Cushioning, or soft start as it is sometimes known, helps to slow down a hydraulic cylinder, by reducing the speed of a piston at the end of its stroke, or before it meets the end cap. This method is generally used in double-acting cylinders, for heavy duty applications that use a lot of kinetic energy.
The ultimate purpose of using a cushioning method is to avoid damage to the piston, which could occur when a high oil volume is applied to a hydraulic cylinder.
Other advantages of using a cushioning method are that it extends the life of the cylinder by reducing the impact of vibrations, as well as reduces any excessive audible noises.
