Find definitions and explanations regarding the following hydraulic systems, machinery and components :
Found on many industrial and agricultural machines, the hydraulic cylinder is an actuator which allows to create a mechanical movement and exert significant pushing or pulling efforts.
The gas spring, sometimes referred to as “gas strut” or “gas shock”, consists of a cylindrical steel body containing a compressed gas (nitrogen) and a rod/piston sliding in a guide ring.
A hydraulic system, in hydromechanics, is a combination of components (shock absorbers, hydraulic cylinders…) using a pressurized fluid (oil for oleohydraulic systems) to perform mechanical work.
The test bench, also called “test stand”, is an industrial hydraulic system used to put a product in conditions of use, in order to observe and analyze its behavior.
Double acting cylinder
The double-acting cylinder is a hydraulic cylinder whose piston can move in both directions under the action of the pressurized fluid. It is the most commonly used cylinder in industry.
- Hydraulic jack
- Hydraulic press
