An increasing number of solutions are available from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), independent aftermarket suppliers, and remanufacturers. When searching for the best option to minimize downtime and total cost of ownership, users may consider reverse-engineered products that seem identical to the genuine original versions. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/why-risk-it-copycat-hydraulics" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/why-risk-it-copycat-hydraulics#comments Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Hydraulic Valves Mon, 08 Sep 2014 19:32:00 +0000 28681 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com 60 Years Ago: Two Pump System Provides Synchronized Motion http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/60-years-ago-two-pump-system-provides-synchronized-motion <div class="field-deck"> High pressure, low slip, radial piston pumps with a gear pump powered stroking mechanism supply equal volumes to each of the two car dumping jack cylinders.

Keeping two cylinders moving together regardless of varying loads, eliminating possibilities of shock in the system because of the large mass being handled, and providing rigid piping on oscillating cylinders are all accomplished in the design.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/60-years-ago-two-pump-system-provides-synchronized-motion" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/60-years-ago-two-pump-system-provides-synchronized-motion#comments Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Wed, 20 Aug 2014 19:43:00 +0000 28411 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Hydraulics in the Limelight http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/hydraulics-limelight <div class="field-deck"> Unseen hydraulics bring on-stage performances to life. </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Whether you&rsquo;re into ballet or hip-hop, the staging and special effects now play a major role in performances at many modern theaters and arenas.
