Industrial production is in transformation. Industry 4.0 will change the production environment in future and thus also the requirements of hydraulic systems developed for industry. The need for valve and electronic components will significantly increase. These needs range from redundant switching position monitoring through to customer-specific constructions. However, one of the industry’s key objectives is to develop a precise type of hydraulics that can be adapted to different machinery and has sensitive control characteristics. This can be achieved successfully with intelligent electronics and the corresponding software and guarantees precise and dynamic motion sequences in an industrial production facility.
