Hydraulics in automation technology

Automation technology is a rather general term.

It refers to a specific field within the mechanical and plant engineering domain. The higher the degree of automation, the less human intervention is required.

Hydraulics in general are very popular in automation technology as the incompressibility of the energy-conveying medium allows for very precise motion control. In addition, hydraulics with small dimensions enable the transmission of very great force and energy. This is also referred to as the power density of hydraulic drives.

We refer to some specific examples of automation technology below.
