Hydraulic Cylider Application
Hydraulic cylinders are one of the most important aspects of a mechanical device. Most of what we see in our surrounding, the buildings, cars, trams, elevators and many other are result of hydraulic cylinders in work. The work of a cylinder is varied and its application essential for the development of our world and here we are taking a look at all the hydraulic cylinder application.
While there is no limit to the application of hydraulic cylinder, there are a few industry which rely on them heavily. Predominantly used in mining industry, hydraulic cylinders can also be found in the agricultural industry, aerospace, forestry, automotive, civil engineering, and metal/plastic manufacturing industry.
All of these industries rely partly or entirely on hydraulic cylinders to convert unidirectional force into unidirectional motion. While pneumatic, mechanical and electrical systems are growing in the industry, the power, reliability and capacity of hydraulic cylinder can rarely be matched, that is why industry such as these trust hydraulic cylinder application in their machines.
- Mining (earth moving vehicles such as cranes, drills, loaders)
- Civil Engineering (construction of dams, bridges)
- Alternative Energy (wind turbines movement, sea roller, wave energy converter, ocean buoy)
- Waste Management (dump trucks, compressing devices)
- Forestry (logging heads, transporters)
- Maritime (ship building, docks management)
- Agricultural (sprayers, harvesters, plows, trenchers, sowers)
- Ariel Work Platform
- Aerospace (plane building, movement of flaps and landing gears)
From the house you live in to the vehicle you take to go to your work, almost everything in our surrounding came in contact with hydraulic cylinder machines. So, there must be a lot of care shown when it comes to selecting a hydraulic cylinder for your machine.
Why Hydraulic Cylinder?
In recent years pneumatic cylinder and other mechanical and electrical application have been introduced as alternatives to hydraulic cylinders. While they can do the job required, hydraulic cylinder are head and shoulder above everything else because of the capacity and reliability of the actuators.
Fluid power is almost always superior to most other alternatives and increasing the weight, and diameter of the piston is the easiest way of increasing power of a cylinders. Pneumatic cylinders are limited in their capacity of output. That is not the case for hydraulic cylinders. Take for example a work press in a metal manufacturing plant, increasing the size of the cylinder drastically increases the pressure produced by the cylinder. Something like that is lacking in most other technologies we use to do similar tasks. So, it is important to understand the work you are doing, output you need and the chose the hydraulic cylinder accordingly.
Hydraulic Cylinders for All Applications at Eurobalt Engineering
One of the benefits of custom manufacturer of hydraulic cylinder is we do not have to worry about the production capability of our factory. From a cylinder measuring 32 meters in length to one weighing over a 2 tons, we have experience building hydraulic cylinders for all application.
Most of our initial customers were dump trucks manufacturers. Telescopic double acting cylinder was their need and something we still provide to this day. Then there are industrial press manufacturers who order cylinder weighing more than a ton per cylinder and everything have been delivery to the doorsteps of the client.
Hydraulic cylinder application is varied, we have shown that, it is not limited to one consumer sector. But we have positioned ourselves as the leader in custom building every single cylinder to the needs of our cylinders. Talk to us about the hydraulic cylinder application, where you are using our actuators and we will provide you with the best possible solution.
So, give us a call and one our technical sales specialist will go help you get through your need. No matter the size or hydraulic cylinder application, if it is something we have done before, we would love to explore a new avenue with you. At Eurobalt Engineering, we are a customer oriented company, so we do what is best for you and your company.
