Smart electrohydraulics combine the durability of classic hydraulics with the energy efficiency of electric components: Where classic hydraulic drive and control solutions for mobile machines are often not designed for efficiency but primarily for initial costs, machine manufacturers, however, focus too much on traction drives and too little on existing hydraulics in terms of electrification.

Electrohydraulics offers robust as well as sustainable solutions of both worlds. Reduced noise emissions, greater ranges and longer operating times are just some of the benefits that can be achieved by matching the system components.

HELAX - The Smart Solution for Lifting and Lowering Loads

The hydraulic-electric linear axis with AX technology (HELAX) offers enormous energy savings compared to the classic load-sensing hydraulics. When heavy loads are lowered, electrical energy is produced and fed back into the battery.
