Lightweight Hydraulics - Delivering Higher Productivity

In a steel mill or similar application, a hydraulic cylinder has to be rugged, low cost and low maintenance.  Weight is unimportant. In an aerial lifting application, though, every kilogram saved means greater payload, lower fuel consumption and higher productivity. Between these two ends of the spectrum, there is a trade-off between weight and cost which differs for each application. In addition to higher productivity, reduced weight can mean easier, safer handling; quicker, lower-cost maintenance or lighter, simpler mounting structures.
