Work With Stability, Travel in Comfort

Exactly 60 years ago, the company ‘Ölhydraulik Altenerding’ began its track record of success with the swing-axle cylinder. The ‘RH’ series took the business, formerly family owned but since 2012 a part of Bucher Hydraulics, to its position of global market leadership. With the ‘DRH’ series, a significantly improved successor now takes the stage. In parallel, the company has introduced the ‘RM’, a solution for the new era of electrically powered machines.


Precise and energy-efficient control of mobile hydraulics  

Proportional flow control valves from Bucher Hydraulics prove themselves in every application. Thanks to different series with a wide range of variants, they can be used in many ways and are characterized by reliability and durability in demanding areas of application. 


Decentralized Hydraulic-Electric Linear Axis

It’s getting serious; climate change is now undeniable. If industry is to continue to make products and provide secure jobs, the efficiency of manufacturing processes must be massively improved. With new system designs based on its AX technology, Bucher Hydraulics is proving how this can be achieved with hydraulics in drive technology.

Limiting the Local Pressure in Post-Compensated Valves

Bucher Hydraulics has found a way to combine the advantages of pre-compensated load sensing valves with those of post-compensated flow-sharing valves. The new HDS24 flexible flow-sharing valve combines the post-compensated function (can continue to work in undersaturation, or under-supply mode) with the LS local pressure limitation, and enables precision movement in a wide range of applications.


UP40 Mini Power Pack

We developed the UP40 mini power pack with the aims of bringing the hydraulic control closer to the drive and achieving a continually more compact envelope. Compared with other products in this market segment, its dimensions have been reduced to a minimum.
