As a project partner for the latest Panama Canal improvements, Bosch Rexroth manufactured, delivered, and installed a total of 152 customized hydraulic power units and drive cylinders, and the redundant PLC control system for the various lock chambers.
Self-contained servo axes largely eliminate the separation between electromechanical, hydraulic and electrohydraulic drives in design, installation and commissioning.
Challenge: Develop a more energy-efficient hydraulic power solution for four-kiloton six-axis supermaterials press Rexroth Solution: Sytronix DFEn variable-speed pump drive system
Bosch Rexroth: Technology Spotlight - Sytronix Reduced energy consumption - Energy savings of up to 80% decrease operating costs and your overall carbon footprint in accordance with regulations (e.g. EC Directive No. 640/2009). Lower noise emission - Reducing the hydraulic power unit’s average noise emission by up to 20 dB (A) makes [...]
