Fluid power is, quite simply, the use of liquids or gases to control apparatuses that push, pull, lift, rotate, or grip loads. It is used for tough tasks such as boring tunnels or gentle operations like lifting and stacking glass sheets. While industrial and everyday applications alike embrace this technology, it cannot function reliably without high-quality components. The demands placed on fluid power systems are constantly changing as the industry seeks greater efficiency and speed at higher operating temperatures and pressures.
Optimize your fluid power application with automatic screw machined & cold headed/formed products, and fasteners from Abbott Interfast LLC.

Fluid power systems come in all shapes and sizes, and they are developed for a variety of tasks. They are found in everything from automobile assembly lines and passenger airliners to packaging mechanisms and earth-moving equipment. Business sectors that most commonly use fluid power include:
- Material Handling
Unique Demands of Fluid Power
The flow of fluids and gases is typically under compression and any pressure loss or leakage can degrade performance and is a potential threat to employees and the surrounding environment. These issues can lead to expensive recalls, negative customer feedback, and diminished profit margins. Our patented sealing nut, the HydraLok™ can solve the problem.
This nut calls for easy application, requires no surface preparation, gives complete metal to metal bearing surfaces, and saves installation time, solving the leakage issue at the threaded joint. The nut is impervious to solvents/acids and is reusable.
Fluid power is a fantastic technology. Designing systems that operate more safely and efficiently is essential, and the acquisition of quality components is critical. Fluid power systems are built using a myriad of components, including:
