Telescopic Hydraulic Cylinder Solutions

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   November 24, 2020 08:01

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.

RAM Cylinder Shaft Solutions

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

 

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!
