M&R Hydraulics provides a complete re-manufacturing and repair service for hydraulic cylinders or rams, pistons, rods and cylinder tubes of all makes.
Maintenance of hydraulic cylinders or rams are sometimes forgotten – these cylinders provide the muscle to a wide range of industrial equipment and applications. The massive amount of power that results from hydraulic fluids flowing into and out of a well-engineered hydraulic cylinder are critical components in many different industries such as construction, demolition, metal recycling, mining, transport etc.
Despite being well-engineered components, regular maintenance is necessary if catastrophic failure and unexpected repairs are to be avoided.
Some tell-tale signs that maintenance or refurbishment of the cylinder is necessary include:-
• Hydraulic fluid leakage
• Loss of power
• Banging noises
• Juddering / irregular movement
We have fully equipped workshops containing all the equipment to safely dismantle and inspect a variety of cylinder sizes of 11+ meters & a max cylinder bore of 1 meter. Because we always carry stocks of hard chrome-plated rod and honed bored cylinder tube, repairs can be carried out without delay, providing a fast, reliable and highly cost-effective solution.
Our investment in precision engineering machines means we can provide a complete re-manufacturing service for hydraulic pistons, rods and cylinder tubes of all makes. Our cylinder re-manufacturing or repair service is supported by our experienced engineers, time-served machinists and project managers who will ensure that your equipment is installed and tested to the highest operational standards.
Repairs of the following cylinder manufacturers are regularly undertaken:-
