When load handling equipment is used, the hydraulic cylinder may need to reliably hold the load. Steels must be selected to suit this application and pistons and end fittings must be designed accordingly.
Commercially available hydraulic cylinders are often unsuitable for use in load handling equipment. These cylinders are designed for use in machines, the steels used are not approved for use as load handling devices, and the end fittings do not fit.
AXZION-GKS has the appropriate machining equipment and manufactures the large lifting cylinders itself. The lifting points are dimensioned to suit the load handling equipment and the seals are sourced from qualified suppliers. Of course, these cylinders are also tested and approved. For example, the hydraulic cylinders for use in offshore applications are tested together with and approved by the GL-DNV.
Delivery times for large hydraulic cylinders are often very long. Axzion can help at short notice through its own production and supply the appropriate replacement.
