A hydraulic cylinder is a mechanical actuator used to provide unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke. Hydraulic cylinders are used in almost every sector and are available in a number of configurations. Both primary types of hydraulic cylinders are Tie-rod and Welded. Each one of these cylinder types can possess Hyd Cylinder unique applications because of their styles. Tie-rod cylinders are usually installed in light to moderate duty applications and are generally designed to become repaired or re-loaded if necessary. Welded cylinders are made for most applications and are more technical in style but are usually 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 in an application.
