The number of years of technical experience within our engineering team.
Thinking outside the box | We provide market-leading hydraulic solutions for machinery and applications used in warehousing, distribution, disposal and other areas of the materials handling sector.
We can supply standard off-the-shelf components, including: axial piston pumps, vane pumps and radial piston motors, as well as custom made hydraulic systems tailored to our customer’s exact requirements.
A materials handling equipment manufacturer and service provider, with an extensive hire fleet and field service vehicles and technicians, contacted us for a new bespoke hydraulic system design that could be adapted for all makes of forklifts. The customer explains:
We wanted a system that would suit almost every forklift truck manufacturers product range, rather than having to order in specific parts to suit specific OEMs; something we could keep on the shelf, knowing we could modify it to suit. Hydraulics Online designed a solution that could do this for us, and overnight we went from having a six-week lead time – as dictated by the ordering and delivery of parts – to being able to offer a lead time measured in hours.
Hydraulics Online quickly understood the problem and drew up a design.
The benefit? The project was a huge success and turned out to be a very profitable partnership. Our client improved their lead-time to customers whilst keeping costs down and stock lean and in the nine years since, has sold thousands of the units in the UK and Europe.
Hydraulics Online are the only company we’ve come across where we are able to give them these problem scenarios and they come back to us with a solution. They have a vast knowledge of their technology and of system design and, because they are independent and not tied to any one manufacturer, I know they are giving us the best solution and the best products for that solution.
