Hedley were approached to design, fabricate and supply a HPU, cylinder assembly and hoses assembly for a returning customer in the Aerospace industry. The hydraulic system supplied allows safe opening and closing of a pressure vessel door to ensure the mass of the door is safely controlled. Due to the success of the aerospace industry, aerospace autoclaves have played a vital role in the manufacture of aircraft wings, vertical tails and components. Hydraulics are the obvious choice for pressure vessel doors because they are so large and heavy and they need smooth and accurate control.
In this industry reliability is essential, our precision engineers had this in mind, and we successfully supplied a 1.1Kw HPU, 6.2LPM gear pump, metric frame motor with 35L tank and the cylinder was 40 bore by 28 rod and 255 stroke and 3/8” hose assembly.
