A-Frame Cylinder order

Hystat successfully supplied 2 off Ø540 bore x Ø295 rod x 5449 stroke cylinders on a very tight and difficult schedule. Approved by Bureau Veritas the cylinders were used on a ship based A-frame on the 'Aura' vessel which was re-fitted recently in Finland.

Hystat has successfully installed 2 brand new CNC machining centres at its Slaithwaite site. These consist of a HAAS horizontal full four axis machine and a heavy duty vertical Dugard complete with 50 taper plus spindle. Both incorporate high pressure coolant and Renishaw probing. This new investment has given greater capacity for its range of CNC machines and will continue as part of the current development and expansion plans.
