5 Ways to Maximize Cylinder Efficiency

At RAM Industries, we understand the importance of maximizing the efficiency of hydraulic cylinder designs to achieve optimal performance in OEM equipment. With our engineering expertise and custom designs, we offer cylinder solutions that accomplish these benefits and more.


One of the advantages of working with RAM is our ability to customize hydraulic cylinders for your application's specific requirements. We consider factors such as weight, speed, and frequency of operation to tailor the cylinder design to meet the exact needs of our customers. By doing so, we can help maximize the efficiency of the equipment, reduce energy consumption, and extend the cylinder and machinery lifespan.


Another benefit of choosing RAM for your hydraulic cylinder needs is our expertise in material selection. We understand the importance of using high-quality materials that withstand operating conditions and loads. Our team selects the suitable materials for the piston, rod, and cylinder tube to ensure maximum efficiency, reduce maintenance costs, and extend the lifespan of the equipment.


Our experience with seal design is also critical to achieving optimal performance and efficiency. We carefully recommend seal configurations that can withstand the operating conditions, pressures, and temperatures the cylinder will be exposed. This ensures that the cylinder operates efficiently, prevents fluid leakage, and protects the cylinder from contaminants that can cause equipment failure.


Choosing the right stroke length for the hydraulic cylinder is another key factor in achieving maximum efficiency. At RAM, we work closely with our customers to confirm the right stroke length ensuring that the cylinder does not waste energy moving past the load but can still lift the load to the desired height. This helps reduce energy consumption and improve the performance of the equipment.


Our team understands the importance of proper cylinder mounting. We work with your key personnel to ensure that the cylinder mounts specifically match your equipment designs allowing them to move freely and without resistance. This helps to prevent misalignment or binding, causing the cylinder to operate less efficiently, increasing energy consumption and reducing performance. Proper alignment and mounting of the cylinder can improve its efficiency, reduce energy consumption, and extend its lifespan.
