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