Cylinders provide welding forge force

Parker Hannifin series 2H heavy duty hydraulic tie rod cylinders are being used for a number of clamping and forging, automatic loading and unloading, and shear flash removal operations on welding machines produced by Thomson Friction Welding.

Key tasks of the cylinders are applying friction and forging force throughout the friction weld cycle, and ensuring a consistent, high integrity, safety critical weld. Up to 20 cylinders are employed on each machine.
