Key Insights & Considerations:

  • Hydraulic drives can reliably position axes to within a few micrometers
  • Hydraulic machines can generate high forces even in minimal space
  • Modern technology can reduce the energy consumption of hydraulic power units by up to 80 percent, even in older machines
  • Drive software for hydraulic actuators can automatically harmonize for the particularities of fluid technology
  • Modern motion controls for hydraulic drives support all common communication protocols
  • Ready-to-install servo-hydraulic axes have an integrated fluid loop and are driven by the same servo drives as electromechanical versions
