Machining centre technology

Machining centre technology

Innovative solutions specially for machining centres

HYDAC has a wealth of components and services specifically developed for machining centres.

The components have evolved from the fields of hydraulics, cooling, electronics, and cooling lubricant management.

Intelligent integration of these products creates innovative and technologically advanced subsystems and complete systems for use in machining centres.

HYDAC CMX hardware and software suite for hydraulic process digitalisation 

The CMX suite is equipped with hardware and software kits that provide individual modules for digitalising machine functions, states, and processes either on local servers on the customer’s premises or in the cloud.

In addition to sounding malfunction alarms and providing visual representations of machines and production lines, the suite can suggest recommended actions and identify potential optimisations.

The user can programme their own logic or integrate their own algorithms.

The CMX suite undergoes constant development, especially in terms of responding to customer requirements.

  • Connecting data sources – CMX FieldIntegrator
  • Evaluation and interpretation – CMX Analytics
  • Visualisation – CMX Dash
  • Documentation, warnings, and recommendations – CMX Alert
  • Storage and management – CMX Core


HYDAC CMX applications for machining centres

HYDAC CMX applications span the following.

  • Stipulations in the machine or system operating instructions must be followed. Edge at the machine (Data+)
  • On customer servers (SCADA)
  • As a CMX cloud service
