A powerhouse

Using a system solution devised by Rexroth, a Chinese manufacturer aims to improve the efficiency of its wheeled loader.

 


 

Fuel-saver on the high seas

With the Turbo Hydraulic System from a Japanese shipbuilder, fuel consumption in maritime travel can be reduced all around the world.

 


 

Routing at guaranteed prices

Quick, precise, and economical, too. The new gantry-style milling machines by KOMO make that possible. A well thought out CNC solution helps.

 


 

Lasting the life of a forklift

Hydrostatic drives improve not only the efficiency but also the driving and working properties of counterbalance forklifts. Daniel Rösch, of the product management at Jungheinrich Moosburg GmbH, reports on advantages and new developments.

 


 

Prints everything

Regardless of whether paper, cardboard or film, the flexographic printing presses made by Expert, an Italian manufacturer, lend appeal to packaging.

 


 

Rethought

Using the VarioFlow chain conveyor system, headliners for passenger cars are moved automatically from one machining station to the next.

 


 

The purity requirement

They are miniscule, but they can bring an entire system to a screeching stop: dirt particles in hydraulic fluid. The right choice of hydraulic system filters and proper service ease the situation.

 
 


 
Energy efficiency: Mechanical engineers seek to balance customer wishes and cost constraints

Energy efficiency: Mechanical engineers seek to balance customer wishes and cost constraints

Mechanical engineering companies are feeling double pressures in developing energy-efficient machines. On the one hand, there are statutory regulations and one’s own cost targets to be met, while on the other hand customers simply pass along their own efficiency requirements for the machine companies to deal with. A status report.

 


 
Quality management: On the test stand

Quality management: On the test stand

Quality has always been one of Bosch Rexroth’s decisive standards. Test methods, however, have changed radically over the years.
