Greenco Donates Cylinders to Help the Students of the College of Central Florida
Pneumatic and Hydraulic Cylinders At Its Best!
On behalf of the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA), Greenco Corporation happily donated a number of different types of pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders to the students of the College of Central Florida in Ocala, Florida. The donated cylinders will be used in fluid power courses, starting this semester. "We will be connecting these cylinders this semester and wiring in the reed switches that came with one of the cylinders. That will actually be used in the motor controls and PLC course work as well. So the donation was actually more valuable than just for fluid powers courses," said Sam Ajlani, their Program Director of Engineering Technology. "We have some interesting plans moving forward…..Hopefully some conveyors are being donated so we can tie in the cylinders to move, transfer, and pick various widgets on the conveyor." He continued, "Having the reed switches on the cylinder was great!"
The courses also involve disassembly, repair, and identifying the various parts of the cylinders, as well as using the manuals that Greenco provided. "I would like to say we love the formulas because we actually are using them to solve some simple problems," Professor Ajlani said, referring to the engineering formulas in the Greenco catalog. Greenco provides those formulas because they are so useful in calculating a number of different aspects of a fluid power application, including force output, loading capabilities, and deceleration rates based on either the standard internal air cushions or the optional external shock absorber package.
It is exciting to think of how these donations are helping students attain better careers, and a better future for all of us. Greenco Corporation is glad to have helped make that a reality.
NEW DURAMASTER NFPA CYLINDER CATALOG
Have You Seen Our Newly Revamped Rod Cylinder Catalog?
We are excited to present our new Duramaster NFPA product line catalog for 2016. For over 45 years, we have built a reputation for high quality NFPA tie rod cylinders, round cylinders, air over oil tanks and more. In revitalizing our catalog, we have also updated our pricing pages.
Rest assured this was NOT a price increase on our NFPA cylinders and only a couple of accessory items had incurred a price increase. Our company has been absorbing this additional cost from suppliers over the last couple of years. We’ve taken a hard look at our costs and believe we have maintained some of the best pricing available for top of the line NFPA cylinders. Duramaster is proud to hold our pricing since 2011 and will remain committed to maintaining our competitive edge. We will do this by continuous attention to quality (ISO 9001:2008 manufacturer since 2002), service and competitive pricing.
As always, please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. The new catalog is also available for download on line at Duramaster Rod Cylinder Catalog. We thank you for your business and dedication to the Duramaster NFPA cylinder product lines.

Greenco Celebrates Its 45th Anniversary
Greenco is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year. We are proud of our tradition of offering fine products made right here in the United States in our own facility, and proud of the dedication and loyalty of the many fine employees who machine them, assemble them, sell them, and those who watch all the details that go along with those activities.
American manufacturing has had its ups and downs over the years, and much American manufacturing capacity has moved off shore over the past 25 years. Recently, there appears to be a new interest in “re-shoring” manufacturing operations here in the U.S., and it remains to be seen how much this will actually happen. We think there are many good reasons for maintaining strong U.S manufacturing and we are glad we never left.
We owe our success to all of you, our key distributors and customers who have continued to work hard to promote our products during good times and bad. Thanks for all that you do!
