The requirements for industrial hydraulic cylinders vary depending on the ambient conditions in the place of application:
No matter under which conditions a hydraulic cylinder should work for you, we make it possible. With a complete system that is custom-made for your requirements.
Hänchen offers services that go far beyond the product "industrial hydraulic cylinder":
Passion for high-quality hydraulic cylinders needs a basis of accuracy down to the last detail. Our cylinder production makes no compromises on quality, giving you every reason to choose Hänchen products:
80 % Vertical Integration.
100 % Made in Germany.
100 % Quality.
The high surface quality and geometrical accuracy of the component parts of every single Hänchen cylinder guarantee a long life time without failure.
For the best lubrication and running properties and as little wear as possible on cylinders and seals, the cylinders' sliding surfaces are refined with a cross-hatch finish.
The constant development of our sealing systems - by combining already marketed and in-house developed seals - optimise our cylinders regarding wear, friction and leakage.
The guide clearance must be neither too small nor too large. This is why Hänchen places so much importance on optimal accuracy. The result is reduced stress on the guide and thus less wear on the component parts.
The fewer component parts a cylinder has, the less accident-prone it is. And the simpler and safer maintenance and installation is. The three main parts of a Hänchen cylinder:
In Hänchen products, piston and piston rod are inseparably joined. The piston is coated with non-ferrous metal, enabling a precise metallic guide. The sophisticated rod ends with rounded edges permit a sealfriendly installation.
Round-head design, inseparably welded to the cylinder mounting. Drilled ports permit a space-saving installation with many options for adjustment to various applications.
A stick-slip-free cover type that is perfectly coordinated to the requirements is crucial for the service life of the entire cylinder. Special feature: The synthetic guide is permanently integrated, reaches a better load distribution and minimises the risk of scratches caused by dirt particles.
For the perfect combination, the cover type with the best sealing and guiding system* with matching piston rod quality and the right sealing material is selected based on your application.
We'll tune your hydraulic cylinder. Tell us what you need – only
those who set conditions get the perfect industrial actuator.
Whether sensitive, free-moving or robust – the strength of Hänchen cylinders is in their extreme adaptability.
Depending on what you need, we offer you the right cover type with optimal friction force for your static or dynamic application.
Values measured on the double-rod cylinder (bore 46 mm without seal, rod Ø 40 mm) during sine operation according to VDMA 24577 at 50 °C/HLPD46.
The level of the friction force curves is lower than usual on the market.
Beside the selected cover type, the right piston design is also crucial for the dynamic movement of the cylinder.
If the cylinder is to be held in position under load for a longer period of time during operation, the rectangular compact seal can be equipped with a static elastomer seal for load-holding function. This prevents possible lowering of the piston rod.
