Hydraulic Control of Machine Tools presents the wide range of application of hydraulic drives. This book discusses the methods, principles of design of hydraulic systems, and their equipment. Organized into 11 chapters, this book begins with an overview of hydraulic drives that utilize mainly the kinetic energy of the flow. This text then examines the tasks of hydraulic fluids not only to induce and receive motion but also to be a reliable lubricant for the hydraulic mechanisms. Other chapters consider the various points to be considered in the calculation of hydraulic systems. This book discusses as well the various types of hydraulic circuits that are used in machine tools. The final chapter deals with several examples of hydraulic calculations, including calculations of the axial force exerted by the flow on a valve. This book is a valuable resource for hydraulic specialists and mechanical engineers.
