Project Overview

We were approached by a well known aircraft manufacturer to assist with a problem they were having during wing production. The modified cylinders below have been modified to provide slight angular movement while extending.

The following work was done..

  • We were called in to trouble-shoot the problem the manufacturer was having during wing production.
  • Hydraulic cylinders were needed to assist in the removal of components during the manufacturing process.
  • The main problem was they needed slight angular movement whilst extending out.
  • A solution was needed so we worked around the problem.
  • We came up with a system which used modified ENERPAC Cylinders to overcome the problems.
  • A modified plunger and base attachments were designed and manufactured by Armstrong Lyon.
  • Swivel feet fitted to both ends of the cylinders.
  • The cylinders used were ENERPAC RC53, RC55 and RC59.
  • The finished products were tested thoroughly from start to finish.
  • Customer satisfaction was guaranteed.
