PSH Press Drive

Productivity and efficiency play an immensely important role in manufacturing com­panies. This is one reason why servo presses are being used more and more in forming technology. Voith's innovative PSH press drive gives you a highly flexible drive system for this type of press work. It allows you to design your motion se­quence and press force in a precise and highly flexible manner.

The power transmission in the PSH is hydraulic. Nevertheless, the system is com­pact and requires considerably less installation space than other drive systems. It operates without conventional valve and control technology. Actively controlled servo pumps generate a volume flow only when needed in the hydraulic system. This re­duces the energy consumption of your press by up to 60%.
