What is the difference between MINI cylinder models MA,MI and MAL suitable for industrial automation?

Mini cylinder generally refers to a cylinder with a small diameter and stroke, and a smaller cylinder shape. MA, MI, and MAL are all mini cylinders, but the difference is that, MA and MI are stainless steel mini cylinders, while MAL are aluminum alloy mini cylinders


The MA cylinder is a stainless steel mini cylinder, available in single acting and double acting versions. Among the single acting versions, there are single acting extrusion and single acting introduction versions; The double action type includes standard double action type, double axis double action type, double axis double action stroke adjustable type, double axis double action adjustable buffer type, double axis double action buffer medium type, and double axis double action adjustable buffer type. The cylinder diameter has a diameter of 16, Available in sizes of 20, 25, 32, 40, 50, and 63, with a standard stroke of 25-500mm. The working medium is air, and the working temperature ranges from -20 to 70 ℃.

The MA series stainless steel mini cylinder has the following characteristics:

(1) The MA cylinder body is made of high-precision stainless steel pipes, which have high strength and are more corrosion-resistant than the MAL series;

(2) The front and rear covers are equipped with fixed anti-collision pads, which can reduce the impact of cylinder reversing;

(3) Multiple forms of rear cover make cylinder installation more convenient;

(4) The front and rear covers are connected to the stainless steel body with a riveted roller structure, ensuring reliable connection;

(5) The MA series mini cylinders are all magnetic type.



The MI cylinder is a stainless steel mini cylinder with multiple action, single action extrusion, and single action introduction types. The cylinder diameter is 8, 10, 12, 16, 20, 25, 32, and 40. The working medium is air, and the working temperature is -20~70 ℃.

The MI series stainless steel mini cylinder has the following characteristics:

(1) MI cylinder complies with ISO6432 standard

(2) The front and rear covers are equipped with fixed anti-collision pads, which can reduce the impact of cylinder reversing;

(3) Multiple forms of rear cover make cylinder installation more convenient;

(4) The front and rear covers are connected to the stainless steel body with a riveted roller structure, ensuring reliable connection

(5) The stainless steel piston rod and cylinder body enable the cylinder to adapt to half corrosive working environments



The MAL cylinder is an aluminum alloy mini cylinder, available in single action and multiple action versions, with a diameter of 20, Available in sizes of 25, 32, and 40, with a standard stroke of 25-500mm. The working medium is also air, and the working temperature ranges from -20 to 70 ℃.

MAL series aluminum alloy mini cylinder:

(1) Implement this enterprise standard and use aluminum round tube cylinder body;

(2) The piston seal adopts a special-shaped bidirectional sealing structure, which is compact in size and has oil storage function;

(3) The front and rear covers are connected to the cylinder pipes through threaded connections;

(4) The front cover adopts self-lubricating bearing guidance, which has good lubrication and guidance performance;

(5) Multiple forms of rear cover make cylinder installation more convenient.



Stainless steel cylinders are widely used in various industrial and commercial environments that require high reliability and precise control due to their compact design, high precision, corrosion resistance, and diverse installation methods. Application scenarios such as food processing and beverage production environments that comply with hygiene standards; Ensure product safety and hygiene in the pharmaceutical industry and medical equipment; Chemical production lines and petroleum industry equipment with corrosion resistance and high reliability.

Ourekai (OLK) Pneumatic recommends that you choose the appropriate cylinder type for your application scenario based on specific application requirements, including space limitations, thrust requirements, accuracy requirements, and installation methods.
