Texas Hydraulics was founded on the concept of producing a better hydraulic cylinder and this spirit of invention and ingenuity remains alive today. As evidenced in the new designs, application analysis, and concept cylinders developed by our engineering staff, we are working to lower the life cycle cost of your cylinder. We take great pride in our large, highly experienced engineering staff, state of the art design and testing tools and the level of engineering support provided to our customers past the initial sale.
- PTC Creo Parametric (CAD software for solid modeling)
- PTC Creo Simulate (Finite Element Analysis)
- SAC (Cylinder Loading Analysis software)
Assistance with Design and Prototype Qualification
Let our experienced Engineering staff support your next new application by ensuring that you receive the optimal design and best value. Our expertise in designing with sealing components has led to many advances in cylinder capabilities. Our design solutions have addressed many of the typical aggravations of cylinder operation including cushion problems, contamination, pressure trapping and friction. We provide solid models upon request, and our engineers are available for on-site design and application troubleshooting when needed. We become an extension of your engineering team.
We deliver timely prototype designs and have complete cylinder analysis capabilities including:
- Burst Testing
- Load Testing
- Irregular Load Testing
- Finite Element Analysis to Identify Stress Points
- Pulse Testing
We can even validate the design on your own equipment!
