Equipment, the working parts of which are driven by oil, is called hydraulic. Unlike classical mechanical counterparts, it is capable of developing a particularly high compressive force. Due to this effect, hydraulic tool is used for working with metals. Where speed of work with alloys is required, and a guarantee of quality results.
Variety of equipment
Equipment driven by hydraulic fluid has a long list. The variety is quite simple to explain, reliability, ease of use and efficiency of the operations performed. The main devices can be safely identified:
- Hydraulic wire rope shears.
- For working with irregular metal.
- Device for cutting nuts that cannot be fed with conventional tools.
- Crimping machine for cable lugs.
- Pipe bender and corner cutting.
Each of the tools uses a hydraulic cylinder as a driving force, which in turn is set in motion by fluid flowing through a valve. The mechanism is smooth enough to control the process as accurately as possible.
The hydraulic tool is used both in the industrial direction and in small repair shops. It is often required for work in emergencies and emergencies, ideal for rescuers. The main areas of application can be safely identified:
- for the manufacturing sector;
- in workshops to remove rusty nuts;
- pipe bending;
- cutting metal with scissors;
- when working with cable products.
Hydraulic tools are the safest to work with. The movement of the working part is smooth enough to avoid accidental injury. You can also guide the position of the tool during cutting or crimping. Increased reliability and durability does not depend on high humidity and dustiness of the place of work. A fairly mobile view of the tool, it can be moved not only in the workshop or in production, but also taken outside the premises.
