Hydraulic power units for thermoform presses need to meet highest requirements in terms of dynamics and precision in axis control. Like in the case of our long-term customer, RUCKS Maschinenbau GmbH in Saxony. The company has been manufacturing customized presses and automation solutions for the European market for over 175 years. During the course of a current project we were tasked with the development and construction of a complete hydraulic power unit for a thermoform cell or thermoform press.
In addition to the machine safety, the customer's key requirements included the precise synchronization of the unit's four axes as well as the option to control each one separately.
