Texas Hydraulics offers position-sensing hydraulic cylinders suitable for applications that require a high level of accuracy and repeatability. Designed to meet construction industry demands of extreme pressure, temperature, vibration, shock, and contamination, the cylinders offer contact-less sensing and are capable of handling operating pressures up to 5000 psi (345 bar). The construction-grade cylinders feature a cycle fatigue resistance design using forged end mounts, high-performance sealing, and induction-hardened rods. The bolted head improves serviceability, and the buffer seals extend life. Cylinders can be customized with various options including position sensing, valve integration, nickel plating for corrosion resistance, and induction-hardened rods. Texas Hydraulics manufactures its cylinders using a friction welder and a solid-state welding process that generates heat through mechanical friction between a moving workpiece and a stationary component, with the addition of a lateral force to displace and fuse the materials.
