The "Hydraulic line equipment" practical manual

"Hydraulic line equipment", the practical manual published by HANSA-FLEX, sets standards. Dipl.-Ing. Helmut Wetteborn has written a book that deals clearly and comprehensibly with the essential aspects of hydraulic line equipment. It is indispensable for everyone who wants to make hydraulic line systems more economical and safer as functional components of fixed or mobile hydraulics. 
The HANSA-FLEX Group actively works to create efficient line equipment in its services in the field of fluid technology. Most technical reference works pay scant attention to the subject of hydraulic line equipment, and when they do the information presented is not always up-to-date. "We therefore decided to make a substantial investment in preparing a manual that is relevant to practical situations, to present current knowledge in a clearly understandable manner, and to serve as a comprehensive reference work for planning, manufacturing, installing and operating hydraulic line systems for all those who are keen to make such systems safer and more economical", explains Uwe Buschmann, managing director of HANSA-FLEX Hydraulik GmbH. 
In Dipl.-Ing. Helmut Wetteborn, we have obtained the services of a writer with many years of practical experience in the challenging world of line hydraulics, who is also able to explain even extremely complicated technical concepts clearly and engagingly. The co-founder of the HANSA-FLEX training centre has been demonstrating his gift since 1999 in the countless seminars he has led for HANSA-FLEX technicians and participants from among our customers, and in a series of special lectures at technical universities. "From the beginning, Helmut Wetteborn has commanded our respect and appreciation as a man who is unfailingly open to new questions and continues to search for answers. He has never lost the desire to constantly learn something new", says Uwe Buschmann. "That made our decision to entrust the writing of this book to Dipl.-Ing. Helmut Wetteborn very easy."
