Rexroth Solution:

Retrofit and upgrade hydraulics and press controls to achieve improved throughput, faster turnaround, increased safety and energy efficiency.

Key Insights & Considerations:

  • New digital electrohydraulic controls offer greater endpoint accuracy and precision
  • Hydraulics technologies such as manifolds and proportional valves can streamline system design while improving performance
  • More efficient hydraulics pumps and motors can reduce energy consumption
  • Correcting safety, noise and environmental issues (i.e. leaking fluids) can significantly improve operator and plant efficiency and productivity
  • Retrofits of hydraulics and controls can increase press availability and reduce “dead time”
