Root out energy wasters and increasing profitability at the plant equipment level.

North American manufacturers have leveraged nearly every cost cutting opportunity available to compete effectively. Increasing the power usage efficiency of machinery, however, is one strategy many manufacturers have yet to fully optimize.

As a result, dollars spent on the factory floor get wasted in high utility bills, particularly on poorly designed hydraulically driven equipment. In fact, some hydraulic systems are only 15 percent efficient but few customers address these problems due to their perceived complexity.

Berendsen Fluid Power–one of North America’s largest distributors of fluid power, motion control products and services–provides Power Management Solutions designed to reduce costs and increase profits.

In this presentation from his webinar, “How to Slash Power Usage Costs of Hydraulic Systems and Increase Profitability”, Tom Wells, Industrial Technical Specialist with Berendsen Fluid Power explained:

  • How inefficient HYDRAULIC systems waste energy
  • How to identify major energy wasters
  • Options to reduce the operating costs of hydraulic machinery
  • Factors to consider in selecting the right technology
