E-AHP basic

The entry point for autarkic hydraulic axes

Autarkic hydraulic axes are compact units consisting of hydraulic cylinder and motor-pump unit. They can be controlled like electromechanical spindle units. The servo motor is controlled by means of a commercially available frequency converter.

Our units support all well-known manufacturers such as Siemens, Beckhoff, KEB, SEW, Schneider,...

Compared to electromechanical axes, the E-AHP units are characterized by very high forces and very low wear. Even if always the same positions are approached, this is no problem with these units.

E-AHP basic units are characterized by their simple design. The retraction and extension speeds and forces are the same due to the so-called synchronous cylinder.

  • For punching, bending, cutting, pressing, etc.
  • Highly precise positioning (< 5 µm)
  • Highly precise pressure and force control
  • Full 4-quadrant operation (bi-directional push/pull)
