FF Series

Synergy of electric and hydraulic drive.

FF Series Overview

The brand new FF range of hybrid machines combines the benefits of electric drive with the practical features of hydraulic operation, resulting in the perfect blend of efficiency and value. The FF series uses servo motors for absolute accuracy with the combination of hydraulic drive for linear movements, like carriage movements and core pull sequences. Optimising the drive type for each movement gives you a more accurate, efficient and repeatable machine.
