High-performance range of mobile motors provides solution for low-voltage electro-hydraulic pumps

05 December, 2023

Parker Hannifin, has unveiled its latest addition to its high-performance range of mobile motors: the low-voltage NX8xHM series. Providing a cost-effective solution for both on and off-road vehicles, the new permanent magnet AC (PMAC) motor is an ideal choice for electro-hydraulic pumps used by 48Vdc construction vehicles, such as mini excavators. The motors are also suitable for on-highway truck steering applications and auxiliaries.

Hydraulics in automation: Enhancing warehouse operations

09 November, 2023

Hydraulic systems are an integral part of automation in various industries, including warehouse operations. In a warehouse setting, where efficiency, reliability, and precision are paramount, hydraulics can play a crucial role in certain applications. H&P explores the role of integrating hydraulics in warehouse automation and their benefits.

Industrial trucks: Sustainability and full automation are the future of intralogistics

16 October, 2023

The industrial trucks sector is suited for future concepts such as sustainability and digitalisation or full automation like few others explains WEBER-HYDRAULIK who has redesigned the material handling section of its website with a particular focus on steering systems, stabilisation modules and hydraulic controls as well as power units

COTS solution helps aerospace engineers rapidly optimise missile fin actuation system

03 October, 2023

Precise missile fin control can be the difference between hitting or missing the target. Fin actuation depends on a motion solution with reliable, high dynamic control, in a power-dense package. A customisable off-the-shelf (COTS) strategy can help achieve this outcome, minimising development time while meeting the essential operational criteria.

Reducing marine equipment downtime with predictive maintenance

05 September, 2023

Reducing downtime owing to machine faults and breakdowns is important for all industries, but with marine equipment typically being in a remote location, how do we react when problems occur? Andrew Powles Managing Director at FPE Seals explains further

Service ensures reliable compressor systems for marine vessels

31 August, 2023

Burckhardt Compression, the compression solutions company, recently provided a full range of compressor and auxiliary services for four marine vessels that were undergoing their five-year service at a dry dock in Korea. All four vessels were under a long-term service agreement (LTSA) with Burckhardt Compression, which made it possible for the scope and expected spare parts to be prepared well ahead of time. The service was completed within three and a half months, despite the challenges  of hot and rainy weather as well as a confined work area with simultaneous work ongoing by different teams.

New coil technology for solenoid valves can increase energy efficiency by up to 80%

06 July, 2023

Kick and Drop valve coils from Bürkert are saving significant costs by reducing energy use and extending service life according to the manufacturer. The increased efficiency also optimises environmental sustainability. With a low maximum operating temperature, the coils are said to enhance safety and remove the potential of electrical overheating. The 3-in-1 design, covering various voltage inputs, and also streamlines inventory management. H&P takes a closer look.

Sustainable actuation solutions with zero emission electro-hydraulic package

22 June, 2023

Automation Technology, Inc. (ATI), a leading provider of customised and comprehensive valve automation solutions, has launched its Zero Emission Electro-Hydraulic actuator solution to eliminate the carbon footprint of pipeline operations.

Advancing asset monitoring and diagnostics with new sensor launch

12 June, 2023

Monitoring the condition of large industrial equipment fleets is challenging and, without the necessary insights, it can be hard to understand the health and performance of assets. To help operators overcome this challenge, industrial digital solutions provider WEG has launched its new WEGscan sensor. By integrating WEGscan into their fleet, operators can monitor a wide range of equipment, including reducers, gear motors and compressors, helping operators reduce costs and improve predictive maintenance.

Solution for compact equipment that delivers more flow while consuming less power

23 May, 2023

Danfoss Power Solutions has launched its SLP13 two-way two-position poppet-type solenoid valve, a low-power, low-pressure-drop solution for compact equipment. The SLP13 cartridge valve features patent-pending technology that significantly reduces power consumption while increasing flow rating, which can help original equipment manufacturers meet efficiency targets and reduce manifold size and cost.

Solenoid valves protect tank pressures in critical aerospace

17 May, 2023

In the aerospace and aviation industries pneumatic systems are typically used to control the flows of fuel and other essential fluids for; propulsion, thrust, lubrication, isolation, purge and other fluid control applications. These pneumatic systems are usually supplied by a tank of compressed gas and one of the main challenges of this design is to eliminate the possibility of any leakage (or excess flow) from the tank. Should this occur it’s likely the issues would be either shorter system life, or the need to specify a larger tank. In these situations, a solenoid valve which offers the key benefits of zero leakage along with a wide operating pressure range, can be an effective ‘barrier’ between the tank and the system. However, engineers will also have to consider other factors which will have a direct impact on the performance of the solenoid valve. For example, various combinations of operating temperatures, material compatibility, power limitations and expected life cycle all addup to the complexity of system requirements.
