Arcos Hydraulik AB

Twice as powerful

The foundation of our organization

For the last 40 years, Arcos has built and developed hydraulic cylinders. The amount of experience required in that time has resulted in a unique capacity to design and construct cylinders in all shapes and sizes. Now we are a leading developer on the global market and like nothing more than to create new cylinders together with our customers. At Arcos, we have a 4 person engineering department consisting of mechanical engineers who develop and design new cylinders and the ones we refurbish. Our constructions department with their combined experience is one of the reasons you should choose Arcos as your hydraulic supplier.


Designing new and customized hydraulic cylinder

At Arcos, there is little to none mass production. Our specialty is the complicated customized hydraulic cylinder that requires knowledge and experience to manufacture. Our engineering department is designated for designing and making it possible for us to manufacture your desired cylinder. Before our engineers start to develop your cylinder they need to know the fitting dimensions and the field of application. With that information, they start supplying you with ideas and make suggestions that will make your cylinder work better and will give you a problem-free operation.

All our engineers are educated in sealing solutions and help you find the best seals for your field of application, whether it is regarding media, temperatures or you would like to reduce friction they will make suggestions that will prolong your cylinders lifespan.

Our mechanical engineers work in auto-cad and establish drawings for all hydraulic cylinders and the parts containing. Drawings, documentation and compilations are provided after delivery has been completed. The documentation regarding your cylinder is archived and available whenever you need them. The reason we keep the documentation is to shorten the lead time when you like to order more cylinders or send it for refurbishment.


Design in refurbishment and renovation of hydraulic cylinders

All the cylinders sent for refurbishment passes through our construction department. Our engineers are responsible for taking measurements and making drawings in auto-cad. When you choose Arcos for your refurbishment we look at the whole cylinder. Our engineers make decisions whether parts can be reused after treatment or if replacements should be manufactured. When our engineers create drawings for your cylinder, they take your notes and wishes into consideration and make suggestions on how your cylinder could be improved.

When you choose Arcos as your partner our engineers make sure you´re provided with all the drawings and documentation regarding your cylinder. The documentation is also archived and used as a foundation when you decide to come back for your future renovation needs. Being able to track which actions been made in the past our engineers can detect patterns and make suggestions on which adjustments are appropriate for maintaining a longer operation.
