Welcome to the website of the Institute of Machine Design and Hydraulic Drives!

The Institute of Machine Design and Hydraulic Drives (IMH) is part of the Mechatronics Department. It represents the following areas in teaching and research: machine design (machine elements, engineering design, kinematics) and fluid technologies (hydraulic and pneumatic drives and other fluid systems and components). In all its activities IMH tries to successfully implement mechatronic ideas and concepts.

Majority of the research is devoted to hydraulic drives. The institute is internationally renowned for its pioneering work in Digital Fluid Power.

Engineering design is researched in close cooperation with the Institute of Mechatronic Design and Production.

A further important partner in research is the Linz Center of Mechatronics (LCM).
