A revolutionary pump

Suitable for any pumping application where high demanding production cycles, high pressure, and extreme position accuracy are required.

The Cascade Drives’ Actuator can be easily adapted to any existing plunger interface turning a hydraulic pump into an electromechanical pump.

Core components or part of system available for pump manufacturing OEM´s. Cascade Drives offers knowledge of both hardware and software engineering.

Take control of your pressure cycle

Cascade Drives pump drive technology offers a new way of delivering cost-efficient high pressure for a variety of industrial applications.

With Cascade Drives rack and pinion-based technology, you not only save energy, but you can achieve a new level of control that just isn’t available with traditional pumps. A combination of high positioning accuracy and a fully customized speed and load curve enables an optimized performance resulting in improved pressure cycle and thereby productivity.

Cascade Drives pump drives are designed for handling back-pressure and sudden pressure peaks over and over again, ensuring the reliability of your production.
