Norgren’s Lintra series helps to reduce machine costs
11 April 2006
If a new design calls for a rodless cylinder that is proven, reliable, flexible and can help to reduce machine costs then the Lintra series from Norgren could be the perfect choice. More and more OEMs are specifying products that offer guaranteed performance to reduce maintenance periods, lower design/running costs and to maximise machine uptime. The Lintra family has the ability to deliver these specification requirements. Featuring a long life sealing system Lintra has extremely low reported leakage rates, which ensures running costs are kept firmly under control and with life figures in excess of 6000Km maintenance periods are kept to a minimum. For 2006 the Lintra series represents even better value for money with restructured pricing thus helping control machine build costs in today’s competitive market.
Available with up to four different carriage guide systems, as an integral part of the cylinder design, Lintra features the possibility of conversion whilst on site. It can be specified in a wide range of variations to include high and low speed options, alternative porting, double carriage, integral valves, integral brake and twin stroke options. This wide range of application features means a more cost effective solution to the problems associated with machine function and control.
Incorporating a lightweight high strength profile barrel Lintra features high moment resistance to deflection and twisting. Because of this it can be used as a structural member of the machine frame thus simplifying design and reducing costs. What’s more, the Lintra features highly efficient internal cushioning, which gives the cylinder the ability to absorb higher levels of kinetic energy. This reduces the need for external shock absorbers, which again simplifies machine design and reduces component count and costs.
Lite and compact versions of Lintra offer basic cylinder lengths up to 35% shorter than competitive products. This reduces dead space resulting in cost savings whilst retaining operating performance. Suitable for lubricated or non-lubricated operation Lintra features bores sizes from 16 to 80mm, is available with stroke lengths up to 8.5m and has a pressure range up to 10bar.
