Hydraulics give power to various equipment. Equipment can be material handling equipment such as scissors lift, hydraulic jacks, cranes, forklifts and pallet trucks.
Hydraulic cylinders (Also Known as “ กระบอกไฮดรอลิก “ in the Thai Language) and piston are very important to earth moving equipment. In all cases like that, the piston and cylinder are subject to extraordinary pressure.

Hydraulic solutions are quite simple. At the core is a hydraulic pump, either powered by hand or with the use of an electric motor. Fluid is transmitted to the hydraulic cylinder through the valve.
Hydraulic cylinders and pistons do the actual work. Consisting of cylindrical heads, tubes, piston rod and seals, this is where the movement occurs as oil, under pressure, moving the piston bar to here and there.
The cylinder base is covered with a gap at the other end from which the piston can extend. The piston has seals attached that divides the cylinder into the head ends and the base end.
In hydraulic solutions both cylinders and pistons play an important part. Construction and precision making materials play an important role in performance and durability. The seal is also very important in preventing leakage and maintaining pressure.
