Printing, Converting and Papermaking

Reliability and Short Lead Times for Fast-Moving Web Processes


Printing, converting and papermaking machines operate quickly and around the clock. You can’t afford to halt these processes due to a faulty cylinder. From laminating films to converting large paper rolls, our pneumatic components provide the reliability and long lifespan required by these demanding applications.

Cylinders like our popular NFPA, Pancake® and F-Series are built to last. They integrate durable materials like aluminum and stainless steel—maximizing their performance and longevity in 24/7 printing processes. And for applications requiring higher forces and minimal floor space, our Multi-Power® Cylinders deliver forces comparable to low-pressure hydraulics at a competitive price.

To meet the unique requirements of your web process, choose from a variety of sizes, configurations and cylinder options like Dial-A-Stroke®, which precisely adjusts strokes by 0.050 to 0.071 inches depending on your cylinder size.

If one of our standard cylinders doesn’t fit your requirements, we can easily design a custom model that can withstand particulates, handle higher cycle rates and more. And best of all, we offer very short lead times on all standard and custom units, ensuring your fast-moving web processes run with minimal downtime.
