Milwaukee Cylinder has begun providing an EST (Electronic Service Tag™ ) with every new H, MH, LH, and A series cylinder shipment.
This tag is a combination QR Code/NFC tag that allows specific cylinder information to be accessed through the use of a cell phone. This can be invaluable to a maintenance team that needs to quickly obtain a quotation for a seal kit for that specific cylinder, or even a quotation for a replacement cylinder, all at the push of a button.
Additional information available includes, but is not limited to, manufacturing date, model number, bore, stroke, mount style, operating pressure, and tie rod torque.
The tag may be read by scanning the QR code with the camera of a smart phone. Or touch an NFC Technology equipped cell phone to the tag. Either method will provide a link to the cylinder’s information at Milwaukee.
The tag is designed for use in industrial environments, with a temperature range of -31°F to +194°F. The redundant NFC can be used if the QR code is unreadable due to dirt. Simply place the tag in a location that is readable by a cell phone.

Fluid Power, Inc. is pleased to announce the upcoming availability of Cylinders with ARC™ Technology from Milwaukee Cylinder. This is a proprietary valve technology built into the cylinder piston that allows oil to bypass the piston at end of stroke. When the cylinder is not at end of stroke, the valves close, allowing the cylinder to achieve full force and speed.
Cylinders with this technology may be advantageously deployed in applications exposed to excessive heat, and/or where there are long plumbing lines between the cylinder and hydraulic power unit. Fresh, cool oil is allowed to circulate through the cylinder, replacing warm stagnant oil, at the end of every cylinder stroke. ARC™ can also be used to deaerate a cylinder, and thereby improve cylinder response.
Milwaukee Cylinder indicates that cylinder lives of 25% or greater may be achieved using this technology. Milwaukee is extending an extended warranty as part of the product introduction.
Please contact FPI for more information on this new product.
