I'm liquidating some excess inventory. Very compact, industrial quality, bearing supported, linear thrusters. Make a great "Haunted Book Shelf".
Have around 15-20 min of each size and stroke in stock. Will offer 25% discount off list price for no min qty. Will offer 40% off list for min qty of 6 slides (mix and match strokes & bores). Want a whole pallet to resell, we can talk even cheaper.
These are all brand new and in sealed boxes. Guranteed to be new and 100% functional out of box but can not extend manufacturers warranty beyond DOA. Can supply 2D and 3D CAD models, accessories, and sensors. In stock ready to ship.

The link to the price list below is the "list price". Discount will be taken off this.

Hey Scott.
I don't understand what this Linear Thruster is. What does it do? What can you use it for?

These are typically used in Industrial Automation but can be adapted to the Darker Industries. It's similar to a pneumatic cylinder. But the cylinder is machined out of a block of aluminum so it's internally powered (no cylinder sticking out the back). This makes up the body of the cylinder. The tool plate is what actually moves. There are recirculating ball bearings between the tool plate and the body giving you moment load and payload capacity. You couldn't put a load directly on a basic air cylinder. You'd need to incorporate some form of bearings and support. In this package its alredy done for you. In addition, there are stops and shocks that attach right to it with convenient kits. Now you can fine tune the stroke or decelerate the load. They also have built in magnets and dovetail slots down the side. Slide a sensor (switch) into the dovetail slot and now you have feedback to your controller to tell it when its fully extended or retracted. Has mutliple mounting patterns so you can bolt it right up without fabricating mounts. The strokes are limited so your not going to use these to raise props or pop ups but they work great on dresser drawers or underneath books on a book shelf. You can control speed with a flow control and actuate very quickly so that drawers snap open or slow them way down so books seem to float in and out. If you download the catalog pdf there is a cutaway view showing the working principle.
Clear as mud?
