Heavy objects of any size & tonnage can be lifted and maneuvered hydraulically. For high accuracy movement of heavy loads, however, it may be required to synchronise the lifting and lowering movements of multiple cylinders. For exact geometric positioning of heavy objects, cylinders must move simultaneously with high precision in a controlled manner. i. Typical applications (among others) are:
• Bridge lifting, launching and repositioning
• Controlled movement and positioning of heavy equipment, buildings, concrete segments and other construction components.
Structural testing in civil engineering.
• Lifting, weighing and/or determining center of gravity (oil platforms).
