HYDAC

HYDAC has been selected as an ABA100® Winner for Training Excellence in The Australian Business Awards 2020. The Australian Business Award for Training Excellence [TRX] recognises organisations that have achieved outstanding results through innovative training initiatives.

Founded in 1963 in Germany as a company for hydraulic accumulators, HYDAC International is today an internationally active group. Operating in over 50 countries with more than 9,000 employees and 500 sales and services partners worldwide, HYDAC has established itself as a world leader company in motion control and fluid technology. Its international production facilities are located close to customers, and all components and systems are conceived and implemented in-house. Its experienced industry specialists develop innovative products and efficient solutions, including the development of processes to ensure high-quality, and cost-effective production.

HYDAC Australia offers an extensive product range to cover all areas of fluid power and is a competent partner for all projects related to fluid technology in connection with hydraulics, automation & control, process and engineering.

HYDAC Australia’s success is also due to its ability to locally design, engineer, manufacture and test its products. These products are under a quality system certified in accordance with the new 2015 version of the ISO 9001. HYDAC also has experience across all electrical areas. HYDAC’s electricians have over 25 years experience with hazardous area installation. The designs and installations are based on IECEX standard and AS/NZS Australian as well as New Zealand standard.

Fluid power systems are everywhere. These systems range from very simple sub-assemblies, to large and often technically major complex installations. HYDAC Training Centre is the only one of its kind in the country, providing customised training solutions to organisations by tailoring the courses based on their particular needs.

HYDAC’s method is to not simply provide the industry with a few broad-stroked “Hydraulic” courses but to separate and arrange the training into manageable learning blocks, which are centred on the very different subcomponents found in modern systems. From understanding the basics of hydraulics to tackling specific products, such as thermal optimisation, filtration and electronics, HYDAC’s courses are designed to keep engineers on top of their game.

The Australian HYDAC Training Centre has been developed on the German model. Through feedback from their customers and their employees, HYDAC Australia has analysed the requests in term of engineering training and came up with their own concept. It helped HYDAC tailoring its Training Centre to the way it is today: eleven courses covering all aspects of fluid engineering, with some being nationally recognised in Australia.
