Compact hydraulic tanks for rotary drives

Particularly compact and compliant with standards: TMSx tank series

New tank series by Bosch Rexroth requires less installation space and complies with relevant European railway standards

Installation space in railway vehicles is extremely precious as engineers struggle to fit more and more technology into unchanged dimensions. Here, the new TMSx hydraulic tank offers relief. The developers of Bosch Rexroth have realized a compact design with a diameter of just 330 mm and a height of 480 mm. The new oil tank complies with all relevant standards of the European railway industry and offers an uncomplicated and versatile solution.

The TMSx tank is particularly designed for application in rotary drives like hydrostatic traction, fan, generator or compressor drives. A cyclone spiral guarantees highly favorable degassing behavior of hydraulic fluids. Its functional capability was verified at flows of up to 350 l/min. The TMSx-16 frame size has a filling volume of just 10,6 liters and can be used for applications with a system volume of up to 70 liters. Thanks to a reduced oil filling, less oil is required per oil exchange. This saves resources and enables reduced life cycle costs.

The reservoir is made of steel and offers various options for level monitoring of the fluid. Medium temperatures between -30 °C to +90 °C are admissible. The TMSx tank series extends the Rexroth modular system solution of pumps, motors, hydraulic blocks, valve technology and RC control systems for railway vehicles. Bosch Rexroth is a globally established supplier of railway technology and offers spare parts supply for decades thanks to obsolescence management.

Economical, precise, safe, and energy efficient: drive and control technology from Bosch Rexroth moves machines and systems of any size. The company bundles global application experience in the market segments of Mobile Applications, Machinery Applications and Engineering, and Factory Automation to develop innovative components as well as tailored system solutions and services. Bosch Rexroth offers its customers hydraulics, electric drives and controls, gear technology, and linear motion and assembly technology all from one source. With locations in over 80 countries, more than 31.100 associates generated sales revenue of approximately 5.4 billion euros in 2015.

Intelligent hydraulics for increased availability

Connected hydraulics increase the availability of machinery and plants through condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. For this purpose, Rexroth offers scalable solutions, from individual units with local evaluation to the complete, cloud-based monitoring of large plants. Sensors measure all relevant operating conditions and software detects wear before it leads to failure. Retrofitting kits also economically integrate already installed plants into these concepts.

Linear motion, short time to market

Stand-alone linear axes are the trend. The combination of electrical drive unit and mechanical or hydraulic cylinder reduces installation space and engineering time and combines our specific professional knowledge in one system. With ready-to-mount and i4.0-enabled solution packages, Bosch Rexroth is in line with the current market requirements regarding electrification, digitalization and monitoring as well as condition-based maintenance. The uniform control and drive concept which is used in the different technologies serves as a basis for a short time to market and the economical implementation of hybrid solutions.
