Tie rod cylinders use high-strength threaded steel rods to hold the two end caps to the cylinder barrel.
This method of construction is most often seen in industrial factory applications. Small bore cylinders usually have 4 tie rods, while large bore cylinders may require as many as 16 or 20 tie rods in order to retain the end caps under the tremendous forces produced.
The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) has standardized the dimensions of hydraulic cylinders, enabling cylinders from different manufacturers to interchange within the same mountings. Tie rod style cylinders can be completely disassembled for service and repair.
Made here in the UK, our HOL-T series cylinders conform to the requirements of ISO 6020/2 – 1991, DIN 24554.
Their heavy-duty construction, wide range of mounting styles and customisable design features makes them suitable for a wide range of applications.
We can also supply custom design tie rod cylinders tailored to your specific application and operating parameters – just complete our Hydraulic Cylinder Design Form with as much detail as you can, and we’ll then be in touch to confirm your requirements in full.
