Cylinder Design & Engineering

We aim to supply the best cylinder solutions to our customers.  Our Engineers detail the requirements of the hydraulic cylinder, and create a 3D model which is used to perform stress testing on the design.  This approach means the suitability of cylinder parts and assemblies are determined prior to manufacture.

This integrated approach to hydraulic cylinder design makes our cylinder designs both robust and cost effective.

In-house Computer Aided Drafting and Design

Whether you are starting with a sketch, an initial CADD design, or just a rough idea, Cylinder can provide a hydraulic cylinder design service to suit your requirements. Our in-house computer aided drafting and design work is just one part of a truly unique process. Our data capture and configuration procedure at the start allows us to quickly and accurately turn around initial specifications and associated pricing. This has proven to be a huge help to our customers when making repair, or replace decisions. Especially where production is stopped or impeded by machinery breakdown.

Specialist Hydraulic Engineering Expertise

Of course it is no use having a highly function CADD system, or automated process, without expert input.  It is the wealth of experience and expertise on cylinder design and performance that makes our design services so effective.  This expertise has allowed us to create a very streamlined cylinder design process. It also comes into play in every design when we look beyond the initial specification to the application and the associated physical demands.  Our in-depth expertise comes from both engineering qualifications and from long years of experience of cylinder repair and manufacture.

Hydraulic Cylinder Design Testing

Cylinder operates its own unique and internally designed high pressure testing rig. However, the software we use to develop our designs also allows us to pre-test before we have even built the unit.  Designs can be run through a range of operational scenarios to develop the optimum end design which is the most robust we can achieve given the cost and space constraints we have to work with.  This means that when physical testing takes place we are not testing the design, but the final integrity of the parts and assembly.
