  • Small Aluminum Hydraulic Cylinders

    In college my friends and I would tend to go to the recreation facilities and work out a couple times a week. The recreation center also happened to be connected to the gymnasium where various events would take place on any given day. One weekend as we were approaching the gym, we noticed that there was a robotics competition and convention was going on so we stopped in to see if there were any cool robots that we could see. Walking around the place many people were working their robots...

  • A Jack of All Trades

    My buddy's car has been acting up lately so I went with him to the hardware store to buy a car jack. The plan was, he was going to lift his car up, crawl underneath and figure out what was wrong. Unlike me he actually knows a few things about cars. Well, we picked up a cheap jack and went back home to try it out. I still don't know what was wrong with the car but he fixed it and is driving it around again. Today, most car jacks...

  • The Mechanized Maul

    There are many different types of hydraulic machines. From large excavators to hydraulic rams, all hydraulic machines offer both strength and agility when performing their varies tasks. In our modern world even the simplest tasks such as log splitting can be/are industrialized. Log splitters are perhaps one of the most basic hydraulic machines available. Splitting logs can be a physically demanding task. This is especially true if you just finished cutting a tree down. Log splitters make the whole splitting process a breeze. However, the machines can be pretty dangerous....

  • Hydraulic Brakes: Providing a Smother and Faster Stop

    Whenever I pick up too much speed on my rollerblades I'll veer onto the grass in attempt to put some friction on my wheels. Once I hit grass, I start tripping and do a falling run until I either regain my balance or fail to best my momentum and bite the dust. I realize there are brakes on most rollerblades but my falling method works so much better. Cars on the other hand, utilize a much more complex system to stop momentum. The more powerful a vehicle is, the more...

    Hydraulic cylinders play a valuable role in any type of heavy manufacturing equipment. The role of a hydraulic cylinder is to manage the movements and activities of machine attachments and linkages. These cylinders can provide a forceful output creating results in any job. Hydraulic cylinders are made up of many parts that all work together to get results. These parts are the cylinder barrel, cylinder head, piston rod, piston, seals, cushion, rod gland, cylinder base connection and the cylinder base. Small hydraulic cylinders are still very powerful, but they can...

Industry Information

Small Hydraulic Cylinders

Small hydraulic cylinders serve the same purpose as standard or heavy duty hydraulic cylinders: to convert hydraulic pressure into linear force and motion. In this sense, they may be referred to as an actuator. While hydraulic cylinders can have strokes that measure several feet in length, a small hydraulic cylinder has a much smaller stroke, often less than an inch in length.

Small hydraulic cylinders are characterized by their small size and short stroke length. Stroke length is the distance that the hydraulic piston reaches at its fully extended state, and in some cylinders such as telescopic hydraulic cylinders, the stroke length of a piston can be much longer than the size of the cylinder. Small hydraulic cylinders, like other cylinders have the same main parts: the outer cylinder barrel and the hydraulic piston and piston rod which is used to force the piston through the cylinder. A hydraulic cylinder works because of the pressure built up by the hydraulic fluid inside the cylinder. This hydraulic fluid is typically a type of oil, or in some cylinders, water is used instead. The piston moves this liquid creating kinetic energy and pressure which is then used to create linear force. In small hydraulic cylinders, the rod gland and rod wear ring are often composed of a single part. Due to the compact size of the interior of the cylinder, there is no extra space for multiple moving parts and therefore this helps to conserve space.


The cylinder must be sealed to contain this build-up of pressure and to ensure it is directed in the area of its intended output. Furthermore, the cylinder itself must be able to withstand the pressure and therefore is commonly built of a strong and durable metal such as steel or aluminum.  Although they retain all the capabilities of larger hydraulic cylinders, with less power output and range of motion, small hydraulic cylinders are typically used in applications such as military instrument construction or robotics, which require high precision.  Other uses include the steering mechanisms in domestic appliances such as lawnmowers, appliances on recreational vehicles and some waste equipment. Specialized small hydraulic cylinders are able to be designed and constructed, and can also be single acting or double acting according to the way in which the pistons move to create push and pull power, and whether or not they can extend and retract.  The piston is typically coated with a corrosion and wear resistant material such as chrome in order to ensure the longevity of the operation power. However, hydraulic systems still need to be cared for and maintained, and the hydraulic fluid may have to be replaced or refilled from time to time for optimum operating capacity.
