Shaping the future

Hydraulic cylinders with carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CRP)

Why use hybrid cylinders?

  • Increased efficiency through increased digging performance and handling capacity
  • Optimised tool-attachment dimensions
  • Lower CO² emissions during operation
  • Compliance with permissible axle loads
  • Longer booms
  • Interchangeability without fundamental modifications to the machine
  • Tribological properties preserved
  • Reduced cylinder tube expansion during pressure peaks

Manufacturing process

A wide range of applications

  • Earthmoving and mining Earthmoving and mining

    Due to the weight reduction of individual components, larger attachments can be used, thus increasing digging performance. This results in reduced emissions and more efficient working methods.

  • Material handling technology Material handling technology

    Notably under tough working conditions, hybrid cylinders withstand dirt, moisture and loads caused by high speeds.

    Here again, the use of CRP makes it possible to have longer booms and increase operating speeds.

  • Crane construction Crane construction

    Hybrid cylinder solutions have an influence on load capacities, operating heights and speeds for "higher, faster and further” operational possibilities. They also help in achieving road approval.
