When it comes to the delivery of linear power, the choice is usually between hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. For many companies, hydraulic cylinders are the best option. While many standard variations of single and double action cylinders as well as welded versions are readily available, sometimes this is not the most effective or even suitable option. For certain applications and environments, the only possible alternative is a custom hydraulic cylinder.
Reasons for Selecting Custom Hydraulic Cylinders
While standard hydraulic cylinders are suitable for a wide choice of applications, they may not be able to address specific needs or demands of a particular piece of equipment. Customization can speak to the specific requirements of a machine. In other words, a custom hydraulic cylinder:
- Provides a unique solution to a specific issue or concern
- Matches the specific requirements of an explicit, custom-designed and engineered machine rather than the general needs of standardized equipment
- Can include specific features required by the machinery and/or requested by the company
- Reduces potential errors arising from using standard options
Customization allows your company to put into place a hydraulic cylinder that completely addresses the needs of a custom-made or even standard machine. The design team, combined with the skills of engineers and others produces a result that meets the exact requirements of a company’s equipment. This approach is uncompromising in meeting exacting specifications and reducing any instances of over or under engineering.
Custom Hydraulic Cylinder
For those looking for the best option for providing linear power, the obvious choice is a hydraulic cylinder. However, for those who require more than an off-the-rack or standard cylinder for their equipment, customization provides the solution. In fact, a custom hydraulic cylinder may be the optimal answer. It provides a means of addressing the specific requirements of machinery, therefore reducing the instances of potential engineering problems.
