A Hänchen hydraulic actuator is characterized by:
  • extremely long service life
  • high control accuracy
  • space-saving construction
  • high efficiency
  • very little wear and tear
  • extremely long service intervals

Industrial hydraulic cylinder
Industrial hydraulic actuators offer a number of advantages

The essential advantage of industrial hydraulic cylinders is their ability to continuously and simultaneously provide full power at full speed - without any negative effects on the service life. All cylinders of Hänchen's 120 and 300 series also feature a characteristic compact construction.
Hydraulic cylinders of the 120 and 300 series
Standard hydraulic cylinder according to DIN and ISO
Mounting dimensions according to DIN 24336 or DIN ISO 6020/6022
To guarantee exchangeability between products from different manufacturers, standard cylinder for the pressure ranges 100 bar, 160 bar, and 250 bar can be used. Hänchen standard hydraulic cylinders comply with the required standard mounting dimensions - but their true strength is that they also meet Hänchen quality standards.

Servo hydraulic actuator
Hydraulic servo actuators with valves and sensor technology

Sensor technology such as force or position transducers allow very large operating areas. The selection of the right control strategy creates precise and highly dynamic hydraulic drives with extremely high energy densities.

Custom hydraulic cylinder - Extensions
Customized hydraulic cylinders - custom-tailored for you

Minor adjustments can often solve major problems. This is why customized products have almost become a standard for us. We make customized hydraulic cylinders quickly and without the prototype risk. Whenever possible, we use minor modifications of our modular standard elements to adapt them to your requirements as cost-effectively as possible.

Processing
Low friction. Low wear. Long life time.

The high surface quality and geometrical accuracy of the component parts of every single Hänchen cylinder guarantee a long life time without failure.

Honed surfaces

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.

Current sealing technology

The constant development of our sealing systems - by combining already marketed and in-house developed seals - optimise our cylinders regarding wear, friction and leakage.

 

A current sealing technology
H7/f7 – Clearance fit

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.

Design
Three components. One unit. Easy handling.

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:

Piston rod

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.

Cylinder tube

Round-head design, inseparably welded to the cylinder mounting. Drilled ports permit a space-saving installation with many options for adjustment to various applications.

Cover

A cover type perfectly adapted to the requirements is crucial for the life time of the entire cylinder. Special feature: The synthetic guide is permanently integrated, reaches a better load distribution and minimizes the risk of scratches caused by dirt particles.

Equipment in the cover
Unlimited possibilities.

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.

  • high temperatures in steel mills,
  • high stress in outdoor applications,
  • hygiene requirements in food processing,
  • tests in salt spray fog, in climatic chambers or in a lab:

Low level of friction force

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.

 

Friction in dependence on sealing and guiding system in the cover

Friction in dependence on sealing and guiding system in the cover

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.

Equipment on piston
The perfect sealing system on the piston

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.

 

Beside the selected cover type, the right piston is also crucial for the dynamic movement of the cylinder. We select the right piston for your cover type, exactly meeting your requirements.
