pumps energy efficiency

How is energy saved in hydraulic pumps in the metalworking industry?

Hydraulic systems can provide the highest power densities that exist in drive technology today. In practice, however, their efficiency does not always match their good reputation. The reason is that the process does not extract everything that is possible. Experience nevertheless shows that by using modern switching and control technology, considerable improvements in efficiency can be achieved in hydraulic systems. Forming processes in the metalworking industry – and not just here – are frequen ...
