Why a Custom Hydraulic Cylinder May Be Right for Your Equipment

While in some cases it’s acceptable to use off-the-shelf types of hydraulic cylinders, in others it’s extremely important to have a custom hydraulic cylinder designed and manufactured to meet your exact specifications and needs. In this post, we will look at why a custom hydraulic cylinder may be the right choice for your machinery or equipment.

In general, 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-engineered hydraulic cylinder, these components can vary in composition, size, and material used.
