A hydraulic cylinder is a mechanical actuator used to provide unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke. Hydraulic hydraulic cylinder china cylinders are found in almost every sector and so are available in a number of configurations. The two main types of hydraulic cylinders are Tie-rod and Welded. Each one of these cylinder types can possess unique applications because of their styles. Tie-rod cylinders are usually installed in light to medium duty applications and tend to be designed to become repaired or re-loaded if required.
