Test bench technology

In the traditional and modern automotive industries, electrolyzers, fuel cells and fuel cell systems, engine test benches, and battery test benches are used, among other things. This is because every component needs to be of the highest quality for the final product. So that you can rely on your test bench technology, we don't just offer the right products—we offer worldwide service too. With the clear goal of increasing productivity, making work more energy efficient and saving costs.

In vehicle construction, a lot of production waste is generated that must be properly processed by recycling machines. Every cubic meter counts, as volume reduction is important for transport, storage, and recycling, among other things. Our Air-X filter element technology dramatically reduces your oil tank, which saves resources and reduces your CO2 footprint. HYDAC offers solutions that make your system more energy-efficient and sustainable.

Technical cleanliness

Powerful electrical systems, increasing warranty claims, and the growing number of electric drives and hydrogen applications are putting ever-increasing demands on cleanliness management in the automotive industry. HYDAC lends you a helping hand: we inspect the cleanliness of the parts you produce and find the cause of disruptive particles on function-related surfaces. With fluid analysis and an eye for detail, we help to ensure clean processes in vehicle construction.

Industrial part washers

Consistent productivity is the goal in series production. For this reason, industrial part washers are particularly important in the automotive sector. Because to guarantee the quality of the subsequent process, the components must be free of particulate and film-like contamination. As an expert in technical cleanliness, we constantly have an eye on your required cleanliness level. That's why we offer an extensive range of fluid conditioning systems and smart sensors for monitoring. Contact us with your questions—together we can optimize your cleaning results.
