Do electric cylinders cost more than pneumatic cylinders?

Companies still use pneumatic actuators because of the lower investment costs in some cases. However, the generation and distribution of the necessary compressed air is accompanied by very high losses, which can only be optimized to a limited extent.

Various scientific studies have already provided evidence that after replacing pneumatic positioning systems with electromechanical savings of up to 90 percent could be achieved.
