RAMLOK Wirelock Cylinders

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   March 17, 2021 08:00

RAMLOK Wirelock Cylinders

RAMLOK® Wirelock hydraulic cylinders are one of RAM’s unique cylinder offerings. These cylinders incorporate RAMLOK steel rings to secure the barrel to the head and base. This assembly approach eliminates the welding process.

 

With the head and the base being secured using the RAMLOK Wirelock design, there are many advantages regarding ease of maintenance and repair of the cylinders. Some of these advantages include: 

  • Accessing seals is quick and easy by removing the steel ring.
  • Replacing parts is more economical as only the parts affected need to be replaced.
  • Flexibility to change the port position in the field with a range of position options.

RAM has 65 standard RAMLOK Wirelock cylinders designs available. The experienced engineering team at RAM can also work with your team to customize a RAMLOK cylinder specifically for your application requirements.

Integrated Cylinder Mounting Solutions

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   February 23, 2021 08:00

Integrated Cylinder Mounting Solutions

 Your cylinder mount is a critical component of your hydraulic system design. RAM has over 45 years’ experience producing cylinders with custom mounting options to fit your OEM equipment precisely.

Integrate ports and valves into your cylinder mount for a distinct space-saving solution. A consolidated mount provides a streamlined design by reducing the cross-section to fit into confined spaces.

Integrated cylinder mounts also provide valve and porting location flexibility. Designs can place these mounts on the butt end shaft of the cylinder

This integration simplifies the overall hydraulic circuitry resulting in fewer components and a faster final assembly. Valves ‘hard plumbed’ into the cylinder also reduce the likelihood of catastrophic connection failures.

Match the cylinder mount to your OEM equipment to ensure longevity and prevent failure. RAM’s engineers work with your team’s experts to ensure your cylinder design provides optimal performance and safety.

Choose a custom engineered hydraulic cylinder solution to give your equipment a leading-edge!

RAM Cylinder Shaft Solutions

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   November 24, 2020 08:00

 Hydraulic Cylinder Shaft Materials

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!
