Hydraulic Industry in India’s Development

The Indian hydraulics engineering industry has been the key player in the country’s rapid economic development, in both the arenas of infrastructure and production. In particular, the segment of earthmoving and construction equipment (ECE) such as hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, backhoe loaders, motor graders, vibratory compactors, cranes, dumpers, tippers, forklifts trucks, dozers, pavers, batching plants, etc. is based on applications of hydraulics technology. Over the past two decades, the ECE has made enormous progress and grown both in size and diversity.

The driving force in a hydraulic system is the electromechanical actuator, a tiny component that is capable of performing Titanic feats. It is similar to mechanical actuators except that the control knob or handle is replaced with an electric motor. Rotary motion of the motor is converted to linear displacement. Read more
