Mobile and industrial hydraulics

Hydraulics can be used wherever force and movement need to be controlled, for example, in construction equipment, agricultural machines, industrial hydraulics and materials handling. The innovative solutions of Bucher Hydraulics for hydraulic drive and control systems are focused on future trends and the requirements of the users. The immense flexibility of modern hydraulics is demonstrated when they are combined with easy-to-use electronic controls.

Elevator hydraulics

Drive systems from Bucher Hydraulics for hydraulic elevators have a proven track record over decades of daily use. The main advantages of hydraulic solutions are freedom of design, easy assembly, low-maintenance technology, long service life and the latest valve technology.

Hydraulic drives for high-voltage switch gear

For almost 35 years Bucher Hydraulics has been developing and producing hydraulic valves, control modules and complete hydraulic systems for use with high-voltage switch gear.

Dyna-Lift®

Ergonomic, height-adjustable workbenches are quicklybecoming the standard in the field of industrial assembly, so Dyna-Lift®, being adjustable for height, is a sought-after solution. In addition to work tables, other common applications include hospital beds, assembly line fixtures and rehabilitation tables.

«We achieve our objective only if our customers achieve success with their products and our hydraulic solutions. The basis for our success is an intensive working relationship with customers, from development to production.»
