Piston and piston rod are supported with replaceable self-lubricating bronze filled PTFE bearings which provides accurate and smooth movement.
  • Wide varieties of mounting styles are available.
  • Besides Conventional Chrome plating, we also use Continuous Chrome plating technology which not only is environment-friendly but also offers technical advantage over conventional plating.
