Testimonial: Rexroth Hydraulics

Thanks for your help. Much appreciated, fantastic service and a quick turn around for the machine… We don’t really have a hydraulic supplier to speak of and we would appreciate you coming aboard.

Words from a new customer, a prepared foods supplier for UK & global food retailers and outlets, needing to keep their production lines up and running shortly before Christmas. One call to the team here was all it took… So you may have us to “thank” for some of those extra snacks and treats you enjoyed over the festive season!

Bosch Rexroth Products

Bosch-Rexroth-Hydraulics1In this instance the customer was looking for replacement Bosch Rexroth equipment for one of their food processors and mixers. You can find out more about Bosch Rexroth here or you click through on the following links if you’d like to find out more about us and our customers, the markets and other hydraulic manufacturers that we deal with and the hydraulic products and services that we can provide.

Remember, if it’s hydraulic we can design it, supply it, solve it or repair it!

Commercial Triple Gear Pump

Here at Hydraulics Online, our sales and technical team are regularly tasked with finding the proverbial needle in the haystack; sourcing obsolete or discontinued hydraulic components, or swapping original hydraulic equipment into modern, off-the-shelf standard products, with minimal, if any, re-engineering.

And we regularly have customers who cannot confirm what they actually need us to supply… identification plates and serial numbers on old hydraulic equipment are often worn away or buried in years of dirt, making it seemingly impossible to identify what is underneath and inside!

However, thanks to the wonders of technology, and in particular smart phones, we haven’t been beaten yet. All our technical team need is a photo or two to work with…

A long-standing overseas customer contacted the team with a series of pictures of a triple gear pump that had originally been fitted to a Coles 1986 crane. They knew nothing more.

Triple Gear Pump

The team were able to identify the unit, a Commercial Hydraulics triple gear pump, straight away and as well as quoting on a replacement unit, they also quoted on a quality, direct equivalent that was available ex-stock. Needless to say the customer ordered the direct equivalent unit: a British-assembled cast iron gear triple pump, pictured here.

You can find more information on Commercial Hydraulics cast iron gear pumps and motors (PGP / PGM 030 / 050 / 075 / 300 / 315 / 330 / 350 / 365 series) here, or you can hop over to our catalogue to view some of the hydraulic pumps and cast iron gear pumps that we regularly supply.

Radial Piston Hydraulic Motor

At Hydraulics Online, we’re passionate about all things hydraulic, and simply love the diversity of our customer base and the vast range of applications that we’re involved with every day. Nothing ever fazes the technical team, who relish the challenges thrown at them… In fact, they’re regularly told that their hydraulic expertise is second to none!

We work with an extensive range of leading and lesser-known manufacturers from around the world on a daily basis too, one of these being Italgroup who have been producing radial piston hydraulic motors since 1985. Made entirely in Europe, Italgroup pride themselves on their innovative, customisable product range, offering quality and versatility; their radial piston hydraulic motors are also directly interchangeable with many competitors’ products.

As an example, a leisure & fairground attraction provider was due to attend a prestigious national event when their attraction’s main hydraulic drive failed. The replacement, competitor product was on a four week lead time, meaning that the ride would be out of operation for the whole event and all revenue lost. Our team were consulted and a suitable direct replacement was sourced from Italgroup and flown into the UK within 48 hours, with no re-engineering required. The customer was able to meet their commitment for the major weekend event and, critically, protected their revenue. Happy days!

Soon afterwards, following a search on the internet, Hydraulics Online were contacted by a shredding and data disposal company to design and supply an efficient hydraulic system to run a mobile compactor and crusher. Our technical team proposed a hydraulic system using Italgroup radial piston motors. The vehicle was delivered to Hydraulics Online’s premises and our hydraulic engineer installed the PTO driven power source and hydraulic control valves. A second vehicle has since been fitted out to the same specification.

We could go on, but as a final example, Hydraulics Online were contacted by a national household power generation company, following the failure of the main hydraulic starter (radial piston) motor on a LM6000 GT package. The original unit was a Bosch-Rexroth hydraulic motor and was on a long lead time. A hydraulic engineer visited the site within an hour of contact, identified the hydraulic motor and specified a suitable equivalent replacement hydraulic motor from Italgroup which was available from Hydraulics Online stock. This was delivered to site the same day, minimising downtime again and Hydraulics Online are now a preferred supplier for hydraulic equipment and components.

Marine Winch Motor

Even the most well-established and reputable of hydraulic companies turn to the Hydraulics Online technical team when it comes to sourcing hydraulic equipment…

A UK company specialising in the service and repair of hydraulic equipment contacted us on behalf of a customer overseas who was looking for a radial piston motor to replace an existing unit used on a marine winch system.  Not only was the original motor now obsolete, but it also had a non-standard shaft.

