Hydraulic test system

Testing Technology

Hydraulic equipment for your testing tasks from a single source

Smart solutions for your hydraulic test systems

Properties such as strength, service life and durability define the reliability of a product and must be known and tested before the product is launched. As hydraulic test systems often involve heavy loads, high pressures and highly dynamic movements, Bosch Rexroth is the ideal partner for the best quality hydraulic products and complete drive and control systems for your test bench technology. 

Hydraulic test equipment or test system

Your competent partner for test bench construction

We offer complete solutions for the optimum testing process. Hydraulic oil supply, switch-on modules and manifolds, automation, servo valves and test actuators – everything from a single source, seamlessly integrated and intelligently connected. We not only supply products – we also support you with our wealth of industry sector and application knowledge.

Our test bench solutions

Hydraulic oil supply with a large ABMAXX hydraulic power unit

Hydraulic oil supply

Our hydraulic oil supply systems are optimized for your test system. This is backed up by graduated sizes for different testing requirements and the modular and cascade-able design with energy-efficient drive solutions. The hydraulic power units are designed to save resources and allow easy maintenance. Our control technology also allows optimum connectivity in your industrial environment.

  • ABMAXX – Modular large power units up to 18000 l tank size, optional myCro-optimized tanks with reduced oil volume
  • CytroBox – Compact, energy-efficient, quiet and connected – hydraulic power unit up to 30 kW
  • CytroPac – Compact and energy-efficient – the small hydraulic power unit up to 4 kW
  • ABPAC – Flexible and energy-efficient – the hydraulic power unit up to 315 bar
  • Sytronix – Intelligently controlled motor/pump assemblies with digital control

Hydraulic servo actuators

With test cylinders from our modular series, components can be tested for function and strength. Low-friction double-acting cylinders equipped with suitable sensors and controlled by a proportional or servo valve guarantee high control quality even with very dynamic movements.

  • The series Basic, Advanced and Excellence cover virtually all force and dynamic areas of application
  • Standardized cylinder control blocks offer basic hydraulic, safety and comfort functions of a test axis.
  • Functional and mounting elements complement the actuator to create a ready-to-install test axis
  • Simulation tools help to validate the optimum cylinder-valve combination

Self-contained hydraulic actuators

Our self-contained actuators are designed to offer maximum added value over the entire life cycle – with their compact design with fully electric control and open interfaces, energy-efficient, quiet operation and long, low-maintenance operating life. Thanks to their encapsulated hydraulic transmission, self-contained actuators are an easy-to-use, robust and long-lasting alternative to electro-mechanical axes. The previous limits in terms of cooling, power density and service life are being redefined. The self-contained hydraulic actuator combines the power of hydraulics with the dynamics and precision of electrical systems. The adaptable actuator can be connected to the existing power supply – the usual hydraulic supply is not required. Can be used in test benches for tensile and compression tests with frequencies < 2 Hz.

The service for your test bench

Our aim is to ensure that in terms of efficiency, you benefit from the Bosch Rexroth test system solutions you use in your company for as long as possible. The availability of spare parts, repairs and technical support is guaranteed by us as standard, not only for all products in the current portfolio, but also for a period of at least 10 years beyond the active sales phase. After that, you will have access to services during an extended service phase.

We can also offer you immediate assistance at the push of a button. In the event of a malfunction, the Digital Service Assistant is available around the clock for access to the entire service portfolio. The repair service and the hotline are also there for you 24/7. And to make sure you can act rather than react in the future, Bosch Rexroth offers forward-looking services such as CytroConnect Solutions.
