One year after its release, the carbon hydraulic cylinder “Composite trimmer” has a successful market response which has just been rewarded by the Alfred Sauvy innovation Award. A “Composite trimmer” is composed of a carbon cylinder (filament winding technology), tie rods made in textile (PBO fibers or pure carbon), a hollow rod in titanium with a going through textile strope to transmit the hauling forces. This innovation is protected by a patent. Those hydraulic cylinders are perfectly suited for applications where big strokes are needed and weight is a critical issue. The range of products goes from single and double acting cylinders to double rods cylinders (to translate travelers’ cars on rails) and cylinders with integrated reeving systems (2 or 4 strands)… Weight reduction factors from 2 up to 10 times in comparison with conventional aluminum products. Pistons’ diameters: 45 / 60 / 80 / 105. Working pressures up to 200 bars (2900 psi). Feel free to contact Tenderlift for any request you could have, there is always a solution!
