Speed Control of Hydraulic Motors

Either of two basic methods are used for controlling the speed of a hydraulic motor. First, a variable-displacement pump controls flow to the motor. This configuartion is commonly known as a hydrostatic transmission. Second, a proportional or...

Avoiding The Bounce

As piston moves from right to left, exhaust air vents through the center of the end cap (top). The cushion sleeve engages the cushion seal, blocking free-flowing exhaust air (middle). Exhausting air can only escape past the...

Is air or water getting into your hydraulic fluid?

The hydraulic oil level in our molding machine reservoir gradually rises after we start the unit up. This causes oil to eventually blow out the breather cap when the clamp and injection cylinders retract. Several fixeddisplacement vane pumps are mounted o...
