Economies of scale
When we speak of economies of scale, we usually mean the reduction of costs per unit of production by increasing production volume.
The theory of economies of scale is based on several possible savings potentials. Examples of this include:
- Obtaining quantity discounts through higher purchase volumes.
- Better distribution of overhead costs (e.g. of administration) over a higher number of units.
- Increasing the degree of automation for larger batch sizes.
The difference between the maximum lifting height and the overall height of a lift table is called the effective stroke.
The generic term electrohydraulics refers to assemblies which are composed of both electrical and hydraulic components.
This combination can be found in almost all types of hydraulically operated machines and plants. In a hydraulic lift table, column lift or goods lift, for example, the hydraulic pump is normally driven by an electric motor. However, the combination of hydraulic and electric components is much more common in hydraulic valves. Most of the spool and poppet valves are switched by means of an electric coil.
This allows you to easily combine the advantages of the electrical and hydraulic systems. Electrical components, for example, are characterised by effortless control, while hydraulic components have very high power density.
The term emission generally refers to the discharge or emission of disruptive elements into the environment.
The type of disruption is usually defined by a more appropriate detailed description, such as noise emission.
