Design & Engineering

Design, Development and Prototypes

Every PB Machine Tech customer is assigned a design engineer who will custom design the cylinder which is ideal for your application.

We work closely with market leading seal and valve suppliers and directly with steel mills to ensure that we deliver you the best product which is fit for your purpose and specified to exactly what is required for you and your end customers.

Once our engineers have designed the right product for you a prototype is built and extensively tested in our Centre of Excellence. Here static testing, dynamic testing, buckling testing, environmental testing and load testing are all carried out to your requirements. This allows us to show you exactly how your cylinder will perform over its lifetime.

Engineering Assistance

Our engineering and design team will work closely with your engineers to provide a hydraulic solution for your machine. Working with state of the art 3D design software (Pro-Engineer®) we can produce STEP files for use in your machine build and design process.

In addition to this we also have Pro-Mechanica® which revolutionises the way we can work. Now you can see a dynamic model of the likely stress points and weak points of components and they can be eliminated before the drawing even leaves the office saving you time and money.

Every product designed undergoes extensive FEMA (failure mode effect analysis) before it reaches the prototype stage to minimise production supply issues in later stages.
