Hytec Engineering commissioned a highly sophisticated cylinder test bench, designed and constructed in-house. The bench was built in response to customer demand for a leading-edge testing facility, and according to specifications and standards from a long standing customer in the mining industry.
This test bench is used at the end of the assembly line for testing different types of hydraulic cylinders. Functional testing helps to maintain safety standards and durability and in a quality-orientated manufacturing and repairs environment there is a need to control manufactured and refurbished components.
Hytec Engineering’s test bench is valued at over R1.5-million and is unique to sub-Saharan Africa. It was built using expertise, hydraulic and automation equipment, and products from the entire Hytec Group, including an automation control system that was supplied by Tectra Automation.
