Hydraulics for the recycling industry

Powerful, reliable and efficient

With the constantly growing importance of recycling, the demands on the hydraulics used in it are also increasing.. Scrap shears, shredders and channel balers should not only be powerful and reliable – they should be quiet and cost-effective too. In order to achieve this, they must offer performance, robustness and the precision of hydraulic systems. And if you really want to be successful, the solutions from Bosch Rexroth are the perfect choice. After all, you can take advantage of the benefits of Bosch Rexroth hydraulics over the entire product life cycle.
