Swanson is a quality-certified worldwide supplier of remanufactured hydraulic cylinders. With extensive engineering capabilities and decades of hands-on experience, Swanson leads the industry in restoring severely damaged hydraulic cylinders to prime working condition at a lower cost.
Our global support system is well-positioned to take all types and sizes of worn, abused hydraulic cylinders and return the units to original equipment manufacturer specifications, or “like new” condition, at a cost that compares favorably to "new" cylinder replacement.
When the application demands a heavy-duty cylinder that works at pressures above 3500 psi, Swanson’s well-qualified engineers and seasoned machine operators deliver high performance units that customers expect from a leader.
Swanson houses the specialized machinery needed to remanufacture cylinders to OEM specifications:
Our World Class Remanufacturing Process Includes:
Chrome Plating is an electroplating process, which mechanically bonds a hard, thin layer of chrome to a substrate for resistance to abrasion and corrosion.
This high density, low thermal input process can apply a multitude of surface coatings at specified chemistry with minimal heat affect and dimensional distortion.
Friction welding can bond like and dissimilar metals without filler for a 100% welded interface. Joint strength is equal to or stronger than parent metals.
The metal part is heated by induction and then quenched. The metal undergoes a martensitic transformation. increasing the hardness of the part.
allows for the joining of thicker materials and weld metal overlay for dimensional restoration and the application of corrosion resistance/hard surface coatings
Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) is a proven, reliable process known for its high quality weld metal deposits and high deposition rates. SAW is capable of superior joint penetration and optimal deposit efficiency.
Swanson engineers use their unrivaled experience in cylinder design to evaluate component wear and tear and can make design recommendations that will improve cylinder life and performance.
In an increasingly complex and competitive market, value for money is a priority. At Swanson, our extensive machining and welding expertise is used to remanufacture high-quality components that meet–and exceed–OEM specifications:
