General
Hydraulic asset support management

From its workshops in Auckland the company provides a 24-7 service to leading hydraulic users across a broad range of industries. 

As a single source supplier Global Hydraulics offers an unparalleled range of hydraulic components. The experienced engineering team can provide a solution that meets your needs from a single component to the design and build of a complete system. The range of products Global draws from is described as the best in the business.

Global Hydraulics workshops can fabricate parts, modify, recondition, overhaul and re-manufacture all makes and models of hydraulic pumps, motors, valves and cylinders.

performance motion control has been around for a while, before the 1980s analog systems were mainly used. This gave reasonable performance but had limited flexibility to make changes.

Digital systems made a significant leap forward but the complexity of system development and ease of use arose.

Global Hydraulics, aware of this, observed the industry desire to marry these two worlds  ease of use and high flexibility.

This has been a key motivator in its research and education in the development of a new approach.

By selecting the right hardware and software architectures it can be realised cost effectively.

By using the platform strategy and developing a layered software concept control can be portable. With this specialized approach and associated tools, Global can apply the developing technology to multiple products and applications.

Global Hydraulics is actively marching forward with world leaders toward a new approach for high performance motion control.

 

Fluid condition analysis

Outside of its usefulness as a proactive maintenance tool, fluid condition monitoring can be equally effective as a first-alert to impending machine failure (i.e. it is also a predictive maintenance technique).

When a machine failure is in progress there is a precipitous generation of wear debris resulting in an abnormal presence of particles in the fluids. This chain-reaction of a few particles generating more and more particles is an incontestable indication of progressive failure. Contamination control procedures and equipment will avoid this problem through correctly implemented Fluid Condition Analysis (FCA). The regular monitoring provides extremely accurate trends which determine distinct shifts in performance or contaminant levels allowing sufficient time to schedule remedial maintenance to eradicate the fault.

The employment of quality fluid conditioning equipment is necessary in the eradication of faults preceding cataclysmic component failure  and Global Hydraulics has New Zealands widest range of specialist fluid conditioning equipment.

High performance motion control

Realising the ever increasing interface between drive, actuation and control, Global has focused extensively on gaining authority in the new field of closed loop and motion control. High performance motion control has been around for a while, before the 1980s analog systems were mainly used. This gave reasonable performance but had limited flexibility to make changes.
