What is fluid technology and why is it needed?

Fluid power deals with components, systems and technologies that are linear and rotating Transfer forces and Generate movements. Oil is used in hydraulics, air in pneumatics, more precisely compressed air, and vacuum technology creates a vacuum that can be used to grip components, for example. While the good old hydraulics are easy to control high forces is predestined, pneumatics is suitable for applications that require high speeds, but more low forces have to transfer. Fluid technology can be found in the drive technology for machines and systems of all kinds.

Dispense liquid sealant directly onto automotive components

Henkel is now presenting a milestone for automotive production with a new technology for liquid gaskets. With Loctite AA 5884's directly doseable polyacrylate gasket technology, users get increased oil resistance and the proven lower gas permeability. This reduces the overall costs.

Fluid technology for machines and systems

Fluid technology fulfills the requirements in plant and mechanical engineering often drive engineering tasks. It is used to generate linear and rotating movements or forces hydraulically or pneumatically. If the application requires high, easily controllable forces, this is a task for the hydraulics. Pneumatics, on the other hand, are predestined when high speeds with low forces are required. In vacuum technology, on the other hand, negative pressure is generated. One area of ​​application is the handling of parts.

A pair of compressors or Compressor compresses and compresses air, water or oil according to the displacement principle or according to the turbo principle. Whether e.g. B. screw compressors, piston compressors or rotary compressors are used and regardless of the principle, they all have in common that they energy efficient have to be. This will become mandatory from July 2023 IE4 Binding energy efficiency level. We present to you new products on the market and use cases:
