H-CFRP® Hydraulic Cylinders

Hänchen produces lightweight hydraulic cylinders with H-CFRP® piston rods and cylinder tubes in small batches. When producing components for cylinders, the carbon fibres are selected and designed as required. The resulting hybrid materials made of metals and carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP) withstand the very high stress to which they are exposed in hydraulic applications. Lightweight hydraulic cylinders made of H-CFRP® have several advantages:

  • Reduces weight by op to 80%
  • Enable corrosion-free or non-magnetic designs
  • A high load capacity composite
  • No thermal expansion
  • 50% more energy efficient
