Hardened stainless steel dowel pins – When installing and designing a hydraulic cylinder, all the aspects of the cylinder need to be taken care of including cylinders, valves, pistons as well as all the accessories. This makes even the bolts and pins to be an important part of the system. They need to be chosen according to the cylinder type, piston, mount type as well as the material of the pistons and cylinders. In case hardened metals are being used in the system, it is best to use hardened pins and bolts as fittings. This helps in increasing the durability of the system. These electroplated pins result in better smoothness between the components resulting in reduced wear and tear resulting from regular usage of the system. In short, they are energy efficient, low maintenance and long lasting.
