Norgren's Lintra Rodless Cylinder Range Saves on Valuable Pneumatic Installation Space

Littleton, Colorado, USA - September 2003.

In response to this Norgren, the global pneumatics expert, is offering the Lintra Range of Rodless cylinders to deliver that all-important saving in terms of installation space.

The vital saving in installation space is due to the fact that the stroke of the cylinder is contained within the length of the unit itself.
