Forklift Hydraulic Cylinder Rod End Types and Applications

Forklift Hydraulic Cylinder Rod End Types and Applications

Hydraulic cylinders are essential parts of a forklift. They are responsible for converting hydraulic energy into linear mechanical force and motion. Hydraulic cylinders consist of various components, including the piston, cylinder barrel, and rod end. In this article, we will discuss the different types of forklift hydraulic cylinder rod ends and their applications.

Piston Rod End Types

  • Male Threaded Rod Ends
  • Female Threaded Rod Ends
  • Welded Rod Ends
  • Integrated Rod Ends

The piston rod end is an essential component of a hydraulic cylinder, as it is responsible for transmitting force and motion to the load. Male threaded rod ends are typically used when a load needs to be fastened to the end of the cylinder rod. Female threaded rod ends are used when a cylinder rod needs to be inserted into a threaded hole. Welded rod ends are used when a cylinder rod needs to be welded directly to a load. Integrated rod ends are used when a cylinder rod needs to be attached to a load using a pin or other fastening method.

Clevis Rod End Types

  • Standard Clevis Ends
  • Extended Clevis Ends
  • Spherical Clevis Ends
  • Universal Clevis Ends

Clevis rod ends are used when a hydraulic cylinder needs to be attached to a load using a pin or other fastening method. Standard clevis ends are typically used when the cylinder needs to be attached to a load at a right angle. Extended clevis ends are used when the cylinder needs to be attached to a load at an angle other than 90 degrees. Spherical clevis ends are used when the cylinder needs to compensate for minor misalignments. Universal clevis ends are used when the cylinder needs to compensate for both minor and major misalignments.

Applications

Forklift hydraulic cylinders are used in various applications, including:

  • Lifting and lowering loads
  • Tilting loads
  • Pushing and pulling loads
  • Stabilizing loads
  • Steering and braking
