Hydraulic cylinder repairs performed by SPS Selective Plating Services offer a unique, world leading solution for damaged hydraulic rams and cylinders across Australia. Our techniques can repair the defects in a chrome plated cylinders without having to remove the existing chrome coating. Defects such as scores, impact damage and corrosion are all repaired by a selective plating method. Due to the fact that we do not require immersion into a plating tank, this amazing hydraulic cylinder repair can be performed onsite and even in-situ (with a hydraulic cylinder still attached to machinery).
To repair a hydraulic cylinder onsite or in-situ is huge benefit to industry. An onsite or in-situ repair of a hydraulic cylinder will dramatically reduce downtime associated with off-site processes such as disassembly, road transportation, removal of the chrome surface, re-chrome plating, cylindrical grinding, return transportation and reassembly. Our techniques have now been developed for nearly 40 years from our original operations in the aircraft industry where this technique prevented major grounding of aircraft due to damaged cylinders on landing gear.
Our hydraulic cylinder service is of immense value to the manufacturing and construction industries. In a manufacturing plant failure of seals on a hydraulic press can bring production to a standstill. This undesirable situation can be prevented by regular maintenance checks and electroplating repairs conducted in-situ. In the construction industry major equipment downtime can be avoided by repairing existing cylinder damages before seal failure occurs. However, if a large hydraulic cylinder is removed due to seal failure we can still repair it on the customers premises saving considerable downtime associated with transporting off site.
