Hydraulics in Your Industry

Africa requires high levels of technical support and maximum uptime through quick maintenance and repair of hydraulic systems and components. For over 50 years, we have served the continent.

From the hydraulic systems controlling the sluice gates at Roseires Dam to the precise linear motion control of the world’s first fully automated forensic DNA system, we innovate customer-centric solutions for all of Africa’s industries: marine, mining, material handling, oil and gas, power generation, agriculture, automotive and general industry.

Forensic DNA Analysis System

Tectra Automation supplied Bosch Rexroth pneumatics, linear bearings, robots, PLCs and servo drives to the Pretoria-based forensic DNA analysis lab – one of SA’s longest linear systems at 37 meters.

De Beers Marine, Namibia

Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group of Companies supplied the total marine installations and maintains the hydraulic systems for offshore launching and mining vessels in Namibia. The Group and De Beers Marine have been working together for over 30 years.

Roseires Dam, Sudan

Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group of Companies designed, manufactured and installed 12 large hydraulic cylinders providing 160 ton lifting force, power packs and linkage systems with a complete electronic control system to replace the hydraulic systems for controlling water flow at the Roseires Dam, Sudan.

Hydraulics on the Move: Containerised Hydraulic Workshop

Hytec Services Africa (HSA) has launched its containerised hydraulic hose workshops to provide a comprehensive onsite hose and fittings service to its mining customers across Africa.

Set up in refurbished and branded shipping containers varying in size from 20 to 40 feet, the workshops not only provide hose and fittings services, but also enable Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group of Companies and HSA to supply its entire range of hydraulic services on a mine site – effectively functioning as an onsite mobile branch.

In order to provide an onsite end-to-end hydraulic offering, the workshop services include Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group of Companies’ hydraulic cylinder Service Exchange Programme as well as supplying new, or providing services for, pumps, filtration systems, drives, valves, piston motors and hydraulic maintenance tools. It is relatively easy to pack up and pick-up the container for relocation which allows for full mobility and plug-and-play operation.

We are also able to control and stock other hydraulic components on request, as yet another Bosch Rexroth value-added benefit.
