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 Hyd Cylinder number of configurations. Both primary types of hydraulic cylinders are Tie-rod and Welded. Each of these cylinder types can possess unique applications due to their styles. Tie-rod cylinders are usually set up in light to moderate duty applications and are generally designed to be repaired or re-packed if required. Welded cylinders are created 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 typically a better solution due to their compact design so when a more robust style is important within an application.
