Parker Canada is well recognized as a key cylinder supplier to the wood processing industry. With more than 50 years of proven design, Parker has taken the GEN II 2H hydraulic cylinder to new levels of performance and reliability. Significant improvements in seal design and materials, bearings, and assembly processes all contribute to providing the best cylinder for the most demanding applications.

Wood Processing

  • The GEN II 2HX cylinder offers unparalleled performance in precise positioning applications. Low friction zero leak seals with dual wear bands reduce cylinder stiction and eliminate metal to metal contact between the piston and the cylinder tube. Analog, digital and SSI position feedback options combined with integral proportional/servo valves provide an unmatched level of integration.

    The Gen II 2H has the answers to addressing high cycle and high shock applications. A precision machined, sealed and torqued piston and rod assembly is designed to maximize fatigue life at full rated operating pressure. Precision machined heads and caps, pre-stressed tie rods and hardened washers ensure pressure envelope integrity.

    Parker GEN II hydraulic cylinders offer an endless list of possibilities for customization. Our highly experienced team of Cylinder Application Experts are readily available to consult with you on site. With the support of a dedicated engineering group, Parker Canada will work closely with you to develop the best cylinder for your application.
