Hydraulic Car Lift and its Functions

Hydraulic car lifts are a type of hydraulic scissor lifts. They are used for lifting cars above the ground level for different requirements. The hydraulic car lifts may find usage in garages, car showrooms, buildings, service centers, parking facilities and workshops.

These lifts are specifically designed for diverse needs and are available in different heights, size and loading capabilities.

The hydraulic car lift usually can be seen in action in a stock cars race, where a car lift is slided under the car for changing tyres or changing oil. They quicken the process and help in providing an apt height to the car for efficient changing.

Hydraulic Car Lifts

The hydraulic car lifts can be broadly classified into three categories, which include the Two Post Lifts, the Four Post Lifts and Specialty Lifts.

Two Post Lifts help in lifting the vehicle on two posts. They also have four arms, two on each post, which are the used to keep the car at its place during movement.

Four Post Lifts have four posts and a metal ramp is fixed on the lift to help drive the vehicle on it. Once the car is in place, it is raised by simply pushing a button. The posts have self- locking system that keeps the car in its place.

Specialty Lifts mainly include low rise car lifts, single post lifts and parking/stacking lifts. These lifts possess the hydraulic scissor lift like function.

Hydraulic scissor lifts are a diverse lift type and include the Hydraulic Scissor Lift Table, Hydraulic Elevator, Hydraulic Work Platform, Zero Level Lift, Tandem Lift, Hydraulic Stacker Lifts and many others in its category.

Essem Engineers is a leading hydraulic scissor lifts manufacturer in Delhi and lays a lot of stress on innovation, technology and timely delivery as a manufacturer.

Longer Productivity with Multi Stage Telescopic Hydraulic Cylinder

Telescopic cylinders are a special design of a hydraulic cylinder, which provide an exceptionally long output travel from a very compact retracted length. Usually the collapsed length of a telescopic cylinder is 20 – 40 % of the fully extended length depending on the various number of stages involved.

Manufacturing of some pneumatic telescoping units is done with retracted lengths of under 15% of overall extended unit length. This feature is very attractive for machine design engineers when a conventional single stage rod style actuator will not fit in an application to produce the required output stroke.

Heavy duty telescopic cylinders are typically powered by hydraulics, while some units which are lighter duty could also be powered by compressed air.

Essem Engineers, a leading hydraulic cylinders manufacturer is a specialist in providing a wide variety of telescopic hydraulic cylinder.

Focus is on a high efficiency, durability and performance. The telescopic hydraulic cylinders are customized and standardized as per the specifications of the customers. Essem offers a special design of hydraulic cylinders that can lead to an exceptional and long productivity from a compact retracted length.


A telescopic cylinder is commonly applied in cases where the dump body on a dump truck is used in a construction site. In order to empty the load of gravel completely, the dump body should be raised to an angle of about 60 degrees. To achieve this long travel with a conventional hydraulic cylinder is very difficult considering that the collapsed length of a single stage rod cylinder is approximately 110% of its output stroke. It becomes very challenging for the design engineer to fit the single stage cylinder into the chassis of the dump truck with the dump body in the horizontal rest position. However, the above mentioned task is easily accomplished using a telescopic style multi-stage cylinder.

Essem Engineers designs telescopic range of hydraulic cylinders for heavy duty services. Years of experience and a standardized product testing policy have made Essem a renowned telescopic hydraulic cylinder supplier and manufacturer.

Hence a telescopic hydraulic cylinder can be at your doorstep, you just need to contact us at info@essemengineers.com and we will be at your service. We serve you as per your specifications and requirements.

Our Valued Trunnion Mounted Hydraulic Cylinders

Hydraulic cylinders are mechanical actuators that are used to offer a unidirectional force via a unidirectional stroke. They have many applications, particularly in construction equipment, civil engineering, and manufacturing machinery. They are the key hydraulic components.

The hydraulic cylinders convert the energy of the hydraulic liquids or fluids into such a power that is used to move a cylinder in motion. The hydraulic fluid serves as a force for these cylinders.

Trunnions, flanges, clevises, lugs are some of the widespread cylinder mounting options. The piston rods also have mountings attached with the cylinder to connect to the machine that it has to pull or push.

The hydraulic cylinders are the motor or the actuator side of this process. The generator side is the hydraulic pump, which helps in bringing a constant flow of the fluid or oil to the cylinder to move the piston.

Essem Engineers offers a wide range of trunnion mounted hydraulic cylinders. The cylinders are designed uniquely offering value and performance through advanced machinery.

The trunnion mounted hydraulic cylinders manufactured by Essem, have been made with machined hard stop to guarantee trustworthy stopping at end of each stroke. Also these hydraulic cylinders require lesser oil than the ones of its class that ultimately results in quicker cycle times and they can lift much more loads using the same pressure.

The trunnion mounted hydraulic cylinders are very compact in their construction and offer simple mounting to different system. The cylinders are highly functional, abrasion resistant, durable, and compact in their sizes. Essem’s trunnion mounting hydraulic cylinders are few of the most reliable and strongest products in the market.

Also known as the leading hydraulic cylinder manufacturer among the various hydraulic cylinders manufacturers in the market, Essem Engineers can provide innovative and technically sound solutions to client needs.

Our Comprehensive Line of Tie Rod Hydraulic Cylinders

We at Essem Engineers make incessant efforts in manufacturing and supplying world-class hydraulically powered machines. Our focus lies on innovation, durability and a long service life.

Among our highly valued range of hydraulic cylinders, the hydraulic cylinder tie rod is a significant product having a wide usage across industries.


Hydraulic Cylinder Tie Rod

With hydraulic, electro hydraulic and pneumatic types, these cylinders are available in bore sizes ranging from 1 in to 8 in. They come in a wide range of port style, mounting, and other standardized options to meet varied application requirements.

If we look at the functioning of a hydraulic cylinder, a cylinder that is hydraulically powered generates linear force and motion by using pressurized hydraulic fluid. The industrial machines that are powered by such cylinders are capable to form different metals or other material types at an extremely high force with a relatively smaller supply of the high pressurized fluid.

Tie rod hydraulic cylinders make use of high strength and threaded steel rods for holding two end caps with the cylinder barrels. This technique of construction most often is seen in the industrial factory applications. The small bore cylinders generally have four tie rods, while larger bore cylinders may need as many as 20 or 16 tie rods so as to retain end caps under the great forces produced. The tie rod style hydraulic cylinders can be disassembled completely for services and repairs. The NFPA has standardized all the dimensions of the hydraulic cylinder tie rod. This enables the cylinders from diverse manufacturers to interchange inside the same mountings.

Essem Engineers is the pioneer in manufacturing tie rod cylinders. We have the best in industry tie rod hydraulic cylinders manufactured using high quality raw materials. Hence contact us today for the wide ranged product!
