All of our hydraulic services are governed by our quality assurance system which is complaint with and certifed to: BS-EN-ISO-9001:2008

Hydraulic Cylinder Design and Manufacturing

It may seem odd to describe manufacturing as a service, but for short runs, or one-off supplies for cylinder replacements, or for special applications, the work we do for our customers is very much a service.

Our customers come to us for our technical knowledge as well as as our enginering expertise and we offer an end-to-end service that is for many customers is a packaged solution.

We are often approached with a design and manufacturing problem that we have to solve. Our advanced design facility allows speedy encapsulation of the problem so that prospective solutions can be mapped out and costs quickly established. We can then move onto manufacture, test and filling and pressurisation.

Hydraulic Cylinder Repair

Hydraulic cylinder repair is not just one thing. We repair a very wide range of cylinders from small devices you can hold in your hand to huge assemblies that require dedicated transport.

We have a extensive range of specialist equipment to support this work that includes:

  • Centre lathe turning up to 12 metres Machine Work / Heat Treatment
  • Horizontal boring, Milling, Slotting, CNC turning & Grinding
  • Honing up to 650mm x 7000 stroke
  • Coded welding (Stainless, Aluminium, Bronze & Cast Iron)
  • Power presses up to 350 tons
  • Hydraulic test rigs up to 1000 bar & Horizontal load test rigs
  • A unique 150,000 ft-lb hydraulic Stripping rig
  • Shot blasting & finishing plant
  • Overhead cranage to 26 tons
  • Deep hole boring to 750mm diameter x 6000mm deep
  • Metal spraying of all types of materials
  • Cylindrical & surface grinding
  • 16 meter horizontal pull/push hydraulic press

Some of this equipment is completely unique such as the stripping rig and the test rigs. This is because they have been developed in-house to suit the specialist needs we have in our repair work. This allows us to successfully tackle many repairs that other hydraulic specialists simply have to turn away.
