New Parker electro-hydraulic cylinders deliver speed, power and precision


OEMs and end-users alike will benefit from the speed, power and precision of a new and highly advanced electro-hydraulic cylinder, which has been launched by Parker Hannifin.

The new HMIX cylinder is a fully integrated sub-system, combining proven Parker tie-rod cylinder technology with a high precision feedback transducer, manifold and pipework, into a single easy-to-fit unit.

This enables machine developers and builders to enhance the functionality and performance of machine systems, quickly and simply, while reducing installation, configuration and maintenance times.

Key to the overall performance of the new HMIX electro-hydraulic cylinder is a sophisticated, internally mounted magnetostrictive transducer. This provides continuous analogue or digital feedback of the actuator’s position, derived from the interaction of two magnetic fields. These are generated by a permanent magnet attached to the actuator piston, and by a magnetic pulse produced by a current pulse launched along a copper core inside a waveguide tube, which runs the length of the piston rod.
