Agricultural environments are challenging for product developers. Deployed equipment is exposed to harsh weather conditions, dirt and debris, in addition to being in constant use. Hydraulic cylinders are designed to withstand these difficult conditions. They offer robustness, durability and wear resistance.

This reliability ensures that the agricultural machines deliver consistent performance and withstand the demands of daily work. The high-quality coating of hydraulic systems is crucial for this, for example in milking robots. In addition to corrosion and wear resistance, the focus is also on easy cleaning and disinfection.

"Our internationally active customer wants a coating for the hydraulic cylinders that is as smooth and non-porous as possible. The accumulation of impurities is minimized, the cleaning process is more efficient, and the service life is extended. The Ematal coating is convincing for this application," explains René Schaffner, Managing Director of GRIBI Hydraulics AG.

The BWB competence center in Schlieren focuses exclusively on Ematal coating and has continuously expanded its capacities over the past 15 years. In the coming months, the capability will be expanded by a further 50%. The Ematal specialists work closely with customers from various industries to provide lasting protection for the surface of their aluminum components.
