ACE Controls has introduced NuCushions, a cost-effective alternative for pneumatic cushions in pneumatic cylinders. Designed for external mount, NuCushions reportedly provide quite operation without the need for adjustment, eliminating the need for the bleed needle assembly, cushion spud, and spud seal. In addition, NuCushions are unaffected by oil, grease, chemicals, sunlight, salt spray, and hydraulic fluids, resulting in longer pneumatic cylinder life.
