by pressurised air.
One uses a liquid, one uses air. not the same
yes, and also a chain and sprocket, pneumatics, and lever
Gasses CAN move solids. Look up pneumatics
boiling water, pneumatics, hot water in a thermos
Not exactly sure of your question? An Industrial Engineer does study pneumatics, but does not specialize in that field. The curriculum also covers Ergonomics, Civil, Mechanical, Hydraulic and several other disciplines, just not to a level that the specific engineering discipline would cover.
Speed. Rapid transfer of power. Cheap air. The system is simple.
Each one has its advantages and disadvantages so it depends on what you wish to achieve.
the branch of physics that deals with the mechanical properties of air and other gases.
J P. Hasebrink has written: 'Basic pneumatics'
Fluids are used in Hydraulics - fluids are essentially incompressible - they transmit forces well (e.g. a car bottle lack) Gases are used in pneumatics - gases are compressible - you can therefore store energy in a pneumatic system (e.g. a car tyre)
Machines of all types need power. Power allows the machines to do specific kinds of work. Two of the most efficient and compact forms of power for machines are hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Hydraulics and pneumatics can be configured into different types of power sources to lift, lower, pull, push, turn, rotate and move machines carrying tremendous loads. Tools can also be powered to break stone, join steel and cut wood. Hydraulics and pneumatics provide… Read More
