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!

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.

Hydraulic Cushioning Cylinder Solutions

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   July 26, 2019 11:08

Reducing the speed of a cylinder piston at the end of the stroke can be critical in some applications. RAM can incorporate hydraulic cushioning as part of a cylinder’s design. This feature can help reduce the stress on cylinder components and lesson vibration conveyed to other parts of equipment when operating at full force.

Careful evaluations by our experienced engineering staff determine the exact criteria to achieve the appropriate flow reduction. Factors that are evaluated include:

  • Maximum load that needs to be decelerated
  • Inertia and mass of the structure
  • Oil volume used in the application
  • Pressure rating of the equipment
  • Cycle time and frequency 

RAM’s engineering and machining expertise is demonstrated through the automated machining incorporating hydraulic cushions in our cylinders.

Holes are machined into the barrel, according to the cylinder design, to achieve the appropriate deceleration. Strategically placed port pass piston seals correspond to the hole locations to facilitate the restriction of oil flow. The hole location, number of holes, and piston seal placement and sizing are critical for every inch of motion. Hydraulic cushioning can be configured on both the extension and retraction ends of the cylinder.

RAM offers a few different standard cushioning configurations based on the applications the cylinder will be used on.

  • Basic applications requiring cushioning can use a design with two to four holes. A port block provides an oil channel to connect the multiple holes.
  • Applications with frequent or faster cycle time requirements may require a more complex configuration using multiple holes on the entire circumference of the barrel. An exterior steel tubing connects the internal oil channels and acts as an oil passage chamber to the port. This design allows for higher velocity cushioning and enables the cylinder to respond at a quicker rate.
  • Heavy-duty applications often use an internal configuration for cylinder cushioning. In this design the gland is machined with a precise chamber that forms a tight tolerance with a solid sleeve on the piston. A spud can also be incorporated on the end of the piston with a tight tolerance chamber in the cylinder base for double-ended cushioning.

Could your equipment benefit from the smoother stopping provided by hydraulic cushioning?

Contact the RAM team to discuss how we can incorporate hydraulic cushioning into cylinders for your projects.

Hydraulic Attachment Cylinder Solutions

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   July 26, 2019 10:42

 

Hydraulic attachment equipment is incredibly versatile. It is widely used in many applications including forestry, agriculture, mining and construction. While some attachments may be large and common, some can be small and very technical.

RAM offers many standard cylinder designs that can easily be incorporated into hydraulic attachments regardless of the application. RAM Thumb Cylinders are a great example of one cylinder solution we provide for hydraulic attachment equipment.

RAM’s engineering team also designs cylinders to work with highly specialized attachments. Our expertise will ensure the cylinder designs meet the unique criteria for any application.

Features frequently incorporated into RAM attachment cylinders includes:

  • Mounts with bearings and bushings minimize wear, provide ease of servicing and assist with alignment to minimize side loading;
  • Robust hydraulic cushions incorporated into both extension and retraction ends reduce jarring with smoother deceleration;
  • Porting located on one end with steel shields protects hoses from element exposure and makes hose routing easier
  • Bolt-in glands with high-tensile head bolts support heavy-duty applications
  • Custom seal packages include wear rings and specialized high-pressure seals
  • Smart sensor technology provides precision feedback for operation

RAM’s cylinders are specifically designed with reliable performance in mind. Our commitment to quality ensures your equipment will be equipped with reliable hydraulic cylinders to perform even under the most severe-duty conditions.
