The shutdown of a production line and the complete replacement of pneumatic cylinders was
happening every few months. Lost production time was costing this Saw Mill a small fortune
every time they had an unscheduled line stop.
We have spent years working with BC saw mills and know the demands that can be put on the
We designed and manufactured a cylinder for our customers application. Thanks
to the features we provided the cylinder life span has doubled and can be easily
repaired instead of having to be replaced.
Leaking hydraulic fluid caused by chemical attack on the cylinders seals at one
mine was becoming a big problem; lost time, money and the dangers of spillage.
Not only was the cylinder getting attacked but their entire hydraulic unit was
being damaged as the chemical was getting into the system.
We worked with our customer to understand the chemical resistance required and developed a
customized cylinder that survives in that harsh environment. Now our customer doesn't need
to be concerned about their hydraulic system and can continue to get their product to
market. Meeting their delivery schedule at a reduced cost.
When it came time to test a multi-million dollar jet aircraft, our customer needed us to
develop and manufacture precision actuators that had very tight pivot mounting tolerances.
This was required in order to meet precision assembly and testing demands.
Working to the specifications developed by their engineering group, we designed and
manufactured a series of cylinders that allowed them to successfully test the aircraft to
their testing requirements.
Existing water service cylinders were being used in a severe press application and were
failing continuously. This resulted in key manufacturing equipment being down and costing
thousands of dollars in lost production time and money.
We have produced a specific line of cylinders manufactured from select corrosion resistant
materials designed to withstand the harsh operating conditions of contamination and
misalignment. We were able to supply cylinders that greatly increased the life and
performance of the press machines. We also put in place a manufacturing and local support
plan so that our customer would always have quick access to replacement parts and cylinders
We engineered and manufactured a large quantity of cylinders with bores up to 20 inches diameter
to a high safety factor and all this needed within a tight deadline. These were only just a few
requirements our customer had. What they needed was product management and dedication
so they could meet their deadlines.
We were able to supply the cylinders needed along with producing detailed drawings,
procedures, repair procedures and quality control certificates.
Royal developed the ELECTRIC E-series roller screw actuator in response to the forest industry’s
need for a more robust and reliable roller screw actuator capable of withstanding the harsh
operating conditions found in veneer processing. Available industry units at the time did not
stand up to the severe impact loading and harsh environment that caused units to fail
prematurely. At Royal, we set out to design the toughest, most reliable unit in the forest
industry that would exceed industry expectations. The E Series roller screw has done that and
With our proven track record of designing and manufacturing heavy duty hydraulic cylinders, we
used these principles of heavy duty steel construction to handle the mounting and impact
challenges faced by this application. Using all steel construction, hardened wear surfaces and
shock absorption technology, these units provide years of trouble free operation and are now the
new industry standard.
