A hydraulic cylinder is a mechanical actuator used to supply unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke. Hydraulic cylinders are found in almost every industry and are hydraulic cylinder china available in a variety of configurations. Both main types of hydraulic cylinders are Tie-rod and Welded. Each one of these cylinder types can have unique applications because of their styles. Tie-rod cylinders are usually installed in light to medium duty applications and tend to be designed to end up being repaired or re-loaded if required. Welded cylinders are made for most applications and so are more complex in style but are generally more difficult to correct due to the welded style. Welded cylinders are usually a better solution because of their compact design so when a more robust design is important within an application.
