I'm considering using a vacuum cylinder in my project (like these ones) to lift sheets of cardboard, but being new to mechanical engineering I'm not at all sure what I need to attach to operate one, and the supplier's site definitely offers no details. I think I'll need a vacuum pump, but I don't know what size is necessary (for example, will something like this mini pump do?), and whether I just hook up the pump to the hole on the cylinder, or there are other parts that are required.

(I hope this is the right SE site for this; it was a toss-up between this one and the Robotics one.)
