DEVELOPMENT of hydraulic systems for the transmission of motion, force or power may he considered to have begun with the introduction of the hydraulic press, one of the great inventions that marked the Industrial Revolution during the latter half of the 18th Century. (It was patented in 1795 by the Yorkshireman, Joseph Bramah, renowned in his day for many innovations, including the beer‐engine). For many years after its introduction the hydraulic press represented industrial hydraulics.
