    Default Hydraulic system

    I want to build a simple hydraulic system for small loads .Can anyone tell me how to go about also provide me links.

    Hi

    You will get pneumatic cylinders from janatics in india. Others like festo are very expensive.
    For a good try you can use syringe also.
    Then comes compressors and other pneumatic valves. A solenoid valve is what controls the flow of gas to a particular cylinders. These valves will be connnected to a controlling section which will control the whole mechanism. These will be mostly PLCs in industries.
    Building a pneumatic system can costly if you want it to be very small. Becouse I think most of the miniature cylinders are custom fabricated.
    These are miniature pumps also available at reasonable cost.

    hey robosepien,
    well, tell me where do u want to use this hydraulic system? is it just out of curiosity or there are certain fields where use of hydraulic system is necessary. i guess, hudraulics are used only where very high loads are involved and the operation is also pretty slow. but, i think, at certain places, use of hydraulics than conventional drives would be better. can anyone throw some light to this topic. i want to know, wheather hydraulics are used in small scales and what are the limiting factors.

    Hi

    The application of phneumatics is obvious if you just have a look at your own body, can you see anything rotating ?

    Just read this article, It will give you a better Idea regarding the application and extend to which we can apply phneumatics.

    Well I was planning on experimenting with syringes.We are working on a suitable compressor system.
