Injection Molding Machine Cylinders We Repair

At Cylinders, Inc., our team of experts is skilled at diagnosing and repairing issues in a variety of injection molding machine components to help your machine operate safely and efficiently:

  • Clamping cylinders: These powerful hydraulic cylinders apply immense force to clamp the two halves of the injection mold tightly together. This prevents leaks of molten plastic during the injection process and ensures the final product has the correct shape and dimensions.
  • Injection cylinders: These cylinders drive the injection unit, which includes the screw mechanism that melts and mixes the plastic material. They generate the high pressure needed to force the molten plastic into the mold cavity at exactly the right speed and volume.
  • Ejector cylinders: Once a part has cooled and solidified inside the mold, ejector cylinders operate pins or plates that push the finished part out of the mold. This allows for fast and efficient removal of the part and prepares the machine for the next cycle.
  • Carriage cylinders: These cylinders are responsible for moving the entire injection unit forward and backward along the machine's frame. This helps the injection unit align properly with the mold and retract after the injection process is complete.

Welding

Our skilled welders use advanced techniques to repair cracks or breaks in cylinder bodies or end caps to restore their structural integrity.

Re-Sealing

Worn or damaged seals are a common cause of leaks in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. Our re-sealing services involve replacing old seals with high-quality materials, stopping leaks, improving overall efficiency, and preventing costly breakdowns.

Honing

The interior surfaces of cylinders can become worn or uneven over time. Our honing process uses specialized tools to smooth and resurface these areas to help the piston move seamlessly and efficiently within the cylinder.

Chrome Plating

We offer chrome plating services for cylinder rods to provide a hard, wear-resistant surface. This protects against corrosion, reduces friction, and extends the lifespan of these essential components.

Rod Straightening

Bent rods can significantly impair the function of hydraulic cylinders. Our team at Cylinders, Inc. carefully straightens bent rods, restoring their true shape and ensuring they operate correctly within the cylinder.

Pressure Testing

Safety is always our top priority. We conduct rigorous pressure testing on repaired cylinders to simulate the stresses they’ll face during operation. This ensures that they can withstand the demands of your injection molding process and prevents unexpected failures.

Polishing and Refinishing

We restore the external appearance of cylinders with our polishing and refinishing services. This not only improves their aesthetic but also protects them from corrosion and environmental damage.
