Hydraulic drive technology


Hydraulic drive technology is a technology that uses the pressure energy of a liquid to transmit power. It is based on the incompressibility of the pressure, which transmits the pressure through the liquid in a closed system, so that the liquid can generate the driving force. Specifically, hydraulic drive technology converts the mechanical energy of an electric motor or other power source into liquid pressure energy through a hydraulic pump, and then converts the liquid pressure energy into mechanical energy through a hydraulic motor to drive load movement.


Hydraulic drive technology has the characteristics of high power density, wide speed range, strong load impact resistance, easy operation, etc., and is widely used in many fields, the following are some of the most widely used fields:

1. Construction engineering: The application of hydraulic drive technology in the field of construction engineering is very common, especially in large machinery and equipment. For example, cranes, concrete pump trucks, excavators and other machinery and equipment have widely adopted hydraulic drive technology to achieve more precise and efficient work. These devices use a hydraulic system to control a variety of power tools, which not only improves work efficiency, but also enhances safety.

2. Automotive engineering: Hydraulic drive technology also plays a key role in the manufacturing and use of automobiles. The diesel fuel injection system, gearbox, braking system, etc. of the car all use hydraulic transmission technology to ensure the smooth and safe operation of the car. In addition, hydraulic drive technology is also applied to the steering, clutch, suspension and other systems of the car, which further improves the performance and service life of the car.

3. Industrial manufacturing field: In modern industrial production, hydraulic equipment is widely used in various mechanical equipment, such as CNC machine tools, presses, steel cutting machines, etc. These devices are hydraulically driven by a variety of tools for precise control and operation, increasing productivity. At the same time, hydraulic drive technology is also widely used in industries such as petroleum, steel, marine and aviation.

4. Agricultural field: In agricultural machinery, hydraulic drive technology also plays an important role. For example, harvesters, tractors, planters and other equipment have adopted hydraulic systems to control functions such as steering, lifting, and adjustment, which improves the operation efficiency and accuracy of agricultural machinery.

5. Aerospace field: The application of hydraulic drive technology in the aerospace field is equally important. The control system of air vehicles such as aircraft and rockets uses a large number of hydraulic equipment to control the movement and operation of various mechanical parts by distributing oil to ensure flight safety and stability.


With the advancement of industrial automation and intelligent manufacturing, hydraulic technology has also begun to develop in the direction of intelligence and automation. With sensors and electronic controllers, the hydraulic system can be controlled more efficiently and precisely. However, the development of hydraulic technology also faces some challenges, such as improving the reliability and safety of the system, reducing energy consumption and reducing pollutant emissions. As a result, hydraulic components and systems need to be designed and manufactured with a greater focus on quality and reliability, as well as enhanced safety protection and monitoring.
