How Many Times Can You Use Pneumatics?

Has anybody done any research into how many times you can use pneumatics and still have decent power?
I would test this myself but I don’t yet have any pneumatics, and I am hoping to get some next season.

Well let me frank - there is optimal data and implementation data. For the former - not enough information to give an informed answer and the latter, if your implementation (e.g. build quality) is poor no idea.


Depends on which pistons you use (double vs single acting), build quality, force you are moving, and a few other factors. For our team, we can get around 10 actuations before the strength weakens on our mogo tilter design but that really varies team to team.
