Tuesday, July 24, 2018
Unlike many hydraulic fitting and adapter manufacturers out there today, we design, produce, and assemble our products in-house for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and distributors worldwide. Our rich history of serving as a top-tier hydraulic fittings supplier extends into a variety of industrial and equipment needs and applications - including access equipment.
Hydraulic Access Equipment
Any equipment that is specifically designed to allow the user to work safely at different heights is commonly called access equipment. Common examples of access equipment include:
- Articulation boom lifts
- Vertical lifts
- Stock pickers
- Scissor lifts
- Aerial work platforms
- Mobile elevating work platform
- And more
Access equipment is used for temporary or flexible access purposes in many different industries such as: aviation, construction, maintenance, utilities, warehouses, firefighters, and emergency access. The specific lift manufactured varies based on the industry and intended functionality of the equipment, and the possibilities are endless.
Hydraulic systems are generally used as the drive mechanism that propels the working platform towards and away from the desired location. The most challenging part about the hydraulic systems in access equipment is the compactness, and the articulation / length of stroke. Custom solutions often are necessary due to space constraints the designs must be robust, adhering to stringent safety factors based on the unique applications.

Importance of Pressure Ratings and Testing for Hydraulic FittingsIt can be difficult to find the right hydraulic fitting or adapter. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to choose the one that is ideal for your application. While you can simply pick one and hope for the best, we recommend paying attention to pressure ratings as pressure is one of the most important things to consider when you’re evaluating hydraulic adapters and systems.
