Why Choose A Custom Hydraulic Cylinder?

Choosing the right hydraulic cylinder for your equipment is a common occurrence. At Southern Hydraulic Cylinder, we recognize how important it is to match your equipment with the most suitable cylinder. While some machinery can utilize standard or off-the-shelf types, others cannot. For this latter group, we are always willing to work with our clients to produce a custom hydraulic cylinder.

Custom Hydraulic Cylinders

The basic hydraulic cylinder consists of the following parts:

  • Barrel
  • Bottom and bottom connection
  • Head
  • Piston and piston rod connection

However, with custom hydraulic cylinders, the engineer and customer work together to produce a version in accordance with precise specifications. Alterations may involve length, diameter or materials. They may affect the construction and/or design of the pistons, valves and valve manifolds. They can change port positions, mountings and even integrate functions.

With customization, you receive a hydraulic cylinder that addresses your concerns. Our engineers will collaborate closely with your company to ensure the result meets the explicit needs of your equipment. By designing according to your exacting specifications, we can create a cylinder that fits like the proverbial glove.
