Four-kiloton press creates supermaterials with Sytronix hydraulics

Challenge:

Develop a more energy-efficient hydraulic power solution for four-kiloton six-axis supermaterials press

Results:

  • Sytronix DFEn system replaces constant speed electric motor driving axial piston pump with more efficient variable-speed pump drive technology
  • New Sytronix system operates to deliver just the right hydraulic flow and pressure to match the press’s varying duty cycle—high flow & low pressure, then high flow & high pressure, and then a long “dwell” period of high pressure
  • Potential energy savings up to 50 percent compared to previous hydraulic power system
  • Sytronix also helps reduce noise and waste heat associated with hydraulics system
