Hydraulic Training Course

Basic Hydraulic Design

Course: BHD
Subject: Basic Hydraulic Design
Duration: 3 days
Location: Bosch Rexroth Head Office, St Neots

  • The BHD course takes a more mathematical approach to the theory covered in the MH or MH-s courses. After covering basic theory and operation of hydraulic components, the emphasis moves to circuit design and basic project work.
  • The course is intended for design and technical personnel who are involved with machine design and the specification of hydraulic components and systems.
  • Although this course is not intended to fully instruct the student in proportional technology it is inevitable that this subject is covered as this technology forms an integral part of modern hydraulic systems.
  • Participants attending this course should have a basic grounding in mathematics and physics.
  • Attendance on either MH or MH-s course is the basic requirement for this course
  • Design and technical personnel.
  • Practical exercises form an important part of this course. These are carried out using our range of specially designed training rigs
  • Course participants are asked to bring current circuit diagrams to these sessions where time will be devoted to their explanation
