Hydraulic Cylinder Overhaul

High-pressure hydraulic cylinders need to be resilient and long-lasting to cope with high static and dynamic forces across many industrial purposes such as lifting or jacking, pushing, pulling, or pressing. Due to the vast applications and frequency of use of hydraulic cylinders across industries, reconditioning pistons and parts is a vital part of lifecycle management.

In comparison to traditional hard chrome plating, reconditioning with superior super alloy coating applied with an advanced hard-facing laser cladding process has far greater and longer lasting results increasing the lifecycle. Additionally, laser cladding is a more efficient and safer alternative to traditional hard chrome plating. Known carcinogen hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] is a byproduct of hard chromium plating production and should be avoided with safer alternatives.

Hydraulic cylinders come in a range of sizes to suit the requirements of a range of industry applications.
