Hydraulic Cylinders

When it comes to Hydraulic cylinder design and manufacture Apex Hydraulics are at the forefront of the UK industry. At Apex we understand the crucial role Hydraulic Cylinders (also known as Hydraulic rams) play in today’s leading industries. For this reason we insist on making excellent service, high quality products and skilled craftsmanship foundational to our ethos. Whatever the sector or field from offshore mining to steel manufacturing Apex commits to producing Cylinders and Hydraulic Rams that will outperform those of our competitors. Our bespoke design service provides individual solutions for your specific requirements whilst our highly efficient processes ensure we deliver excellent lead times saving you costly downtime.

Hydraulic Rams Designed by the Experts

Apex’s comprehensive bespoke design and manufacture service means our expert team will tailor a cylinder that will meet your exact specifications and will best serve the required application. Our design team is ISO 9001 certified, which means we are able to carry out modifications to improve existing designs so you are never restricted to a set design or standard model. Excellence and innovation are at the core of Apex’s expert technical team; the result is exceptional service every time.

Innovative Industry Solutions

Here at Apex we understand the arduous conditions much of your Hydraulic equipment has to endure. High usage and harsh environmental conditions both contribute to the pressure many cylinders face. Impact, corrosion, wear and galling are common causes of Cylinder damage and failure, even where traditional Hard Chrome Coatings (HCCs) have been applied for protection. As a solution here at Apex we have developed our own superior solution to HCC, Corex. Corex hydraulic cylinder coating is exclusive to Apex and is proven to outperform traditional HCCs, increase cylinder life and minimise potential damage.

  • Every ram is tailored exactly to your specific requirements
  • We never ‘make fit’ an unsuitable cylinder because it’s from our standard range
  • Rams are available with a variety of valve applications
  • Innovative protective coatings are available for critical cylinders and those under harsh conditions (Corex)
  • Different paint specifications are available to suit the cylinders environment
