Hydraulic Cylinders

A shield machine assembly lifting cylinder is a hydraulic cylinder that is used to lift and position the components of a shield tunneling machine during assembly. Shield tunneling machines are large, complex machines that are used to excavate tunnels through difficult ground conditions, such as rock, sand, and clay. They are typically used to construct tunnels for transportation, infrastructure, and utilities.

Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders are typically very large and powerful, with lifting capacities of hundreds of tons. They are also equipped with sophisticated control systems to ensure that the components of the shield tunneling machine are lifted and positioned accurately and safely.

Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders are essential for the assembly of shield tunneling machines. Without them, it would be impossible to lift and position the large and heavy components of these machines.

Here are some of the key features and benefits of shield machine assembly lifting cylinders:

  • Large lifting capacity: Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders are typically designed to lift hundreds of tons. This makes them ideal for lifting and positioning the large and heavy components of shield tunneling machines.
  • Precise positioning: Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders are equipped with sophisticated control systems that ensure precise positioning of the components being lifted. This is essential for the safe and accurate assembly of shield tunneling machines.
  • Reliability and safety: Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders are designed to be highly reliable and safe. They are manufactured from high-quality materials and are subjected to rigorous testing before being used.

Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders are an essential tool for the assembly of shield tunneling machines. They play a vital role in the construction of tunnels around the world.

Advantages of Shield Machine Assembly Lifting Cylinder:

Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders offer a number of advantages over other methods of lifting and positioning shield machine components, including:

1. High lifting capacity: Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders are designed to lift and position very heavy loads, often weighing hundreds or even thousands of tons. This makes them ideal for lifting and positioning the large and heavy components of a shield machine.

2. Precise control: Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders can provide very precise control over the lifting and positioning of shield machine components. This is important for ensuring that the components are properly aligned and installed.

3. Safety: Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders are designed to be very safe and reliable. They are equipped with a number of safety features, such as overload protection and emergency stop devices.

4. Flexibility: Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders can be used in a variety of configurations to meet the specific needs of each project. This makes them a versatile solution for lifting and positioning shield machine components.

5. Improved efficiency: Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders can help to improve the efficiency of shield machine assembly by streamlining the lifting and positioning process. This can lead to significant time and cost savings.

6. Reduced risk of damage: Shield machine components are often very expensive and delicate. Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders can help to reduce the risk of damage to these components by providing precise control over the lifting and positioning process.

Shield Machine Assembly Lifting Cylinder Application Scenarios:

Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders are used in a variety of applications, including:

  • Lifting and positioning the shield machine during assembly: Shield machines are large and complex machines, and their assembly can be a challenging task. Lifting cylinders are used to lift and position the various components of the shield machine during assembly, ensuring that they are aligned correctly.
  • Lowering the shield machine into the ground: Once the shield machine is assembled, it needs to be lowered into the ground to begin tunneling. Lifting cylinders are used to control the descent of the shield machine, ensuring that it is lowered slowly and carefully.
  • Adjusting the position of the shield machine during tunneling: As the shield machine tunnels through the ground, it may need to be adjusted to maintain a straight course or to avoid obstacles. Lifting cylinders are used to make these adjustments, ensuring that the shield machine remains on track.
  • Lifting and positioning the shield machine for maintenance: Shield machines require regular maintenance, and lifting cylinders are used to lift and position the shield machine so that maintenance can be performed safely and efficiently.

In addition to these general applications, shield machine assembly lifting hydraulic cylinders may also be used for more specific purposes, such as:

  • Lifting and positioning the shield machine's cutterhead: The cutterhead is the rotating part of the shield machine that excavates the ground. Lifting cylinders may be used to lift and position the cutterhead for inspection or maintenance.
  • Lifting and positioning the shield machine's muckbelt: The muckbelt is a conveyor belt that removes the excavated ground from the shield machine. Lifting cylinders may be used to lift and position the muckbelt for inspection or maintenance.
  • Lifting and positioning the shield machine's thrust jacks: Thrust jacks are hydraulic cylinders that push the shield machine forward through the ground. Lifting cylinders may be used to lift and position the thrust jacks for inspection or maintenance.

Shield machine assembly lifting cylinders are an essential part of shield machine assembly and operation. They provide the power and precision needed to safely and efficiently lift and position the shield machine, ensuring that it can operate safely and efficiently.

China Shield Machine Cylinder Manufacturers

HZPT has been developing and producing shield machine cylinders since 2005, has successfully exported them all over the world, and has a leading global market share. For example, the Bertha shield machine in Seattle, the entire set of high-pressure hydraulic cylinders is from HZPT. Even though the equipment was constructed underground for two years, HZPT's cylinders did not suffer from corrosion and seal aging.

In recent years, HZPT has developed more energy-saving and efficient hydraulic systems for shield machines in accordance with customer requirements and the characteristics of the domestic shield market application. In the multiple systems of the shield machine, we are equipped with the V30D series on the Inline brand with low noise and more reliability. V30D-140 pump is used in the thrust hydraulic system;  V33D-250 closed pump is used in the rotary hydraulic system of the screw machine; V30D-140+45 pump is used in the assembly machine and auxiliary hydraulic system; V30D-115 pump is used in the synchronous grouting hydraulic system.

We customized solutions for customers to fully meet the needs of complex working conditions such as high frequency, high load, vibration, and pollution during underground construction. HZPT uses its strength to build a comprehensive service brand for hydraulic transmission and control systems in the field of tunnel boring equipment.

Moreover, we go beyond shield machine cylinders. We also supply a diverse range of hydraulic cylinders, including industrial vehicle hydraulic cylinders, aerial work vehicle cylinders, mobile machinery cylinders, industrial engineering cylinders, construction machinery cylinders, forklift hydraulic cylinders, agricultural machinery cylinders, crane hydraulic cylinders, sanitation machinery cylinders, excavator hydraulic cylinders, offshore hydraulic cylinders, energy technology cylinders, tunnel boring machine cylinders, and more.
