3D Printing Offers a New Way to Manufacture Hydraulic Manifolds with Greater Operational Performance
3D printing can be utilized for manufacturing hydraulic manifolds which are lighter, smaller and more functional than conventionally manufactured manifolds. A case study of re-designing a hydraulic manifold led to 72 % weight reduction compared to the original model. The solution reduces power loss and hydraulics noise in machines.
Compact energy efficient hydraulic drives for marine applications – tackling the environmental and performance requirements
Energy efficiency and compact design define some of the key requirements for modern day mobile and industrial applications. Digital hydraulics and pump controlled hydraulics introduce attractive alternatives for traditional low efficiency hydraulic systems and can be constructed with compact design. By taking into consideration the environmental factors of marine...
New tool set to support hydraulic system design and analyses
Hatch cover systems are usually tailored to some extended. This means that performance requirements for control system vary in projects. Combination of mechanical models and hydraulic system simulation tools improves system design accuracy compared to traditional methods while it also brings previously unavailable information of system behaviour visual in design phase.
