Forklift Tilt Cylinder for Precise Positioning in Metal Forging and Foundry

Forklift Tilt Cylinder


In metal forging and foundry, precise positioning is crucial for optimal efficiency and safety. Forklifts are commonly used to move heavy loads, but they require a mechanism to control the angle of the load. Forklift tilt cylinders are designed to meet this need, providing a reliable and efficient solution for precise load positioning.

What is a Forklift Tilt Cylinder?

A forklift tilt cylinder is a hydraulic cylinder that is installed on the forklift mast and controls the angle of the load. It consists of a piston, rod, cylinder barrel, and end mounts. The cylinder is filled with hydraulic fluid, and when pressure is applied to one side of the piston, it moves the piston and rod, which in turn tilts the load.

Advantages of a Forklift Tilt Cylinder

  • Precise load positioning
  • Increased safety
  • Improved efficiency
  • Reduced wear and tear on forklift and load

Features of a Forklift Tilt Cylinder

  • High-strength steel construction
  • Hard chrome-plated piston rod for corrosion resistance
  • Seamless steel tube for high pressure and rugged applications
  • Customized end mounts for easy installation
  • Various bore sizes and stroke lengths available for versatility
