Hydraulic Cylinder Rods Induction Hardened and Chromed Plated

Hydraulic Cylinder Rods

All of Northlake’s steel bar products can be supplied as hydraulic cylinder rods (also known as piston rods) with hard chrome plating and induction hardening.  This includes sizes as small as 0.158” (4mm) or as large as 16” and lengths up to 40’ and beyond.

Northlake has the capabilities to produce induction hardened bars and tubes in diameters from 0.158” (4mm) through 12”, lengths to 40’ and longer in carbon, alloy, and stainless grades.  Therefore we can help with most hydraulic cylinder rod requirements.

We offer a full line of C-P-O (Chrome Plated Only) and IH-CP (Induction Hardened and Chrome Plated) products.

The items below represent some of our standard stock items.  Also, we maintain a large inventory of rough turned raw material in 50K and 75K minimum yield strength.  Our steel bar inventory can be quickly processed to your specifications.  Hence Northlake is well known for having a vast inventory of long length bars.  We carry 294” minimums up to 475” lengths on the floor, depending on size.
