The Original PANCAKE® Cylinder was designed in 1958 by Alfred W. Schmidt, the founder of Fabco-Air, Inc. This particular type of pneumatic actuator was designed to satisfy the need for short stroke, low profile, compact air cylinders that would fit in very tight spaces.

Today, over 5 decades later, the Original Pancake® Air Cylinder from Fabco-Air, Inc., is still the leader in the compact air cylinder market. The Original Pancake® Air Cylinder Line is often imitated, but never matched regarding features, options, quality, strength, appearance, and longevity.
