Concept studies

We design and update manufacturer-independent drive and control systems, ranging from simple motion control systems to electrohydraulically controlled axles.


We create simulation models for validating drive concepts, enabling an assessment to be made at an early stage even before the first prototype is built.


We use state-of-the-art development tools such as CODESYS, TwinCAT, LabView and Matlab/Simulink/Stateflow to rapidly develop software for controlling machines.

Measuring & testing

We measure your machine to enable commissioning and testing to be carried out and provide you with informative analyses of its dynamic behaviour. We test machine software on automated test rigs.


HYDRIVE Engineering is part of the Smart Workbench research project

HYDRIVE Engineering is involved in the research project "Smart Workbench". The company therefore again emphasises on its claim to acitvely push research.
