Hydraulics are an important part of modern technology. There are two primary types of hydraulic systems, hydrostatics, which utilize fluids at lows speeds and high pressures, and hydrodynamics, which utilize fluids at low pressures, but high speeds. Hydraulic energy comes in three forms: kinetic energy from moving liquids, potential energy from pressure, and heat energy from resisting the flow of fluids. Due to the wide variety of purposes that hydraulic parts that can be used for, it is not uncommon for companies to request custom fabrication for a custom hydraulic system. This is because sometimes a company needs a hydraulic system that simply doesn’t exist or doesn’t properly match their purpose. This article looks at how a custom hydraulic system is fabricated.
- What Type of Custom Hydraulic System Does the Client Need?: The first step in making a custom hydraulic system is determining what kind of hydra
