About the pneumatic linear actuator

Who doesn’t love a classic? There are classic clothes - like t-shirts and pull-over sweaters. Classic building designs - like Greek Revival and Victorian. Even classic cars. Whether it’s a building, a car or a pair of jeans, there’s nothing like the time-tested design and reliability of a classic.

When it comes to industrial automation, the pneumatic linear actuator or pneumatic air cylinder is a leading example of time-tested reliability. Since 1955, we've been developing and manufacturing these dependable workhorses for industry
