Remove the rear floor plates and make sure the hydraulic cylinder is seated properly.
At Cadbury's Bourneville factory the Rotork actuator has replaced a hydraulic cylinder to regulate the flow of re-melted chocolate back into the production stream--an apparently simple duty which in fact demands a very accurate level of modulating valve control.
The new HHB-150 horizontal baler from Harris is the first in a line of balers featuring the company's new "prefill" hydraulic cylinder. According to Harris R&D Manager Ed Simpson, the prefill cylinder design allows for steady cylinder and hydraulic fluid movement that ultimately reduces energy consumption and decreases the cycle time.
Four toggles are driven by one hydraulic cylinder. Each toggle moves two clamping rods, corresponding to two bolts spaced 3 in.
