Linear Thrusters

DURA-THRUST ET Series of Linear Thrusting Devices provide a practical, low-cost, economy approach to automatic working positioning/holding. The ET series is designed for non-rotating vertical or light duty horizontal applications where the load capacity our LT series are not required, while still offering the quality construction and durability you’ve come to expect.


DURA-THRUST ET Series is externally powered by standard non-repairable air cylinders. The slide bearings are oil impregnated bronze bushings. Rods are pinned to the end blocks to assure positive location. Adjustable shaft mounted locking collars with nylon bumper pads allow easy setup and provide low noise level minimizing the clatter inherent in fast acting slide devices. Furthermore the entire ET series is sensor ready.


DURA-THRUST ET Series units can be mounted and located in any plane with provided mounting holes and dowel pin holes. The main bodies contain both tapped holes and counterbored clearance holes for cap screws. The end blocks contain the same features for easy adaptations to additional work moving/holding devices or customer tooling.

The ET series of economy thrusters is perfect for simple applications
such as part ejection, part stops, lifting tables, and clamps.
