Powerful and simple, singularly reliable
In 2013, the Strategic Business Unit Automation Technology generated sales of 59.4 million euros, an increase of 4.6 percent over the previous year’s sales of 56.8 million euros.
Starting from a strong market position for hydraulic components used in press brakes, for piezo actuators, and for microhydraulic solutions used in a wide variety of industrial applications, the Strategic Business Unit Automation Technology is pursuing a new development approach: the symbiotic blend of hydraulics, mechanics and electronics. The objective is to develop powerful, simple and reliable actuators. The Strategic Business Unit Automation Technology does so in two Business Segments:
■ Compact Motion Technology
Electrohydraulic actuators and compact axes as well as hydraulic and piezo-electric components for all HOERBIGER mechanical engineering markets—covering everything from machine tools to medical technology.
■ Valve Automation
Electrohydraulic actuators for the oil, gas, and process industries, for the energy sector, and for the water and wastewater industry.
The intelligent combination of function, comfort and reliability—that is the challenge behind the goal of carefully crafted actuator technology.
