With gesture control farewell to buttons
Gesture control system which is well known in game world was applied into industry. Gesture control system improve productivity and increases user-friendliness by replacing buttons which are hard to reach, slow to use and have unclear functionality. The potential market is huge as there are many viable applications in robotics, mechatronics, industrial vehicles, process...
Digital microhydraulics can save double the amount of oil used in Finland each year
In solenoid-actuated micro valve concept plurality of mass-produced digital on/off valves are used instead of one traditional valve. This increases industry competitiveness and smaller ecological footprint by cutting fuel use up to 50 % and enabling higher performance and reliability of machines and processes.
