A Custom Hydraulic Cylinder from Best Metal Products May Be Right for Your Application

There are some instances where it is okay to use a off-the-rack, standard hydraulic cylinder. However, in many others it is critical that you have a custom hydraulic cylinder designed and manufactured to meet the exact specifications and needs for your equipment and application. In this post, we will discuss custom hydraulic cylinder and why they may be the right choice for your equipment and machinery.

Generally speaking, a basic hydraulic cylinder is made of the following main components – barrel, base or cap, head, piston, and piston rod, seal gland, and seals.  When you need a custom hydraulic cylinder, these components can vary in composition, size, and material used. When you choose customization instead of standard, you will be able to work with our engineers to develop the perfect custom hydraulic cylinder that will meet the exact needs of your machinery – allowing it work as effectively and efficiently as possible.
