Selecting the right seals is a critical step when it comes to quality and reliable Hydraulic Cylinders. With RAM Industries you can be confident in knowing only the best seals are used based on your specific performance requirements. We work closely with each customer, and always ensure the best suited seals are used for the application and environment the cylinders are being used. Only North American seals are used in all RAM Hydraulic Cylinders.

 Each seal type has a specific function, as does each cylinder design. Our team of experts know the most appropriate seals for each application and cylinder type. Thorough in-house evaluation and testing, as well as over 75 years combined engineering experience with legacy products, guarantees the correct seals and brands are specified for the application.

Some of the factors we consider are:

  • Industry
  • Longevity
  • Application
  • Material base
  • High or no shock loads
  • Resilience to atmospheric conditions
  • Economics vs. performance

You can trust the expertise of RAM Industries to provide seal solution when it comes to your Hydraulic Cylinder solutions.

Seamless Hydraulic Cylinder Solutions!

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   June 8, 2020 08:00

RAM Industries has over 45 years’ experience working with Original Equipment Manufacturers, helping

them with seamless solutions when making cylinder changes.

 

RAM understands implementing RAM cylinders requires a collaborative effort with your team - purchasing,

engineering, production, and customer service. At RAM, we have the expertise to assist you with choosing

cylinder transition approach that ensures continuity for your internal processes and end users.

 

Choose the strategy that works best for your business:

 

1. "Fit & Function" Interchangeability

New RAM cylinders will have the same outside dimensions and mounts to seamlessly fit and function

without any changes to your equipment.

 

2. "Soft" Interchangeability - ALL the benefits of "Fit & Function" interchangeability, PLUS a

universal seal kit that includes all required seals for both the new and legacy cylinders.

 

3. "Full" Interchangeability - A complete match of every part and component of the existing

cylinders are incorporated into the new RAM cylinders.

 

Contact the RAM team of experts today to make your SEAMLESS switch to RAM Hydraulic Cylinders!

Synchronized Hydraulic Cylinder Solutions

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   June 8, 2020 08:00

 

 

RAM  Industries synchronized hydraulic cylinders are the perfect solution for applications that require

multiple cylinder strokes to be perfectly synchronized.

 

There are many applications in a variety of industries that operate with a synchronized series of hydraulic

cylinders, required to operate in tandem.

 

Some examples include:

 

-          Agriculture – Tillage Equipment, Bale Haulers

-          Transportation – Truck bed hard covers

-          Industrial – Tables, Conveyors

-          Stage Productions – Backdrops, Stages

 

These synchronizing hydraulic cylinders include one master and one or more slave cylinders with a built in

rephasing provision. RAM synchronizing hydraulic cylinders are pressure rated up to 3000 PSI, bore sizes

are available in ¼” increments from 1 ½” to 6” and standard strokes go up to 24”.

 

All RAM hydraulic cylinders can be customized to perfectly fit your equipment requirements. Adding a depth

control valve assembly will provide precise and infinite control of the rod movement.


Contact the RAM team today to let our Engineering team design a synchronizing cylinder set for your application!

Telescopic Hydraulic Cylinder Solutions

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   November 17, 2019 15:17

RAM Telescopic cylinders are the perfect solution for applications that need a long cylinder stroke from a very compact cylinder length. This unique capability is achieved by incorporating 5 moving stages in the telescopic cylinder design.

Single Acting telescopic cylinders are extended using hydraulic pressure, but are retracted using external forces (i.e. gravity or mechanical load) once the pressure is removed. If your load never goes over center, and is always under compression, then the Single Acting Telescopic cylinder may be the right fit for you!

While the Single Acting Telescopic is the simplest of all telescopic cylinder types, the design must still be robust enough to handle your equipment requirements.

RAM offers a full line of standard telescopic designs for OEM applications. A wide array of mounting options are available to ensure they will fit perfectly in your application.

RAM Single Acting Telescopic cylinder designs feature a large internal bearing area for each stage that better handles side loading and prevents premature wear. Other features of our RAM Telescopic cylinders include:

  • High strength steel construction
  • Hard chrome plated – precision honed tubing
  • High pressure seals
  • Multiple bleed port locations
  • High quality steel shipping plugs
  • Two part urethane paint finish
  • Rated pressure up to 3000 PSI
  • 100% full cycle tested

RAM also offers custom Telescopic cylinders. Our engineering experts work with you to determine the cylinder design requirements that perfectly suit your equipment fit and performance requirements. Custom telescopic cylinders can bedesigned with up to 5 stages, and pressure ratings up to 5000 PSI.

Contact the experts at RAM today to find the right Telescopic hydraulic cylinder solution for you!

RAM Cylinder Shaft Solutions

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   November 17, 2019 15:02

 

RAM provides expertise and guidance on a wide range of shaft materials available and best suited to your requirements to improve your cylinder and equipment performance.

Shaft selection is important to help maximize cylinder performance on your equipment. Key considerations include:

  • Operating environment
  • Cylinder exposure
  • Implication of a shaft failure
  • Shaft material cost

Two common shaft materials include:

 Hard Chrome Plated Shaft

  • A carbon steel-based material with an outer layer of chromium plate
  • Hard surface for longer wear of the shaft
  • Smooth travel surface for the seal which improves seal life
  • Variations include – induction hardened shaft, multi-layered plated shaft, and plated stainless-steel shaft

Nitrided Shaft

  • A chemical and heat process that diffuses nitrogen into the shaft material
  • The non-porous surface provides corrosion resistance for continuous exposure to the environment
  • Better suited for tension applications over high compression applications
  • Variations include – standard or polished nitrided shaft

 To learn more about other shaft materials for your cylinder solutions, contact the RAM team of experts today!
