Taking hydraulic hoses to the extreme

18 September, 2020

Material handling is tough, and it demands even tougher machines. Whether it’s telehandlers, concrete sprayers or aerial lifts, boom-equipped machinery takes on some of the most punishing tasks in industries worldwide. That makes robustness and flexibility absolutely crucial for the hydraulic hoses at the heart of these applications.

Linear actuators the preferred solution for agricultural OEMs

15 September, 2020

The H-Track electro-hydraulic actuator from Thomson Industries comprises a motor, pump and valves that are integrated into a mini power pack mounted onto the cylinder. This allows completely self-contained hydraulic actuation without the need for external pipework. Claimed to be able to exert forces up to 22 kN and designed to be particularly robust, the power-dense HTrack offers the required performance too.

Hydrocam hydraulic bolt tensioners remove uncertainty from couplings

Uniflex P250 special test bench with integrated rotary feed-through

01 September, 2020

Many technical applications are so specific that there are no machines off-the-peg that fit the bill. In these cases, special solutions are needed while, ideally, also being competitive on price. For Uniflex, its ability to provide these types of solutions to the hose & fittings marketplace been the basis of steady growth for the company since it was first established 48 years ago: Its solutions are ideal for special jobs such as the patented slide bearing technology for lubrication-free hydraulic crimpers. So, when a customer asked for a test bench for rotating hydraulic connections which are, for instance, used in hose drums of telescopic cranes, in booms of excavators or logging grabs in forestry technology, it was clear to Uniflex that it would be able to face this challenge.

Apex manufactures specialist cylinder with integral linear transducer

25 August, 2020

One of Apex Hydraulics’ clients recently requested a replacement cylinder for a large application in the Republic of Ireland. The project was a linkspan for a ferry port, with the cylinder being required for a Roll On, Roll Off Road. This allows a road to extend out to the car ferry when it docks at a port, rather than extending a ferry door down onto the port. The linkspan utilises two cylinders, working as a pair, although only one needed replacing.
