Emerson’s New Aluminum Cylinder Boosts Machine Speeds and Cuts Downtime
New AVENTICS™ TM5 TaskMaster™ aluminum cylinder increases reliability and productivity, reduces vibration and noise, while being cost-effective
LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 29, 2020) – Machine builders and their end-user manufacturers can increase machine speeds and reliability with the new AVENTICS™ TM5 TaskMaster™ aluminum cylinder from Emerson. The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA)-compatible pneumatic cylinder reduces cost, energy consumption, equipment wear and downtime.
With its rugged aluminum body construction and a steel piston rod, the TM5 TaskMaster features Emerson’s state-of-the-art pneumatic cushioning technology that allows an ideal cushion adjustment to slow down the piston to a stop by the time it reaches the endcap. Ideal cushioning reduces the time it takes the cylinder to complete a stroke, allowing an improvement in efficiency that significantly boosts machine speed and lowers endcap hammer. Ideal cushioning also reduces cycle time and enables the TM5 cylinders to carry higher loads without sacrificing cylinder performance.
The cylinder incurs less stress and there is no end-of-stroke bounce or end-cap slamming, which is a main source of cylinder wear, slowness and noise. Ideal cushioning thus lengthens cylinder operating life and reduces downtime related to cylinder failure. Additionally, it reduces machine noise and vibration while reducing energy consumption.
“The all-new TM5 TaskMaster gives machine builders and end-user manufacturers the tools to make their machines faster and more reliable,” said James Ward, vice president engineering, machine automation, Americas, at Emerson. “It’s the highest performing and most reliable TaskMaster cylinder ever ...

Solenoid Valve Design Factors Whitepaper
Solenoid valves are used in a broad range of demanding industry applications. Whether they perform millions of cycles or spend long periods on standby, solenoid valves must perform the right way at the right time — every time. In this whitepaper, you will learn more on how different design factors impact safety and reliability, especially in critical applications requiring Emergency Shutdown (ESD). You’ll also discover the significant advantages of robust, low friction seal designs and how they can help increase the long-term reliability of your process control applications.
