Customised hydraulic cylinder designs for your application!

Understanding your machine is integral to the Burnside Hydracyl design process. We do not
mass-produce standard cylinders for distribution – we pride ourselves on designing customised hydraulic cylinder solutions manufactured specific to your machine and to suit your requirements.

We are extremely flexible in our approach. We address the hydraulic cylinder design process in two ways:

  1. Customers deliver us a drawing seeking an identical or similar design based on the drawing
  2. We meet customers on-site to investigate the most appropriate hydraulic cylinder design based on their equipment and machinery.

Through our sophisticated design software and extensive experience, we are fully equipped to facilitate all bespoke hydraulic cylinder design requirements.

Our cutting edge Solidworks 3D design software allows our customers to:

  • Interact fully in the cylinder design process
  • Visualise and detect any component interference
  • Facilitate design changes and modifications
  • Test and validate designs in 3D model , prior to manufacture

Burnside Hydracyl has been designing high quality hydraulic cylinders since 1974 for various industries ranging from the agricultural and construction industry to the recycling and waste management sectors.

Whether you require a single-acting, double-acting or telescopic cylinder, Burnside Hydracyl’s dedicated design team will evaluate your machine and its design requirements. We can then partner with you to produce a top quality hydraulic cylinder solution.
