Engineering Tough Hydraulic Cylinder Applications,
Now That’s Aggressive.
Aggressive Hydraulics’ Design & Engineering team combines technology, sound engineering practices and empirically derived experience when tackling tough applications. The company’s “purpose-built” philosophy and team approach are key factors of its success in the industry.
Developing a “purpose-built” hydraulic cylinder solution takes the following important factors into consideration:
• System Design & Function Requirements
• Respective Industry Standards & Regulations
• Environmental Conditions
• Safety Factors
• Typical Load Conditions
• Material Selection
• Designed Duty Cycle
• Unique Performance Requirements
• Safety Interlocks
• Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
• Failure Analysis of Failed Item(s)
The core of Aggressive Hydraulics’ team has been working together for more than twenty years, providing customers with a level of efficiency, effectiveness, and excellence that’s not only hard to match, it’s hard to find. The team starts by integrating a variety of perspectives to arrive at designs that encompass all aspects of the intended application and the environmental factors that will impact the cylinder. The team then conducts comprehensive design reviews and enlists manufacturing personnel to ensure the design can be efficiently produced, fully addressing the manufacturing sequence of operations required for maintaining important geometric and dimensional tolerances.
Aggressive Hydraulics also recognizes that failure analysis of an existing cylinder intelligently informs the development of a cylinder solution. Combined with sound engineering and an understanding of the application, a failed cylinder helps identify real-world dynamics that impact the cylinder. A failed cylinder is not always available but when it is, Aggressive Hydraulics employs a strategic approach to learning from a cylinder’s history.
Aggressive Hydraulics embraces the value and accreditation of the Fluid Power Specialist certification from the Fluid Power Society. Understanding the hydraulic system of an application is another important aspect of creating “purpose-built” hydraulic cylinder solutions. Aggressive Hydraulics employs Fluid Power Specialists throughout the organization. From Engineering and Sales to Assembly and Production Control, Fluid Power Specialists make the company better regardless of their specific role. Even the President and CEO contributes as a Fluid Power Specialist.
