Rexroth Solution:

Sytronix servo-driven hydraulic system incorporated into the Jomar Model 85S machine

Results:

  • Bosch Rexroth regional sales successfully worked with distributor, Airline Hydraulics, to calculate parameters of the operation
  • Sizing of the Rexroth Sytronix variable speed hydraulic drive using MSK servo motor and IndraDrive C was accomplished by the Rexroth plastics machinery application engineers
  • New Rexroth Hägglunds radial piston motor CAb “The Beast” specially designed for plastifier drives to be smaller and quieter than competitive products
  • Energy consumption reduced by 42 percent
