Bosch Rexroth celebrates 50 years in U.S.

2017-10-16 16:35:42

2017 marks Bosch Rexroth’s 50th year of continuous operation in the United States. Starting with a small office in Easton, Pa. in 1967 and a handful of associates, Rexroth grew quickly enough to expand into a newly built hydraulics manufacturing facility 7 years later, the cornerstone of the company’s current manufacturing campus in


Can you pneumatically, linearly control a hydraulic valve?

2017-10-16 16:35:42

As far as positioning of the valve, hydraulic valves already exist in various ways of actuation. For example, you take a big DO8 valve which is a very large spool it’s an industrial valve. You would not make a DO8 with a lever because of what’s called flow forces. The pressure that is acting on the spool itself is enough that it would


Hydraulic cylinders crush bridges

2017-10-10 19:36:50

Researchers at the Technical University (TU) of Munich have developed a new test stand for examining the behavior of concrete bridge beams. To better calculate the load-carrying capacity of these beams in future constructions, six hydraulic cylinders from Liebherr Components, Nussbaumen, Switzerland, are used to press down with full force until


Linear position sensor adapts to existing hydraulic cylinder designs

2017-10-06 18:06:39

Alliance Sensors Group has expanded its in-cylinder position sensor product line to include the MHP-7 series linear inductive sensors. These compact inductive linear sensors were designed to be installed into the rear endcap of hydraulic cylinders for operation at pressures up to 5,000 psig. Their 1-in. hex aluminum or stainless steel housing are


How is sealing used in fluid power systems?

2017-10-05 19:37:31

By Josh Cosford Seals are like car tires. They’re both absolutely essential to the operation of their respective accompaniment, yet are unappreciated by most, unless you’re a race car driver or fluid power engineer. And just like tires, seals used in fluid power have changed only by quantum leaps (the real use of the expression, which
