Lightraulics composite hydraulic cylinders For operating pressures up to 380 bar.
Composite hydraulic components from Parker.
The advent of carbon fiber composite materials has opened up new opportunities for making lightweight yet extremely strong components.
In design, even in recent times, composite materials were used exclusively as reinforcement to lighten steel components. However, the weight reduction thus achieved was small, while the design features continued to be limited by the strength of the remaining metal components used.
Drawing on more than 15 years of experience in the development of composite materials, Parker has designed hydraulic cylinders and accumulators with liners made entirely of composite materials.
