Hydraulic & pneumatic cylinders including shocks have a term called cushioning. Cushioning is required to decelerate a cylinder's piston stroke before it hits its lowest point and strikes the end cap. Excess cushioning increases the time it takes for the piston to reach the end of its stroke, and not enough cushioning increases the impact shock at the end of stroke.

Science Breakthrough

Lubrication is what keeps a bearing in motion over time. It’s a vital element when it comes to the life of a bearing as it works to lower friction while keeping the bearing from overheating. When friction is low, it results in less energy – and in the case of piston assembly friction reduction in internal combustion engines, less gas and oil.
