Hydraulic Cylinder Repair

Hydraulic cylinder repair involves the restoration and maintenance of hydraulic cylinders, which are critical components used in various applications such as construction equipment, manufacturing machinery, and industrial systems. Advanced Precision Machine is here to make sure this all happens for you.

  1. Assessment and Diagnosis: The first step in repairing a hydraulic cylinder is to assess its condition and identify the underlying issues. An experienced technician will inspect the cylinder for leaks, damage, worn-out components, or any other signs of malfunction.

  2. Disassembly: Once the assessment is complete, the hydraulic cylinder needs to be disassembled carefully. The technician will remove the cylinder from the equipment and take it apart, separating the piston, rod, seals, and other components.

  3. Cleaning and Inspection: The disassembled components are thoroughly cleaned to remove dirt, debris, and contaminants. Each part is inspected for signs of wear, corrosion, or damage. Critical measurements are taken to assess dimensional accuracy and determine if any parts need replacement.

  4. Replacement of Components: If any components are found to be damaged, worn, or non-functional during the inspection, they are replaced with new ones. This may include seals, O-rings, piston rods, bearings, and other internal parts. It's essential to use high-quality replacement components to ensure the longevity and performance of the hydraulic cylinder.

  5. Reassembly: After replacing the necessary components, the hydraulic cylinder is reassembled carefully. The technician ensures that all parts fit together correctly, aligning the piston, rod, and seals properly. Lubrication may be applied to ensure smooth movement and prevent friction.

  6. Testing and Adjustment: Once the hydraulic cylinder is reassembled, it undergoes testing to ensure its functionality and performance. This may involve pressurizing the cylinder and checking for leaks, verifying proper movement and alignment, and testing the cylinder's ability to handle the intended load and pressure. If necessary, adjustments are made to optimize performance.


It's worth noting that complex or extensive hydraulic cylinder repairs may require specialized equipment and expertise like welding and re-machining the shaft or cylinder. In such cases, it's recommended to rely on experienced professionals or hydraulic repair shops to ensure accurate repairs and proper functioning of the hydraulic cylinder.  That’s where we come in!
