Latest Servohydraulic Design Guide is Free for the Asking

Practical Design for Fluid Power Motion Control, by Peter Nachtwey, is the latest hydraulic design guide just published by Delta Computer Systems, Battle Ground, Wash. It covers a wide range of topics, including the basics of closed-loop control, cylinder sizing, selecting valves and transducers, and motion tuning for optimal performance.

The advice given in this practical publication is intended to help readers build machines optimized for precise position and pressure/force control, ensuring that both the hydraulics, electrics, and controls are tuned for performance and precision.

Below is the book's Table of Contents, which summarizes topics covered.
