A hydraulic cylinder is a mechanical Hyd Cylinder actuator used to provide unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke. Hydraulic cylinders are used in almost every industry and are available in a number of configurations. The two main types of hydraulic cylinders are Tie-rod and Welded. Each of these cylinder types can have unique applications due to their styles. Tie-rod cylinders are usually set up in light to moderate duty applications and are generally designed to be repaired or re-packed if required. Welded cylinders are made for most applications and so are more technical in style but are usually more difficult to repair because of the welded design. Welded cylinders are typically a better solution due to their compact design so when a more robust style is important within an application.
