Manufacturing Inc. has over 30 successful years
of hydraulic industry experience in North America. Most
of this time has been spent in the servicing and manufacturing
of hydraulic pumps, cylinders, and jacks. During this
time we found that the most common problems with the
industry standard steel hydraulic jacks is their tendency
to corrode as well as the fact that these steel jacks
are very heavy and difficult to handle.
|In 1990 we
began manufacturing these jacks in Aluminum with a
hard anodized coating. In doing so we have virtually
eliminated the problems of corrosion with a further
benefit being the reduced weight. An Aluminum hydraulic
jack is up to 60% lighter than a comparable tonnage
steel jack without compromising the jack's structural
integrity. We manufacture Single Acting, Double Acting, Double Acting Hollow Plunger, Single Acting Hollow Plunger, and Lock Nut cylinders ranging in size
from 30 - 150 ton capacities and 2 " - 13"
strokes. We are also open to manufacturing custom sizes
for specific customers.
Orbit also manufactures a special line of Aluminum hydraulic
for the tire service industry. These jacks are capable
of supporting up to 100 Tons while remaining stable
even in undesirable circumstances. These jacks have
the added benefit of having a base plate (30 & 50
Ton Models) and shut off valves. These valves enable
the separation of the jack from the pump while still
keeping the load supported; thus eliminating the need
for separate vehicle stands (which in many cases are
not able to support the same amount of weight). As with
all our jacks, the fact that they are Aluminum with
a hard anodized coating means that they can be easily
used in the field for long periods of time with a highly
decreased potential to corrode.
Since we began manufacturing our Jacks out of Aluminum many of our customers
have made the switch from Steel to Aluminum. Some of
the benefits they have received from doing so include:
great reductions in their downtime and service costs,
ease of handling, and much less corrosion and scoring,
as well as the ability to handle the sometimes unavoidable
situation of side loading.
We are already well known locally and are now looking
to expand our distribution across Canada, the United
States, and abroad. Some Orbit
Aluminum cylinders can already be found as far away
as Chile, Taiwan, Sweden, and Denmark.
We guarantee that these jacks will be much appreciated
by the people that use them as they are just as strong
as steel jacks but they are so much easier to handle.
This results in much less back strain and subsequently
less back pain for those individuals involved.