Working from photos taken of the original unit, our technical team identified that an Italgroup (IAMD series) radial piston motor with a bespoke shaft would fit the bill nicely.

Italgroup’s European-made radial piston motors are available in displacements ranging from 20cc to 8000cc, with fixed and dual speed versions and can also be combined with planetary gearboxes, brakes and valves of various kinds. The range of Italgroup radial piston motors can also be directly interchanged with: Dinamic Oil hydraulic motors, Duesterloh (Dusterloh) motors, Staffa hydraulic motors (Kawasaki Precision Machinery), Calzoni radial piston motors, and Sai hydraulic motors.

Marine Winch

Some of the features of the IAMD series motor include:

  • fixed displacement;
  • displacement range between 200 cc/rev – 8000 cc/rev;
  • heavy duty motor;
  • higher mechanical efficiency, speed and power than standard IAM series;
  • interchangeable mounting face;
  • bespoke shafts for standard radial piston motors upon request.

Remanufactured Denison Hydraulics 800 Series Motor

Trying to find the right hydraulic equipment at the right price and lead time can be a challenge at the best of times, but when what you are looking for is no longer even manufactured it can seem impossible. However, it’s not usually a problem for the team here at Hydraulics Online, where our sourcing hydraulic equipment expertise is second to none!

A new customer, an overseas procurement company specialising in mechanical and structural engineering supplies, approached our technical team with a picture (above) of an old Denison Hydraulics 800 series (MF08) motor – the unit no longer functioned properly and they desperately needed a replacement for their customer. The bad news was that the motor was obsolete, with no modern-day, direct-equivalent available.

The good news is that we are always up for a challenge here at Hydraulics Online, and are frequently tasked with finding the proverbial needle in the haystack; sourcing seemingly obsolete or discontinued hydraulic components, or swapping original hydraulic equipment into modern, off-the-shelf standard products, with minimal, if any, re-engineering.

In this case we were able to offer for the motor to be re-manufactured – a product recovery process so that the Dension MF08 motor was made to function “as good as new”. The customer was happy with this development and gave the go-ahead… and the remanufactured Denison Hydraulics 800 series (MF08) motor has now been shipped to the client in India.

Testimonial: Waste Management and Recycling

We were technically “closed” for the Christmas and New Year holiday period, but that didn’t stop the team from helping a new customer who was in a catastrophic breakdown situation… In fact, praise needs to go to our Managing Director who “pulled a few strings”, personally collected goods from the airport and managed their onward delivery to the customer – a national, leading integrated waste management and recycling company.

Mark, I just want to thank you for all your assistance over the holiday period, it is greatly appreciated and wish you a happy and prosperous 2015. We were back operational just in time to meet our deadline for production.

Case Study: Leading Global Energy Company

Hydraulics Online were contacted late on 17th June with a requirement for a number of Denison proportional amplifier cards; they were needed for one of our customer’s exploration rigs in Angola and, as is often the case, it was urgent… there was no time to spare.

The customer was quoted the following morning, the lead time being 8-10 weeks. The customer placed their order on 20th June, acknowledging that their target date for delivery (4th July) had been somewhat ambitious and would not be achieved. Or so it had it seemed.

Keen to improve on delivery if at all possible, the sales team approached a potential alternative supplier and successfully negotiated expedited delivery of the goods within the same week. Cue one happy customer who took delivery of their Denison proportional amplifier cards on 30th June… 4 days ahead of their original schedule!

Search for Missing Flight MH370

Hydraulics Online were approached by a new customer, a Malaysian-based marine maintenance  company, on 19th March 2014. The customer had been having difficulty in identifying and sourcing the hydraulic parts needed to complete the work required on a Malaysian Royal Navy vessel.

Despite the difficulties that the customer had faced elsewhere, Hydraulics Online were able to quote the customer on the same day, advising that the goods would be on a 3 week lead time from receipt of order. The customer ordered on the last day of March and accepted the delivery timeframe of 19th – 26th April.

On 4th April, the customer phoned Hydraulics Online and advised that the vessel had just been called up to help in the search for missing flight MH370… was there anything that Hydraulics Online could do to expedite delivery?

Within half an hour the simple answer was “yes”… and the hydraulic equipment was despatched from Hydraulics Online less than a week later. Cue one more happy new customer who, in turn, could deliver excellent service to their own customer – the Malaysian Royal Navy:

We received the goods safely this afternoon and hope to prolong our good relationship and do further business with you in the future.

Case Study: Global Marine Services Supplier

The Customer: Marine Services Supplier to the Global Oil and Gas Industry

The Task: Hydraulics Online were contacted following the failure of a hydraulic pump on the customer’s vessel in New Zealand.

The Solution: A replacement Vickers vane pump was available “ex stock” and collection was arranged for the following morning to take it to London, Heathrow Airport – the beginning of a 11,500 journey. It’s a small world…
