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.
