The machine shop includes state-of-the-art dismantling and assembly equipment, as well as automatic cylinder honing to recover damaged bores – hone capacity 2” to 20” bore (50mm – 5000m) and 4 metre stroke length (up to 8 metres end-for-end).

Hydraulic cylinders come in a variety of sizes and designs, from very simple to complex ones with sophisticated features to suit special mobile and industrial applications.

Hydraulic cylinders are linear actuators – devices for converting hydraulic energy into mechanical energy.

  • Single-acting cylinders are pressurised at one end only. They rely on gravity on the load cause retraction otherwise they can be spring assisted.
  • The double-acting cylinder is the most common type in mobile and industrial applications. Hydraulic pressure is applied to either port, giving powered motion when extending or retracting.
