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

Piggy-back Hydraulic Cylinders

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   October 20, 2020 08:05

RAM Piggy-back cylinders are two cylinders that are welded or yoked together in opposite directions. This cylinder design is very effective to provide maximum stroke in areas where space is constrained. 

For applications that require a shorter retraction length, these cylinders can double the stroke available while maintaining consistent force for the full extension and retraction.

There are many advantages of building your equipment with Piggy-back style cylinders:

• Useful in light to heavy duty applications

• Better retraction forces

• Simplified seal kits with consistent barrel diameter

• Pressure ratings up to 5000 PSI

• Barrel fed cylinders can incorporate smart sensors

RAM is well versed in the latest technologies in cylinder componentry, cylinder design and manufacturing methods ensuring your cylinder functions exactly as required.

RAM's expertise is in supplying cylinders that are specifically engineered for your application. A wide range of materials, sizes (bore & stroke), and mounting options are available for RAM Piggy-back cylinders.

Smart Sensing Hydraulic Cylinder Solutions

posted by RAM Industries Inc.    |   October 20, 2020 08:00

RAM Industries is attentive to how technological advancements in fluid power is increasing demand for automated control and functionality in mobile hydraulic applications. The use of hydraulic cylinders equipped with position sensors is becoming increasingly popular in a wide range of industries, from lighter duty agricultural applications, to heavy duty construction and mining equipment.

Referred to by different names such as: electronic position-sensing, electro-hydraulic control, intelligent cylinders and smart cylinders; this technology utilizes linear transducers (sensors) to communicate a cylinder’s piston position back to the overall hydraulic system.

There are numerous advantages of incorporating smart sensors into hydraulic cylinders used on mobile equipment.

• Road construction equipment is enabled to automatically adjust grader equipment to the precise ground profile required, as well as control the depth of a cut on a scraper.

• Agriculture applications benefit from uniformity that is provided through maintaining a constant height level on boom sprayers or combines and swathers. Uniformity is also achieved through controlling depth of placement in seeding equipment.

• GPS controlled steering ensures equipment maintains a very straight line, and maintain an exact distance from the last pass. This minimizes overlap or miss which results in greater efficiencies.

• Many lifting applications benefit from this position sensing technology through bucket position control. When raising the lift structure, there is a leveling effect that automatically adjusts the tilt, while providing increased height control.

• Gate sensing applications automatically adjust the gate height for the output of materials such as salt or sand in road maintenance. The sensors provide feedback on the output based on factors, such as speed of the vehicle, to support more consistent output.

• Sensors help ensure equipment such as cranes or trailers are level. This is helpful to confirm the equipment is stabilized. In addition, position sensors can communicate to the operator when it is safe to move only when stabilizers or outriggers are disengaged.

• Further developments in this technology equip some applications with a “home button” that enables the equipment to return to default positioning. 

An added benefit of smart sensing hydraulic cylinders is preventing operator fatigue. The operator is able to focus on running the equipment rather than manually reviewing and adjusting various settings of the equipment. Use smart sensing hydraulic cylinders on your equipment as a competitive advantage!

RAM understands the high demands placed on hydraulic cylinder performance in mobile applications. The assessment of your equipment's operating environment is important, as RAM’s expertise is in supplying cylinders that are specifically engineered for your application.

All of RAM’s hydraulic cylinders are manufactured using high quality materials that are selected specific to the applications in which they will be used. In environments where there are temperature extremes or high corrosion conditions, specialized materials such as nitride rods and high or low temp seals can be utilized. Custom rod bellows are available to protect cylinders from chips, grit, dust and other abrasive particles.

RAM smart sensor hydraulic cylinders incorporate position sensing technologies for OEM equipment in any RAM single stage hydraulic cylinder. As a custom hydraulic cylinder manufacturer, RAM Industries has the expertise designing and manufacturing smart sensing hydraulic cylinders with a variety of digital and analogue outputs. External or internal sensors can be incorporated depending on the use of the cylinders. An assortment of bore sizes, stroke lengths, and mounting options can be configured to meet your overall design and industry needs.

RAM is well-versed in the latest technologies in materials, cylinder componentry, cylinder design and manufacturing methods to ensure your cylinders function exactly as required!
