Consider these Design Essentials for Servo Hydraulic Actuators

Actuators with no seals and hydrostatic self-centering rod bearings have almost no friction, infinite life, high side load capability and no limitation on cyclic amplitude of movement and are well suited for precise control and low amplitude high frequency operation. However they suffer from two draw backs. Firstly they are expensive and secondly they have .. read more

An alternative method of Heat-Shrinking Heavy Bearings

Ruggedized Industrial Freezer The Mining Industry and the Mobile Equipment Repair Industry often has a need to fit new bearings into existing pieces of plant and equipment. The conventional way of doing this is to heat the outer housing with a flame to allow the bearing to fit. An alternative method has been to use .. read more

Digital Vibration Controllers

Modern digital controllers are used to control either electro-dynamic or electro-hydraulic shakers for the vibration testing of products ranging from; electronic components, cars and automotive components, medical and defence equipment and packaged equipment (from cosmetics to pallets of beer). To test under real life conditions, modern vibration controllers can reproduce the vibration wave forms found .. read more

Nano Testing with Hylec Controls

Conventional mechanical testing of metallic and non-metallic materials has used either universal test machines which measure the strength and mechanical properties of materials by either tensile or compression testing methods. Another technique employed is the use of hardness testers where material is indented with a fixed force and the size of the indentation to give .. read more

Fully automatic hydrostatic burst test machine for plastic pipes and fittings

Hydrostatic Burst Testing Machines Hydrostatic and burst testing machines are specifically used for time-to-failure-test of plastic pipe under constant internal pressure and for the resistance of plastic pipes, tubes and fittings to short-time hydraulic pressure. Such machines find use by manufacturers or importers of plastic pipes and fittings. Hylec Controls  offers cost-effective hydrostatic and burst testing .. read more

Concrete Strength Measurement on Construction Sites

The Concreting Services industry is integral to the construction of most types of buildings and structures. Industry contractors pour, lay, place and shape concrete to form foundations, roads, structures and panels. The industry is one of the largest in the Construction Services subdivision, and it is a common requirement on Construction sites to measure the .. read more

Resource-consuming Measurements on Growth Drilling Cores CAN be Replaced

Determining the Density of Trees & Timber with Hylec’s wood density tester Injured Trees Did you know when a tree is injured, the wound never heals? Instead, the tree compartmentalizes the wound by walling it off with chemicals. Knots in lumber are enclosed-off tree wounds. They are dark because the area is lifeless: Water and .. read more

Telegraph Poles attacked by soft rot? We have the wood density tester for you.

Pilodyn makes it possible to assess the extent of decay objectively and to determine the amount of strength loss it has caused, a matter of special importance with telegraph poles. The test consists in injecting a spring-loaded steel striker pin into the wood. A scale on the instrument gives the depth of penetration. Pilodyn makes .. read more
