These custom solutions were created because the standard cylinders available would not meet the applications specific demands.


We stand by the design and manufacturing of our cylinders. We inspect and test every cylinder produced before we ship and all our cylinders come with a 1 year warranty for manufacturing and material defects. At any time if our cylinder fails we will provide customer service support to review the failure and provide information on repairing it to original factory specifications. We will also assist in diagnosing the underlying cause of failure in the operation.


Our purpose is to provide our customers the right solution to their actuation problem at the right price. We are very good at diagnosing underlying problems that cause actuators to underperform or fail prematurely. There are a myriad of cylinders available in the market but the key is finding or creating the right one for your particular application that will perform to your expectations. That is our job and we do it well.
