Hydraulic cylinder

A hydraulic cylinder is a mechanical actuator used to supply unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke. Hydraulic cylinders are used in almost every market and so are available in a variety of configurations. Both primary types of hydraulic cylinders are Tie-rod and Welded. Each of these cylinder types can have unique applications due to their designs. Tie-rod cylinders are usually installed in light to moderate duty applications and tend to be designed to end up being repaired or re-loaded if required. Welded cylinders are made for most applications and are more complex in design but are generally more difficult to correct because of the welded style. Welded cylinders are typically a better solution due to their compact design and when a more robust style is important in an application.
