 Hytec Engineering invests in efficiency:

 

Hytec Engineering is that latest Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group company to invest in a new, state-of-the-art production floor. An additional 1 000 m2 of floor space; upgrades to shop equipment; and an optimised process flow means increased production capabilities and efficiencies.

With 1 350 000 Nm of torque, Hytec Engineering’s upgraded stripping bench makes quick work of stripping even the largest hydraulic cylinders.

Our new 3-stage painting booths speed up the process at cylinder painting, including specially formulated epoxy-based paint used in marine and other applications.

 

New sponge blasting equipment optimises the speed and safety of the removing paint and other contaminants from cylinders, and allows for the application of specialised surface finishes.

Developed in-house using technologies from across the Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group companies, Hytec Engineering’s test bench tests each cylinder before it leaves the factory to ensure quality and performance.
