Predictive maintenance in hydraulic systems proves cheaper in the long run

20 August, 2019

The operation of hydraulic systems is clearly critical, regardless of whether they function for 10 minutes every few weeks, or 24/7. Achieving an uptime utopia, however, depends largely on the successful implementation of an optimised maintenance strategy. In the hydraulics arena, many different maintenance strategies can be found, including those based on breakdown, preventative, predictive and proactive approaches. Today, there is a growing trend in support of a predictive maintenance approach, the explanation for which is outlined in a new white paper written by independent industry expert Steve Skinner in association with Webtec.

Safety through simulation

19 February, 2019

Simulators are a vital tool in modern industry. We see them used in aviation to aid pilots in learning the cockpit controls and controlling airplanes; in medicine to give clinicians greater exposure to highly complex procedures; and even in sports like motor racing to allow drivers to learn every corner of the track. While simulators allow users to hone their particular skillsets, John Curno, regional sales manager at Bosch Rexroth, shows how simulators are being used in the offshore industry to improve safety among the workforce.
