Design and manufacture of a 20 ton hydraulic press, including electrical and controls. This project was carried out using the “turnkey project” model, including installation and activation.
The project included designing and manufacturing the power unit. The unit is responsible for operating four extraction cylinders for removing a plastic product out of the mold after pressing. The action requires maximal precision when it comes to the motion of the cylinders as well as movement at different speeds. This is a turnkey project, including electrical and controls.
Hydraulic power unit for plastic injection machine. The unit includes a servo motor and an internal gear pump. The above-mentioned combination allows for maximal energy economization while eliminating the need for oil within the system. It also decreases noise levels to a minimum. Designed and manufactured by Ballas Engineering and Automation LTD.
This apparatus, designed for testing pressure tubes, subjects tubes to high pressure at 1500 bar levels. The machine also contains an explosion chamber for pressure tubes at the pressure of 2500 bar. The apparatus is entirely automated without any involvement of the operator in the testing process, including automatic detection of defective tubes. The project was carried out using the “turnkey project” model, including manufacturing and activation.

Country: Israel – India. Field: steel industries. Client: classified. Central power unit for operating a machine for aligning and calibrating iron plates. Ballas Engineering designed and manufactured the central power unit controlling this machine.
Design and manufacture of a central power unit operating a number of end units, with an end unit placed next to each manufacturing press. The end unit operates the press and is powered by the central power unit. All parameters of the power units are controlled and monitored through the control panel and its built-in display.
“Fully Automatic” hydraulic elevators for two ships in the AGREXCO company’s merchant navy. The elevator transports goods down three stories under sea level inside the ship’s hold and up 3 stories above sea level. Thanks to the elevator, the loading and unloading of goods can be done with optimal speed and efficiency while saving on time and manpower.
