HANNOVER MESSE 2020,
20 - 24 April
The research and development of diverse fluid power components is focus of the research group “Fluid Power Components”. From concept to prototype and functional testing, customized holistic approaches are offered to successfully conduct or accompany different kinds of component related studies.
In addition to the further development of existing conventional components, the implementation of smart units with embedded sensors is driven forward. The
range of research projects reaches from specialized components for aerospace and automotive applications, through construction, agricultural and forestry machinery, to stationary equipment, such as manufacturing machinery or renewable energy plants. Investigations are undertaken in the framework of basic
research, pre-competitive research, joint research and industrial projects.
The group considers upcoming challenges in component research and development from all relevant perspectives. This includes the analysis of customary components and the adaptation or optimization for specific use cases, as well as the development of corrective measures in case of damage. The methodology includes the application of analytical, experimental and numerical methods. By the use of these approaches, optimized and novel components can be developed.
Besides cost-effectiveness, modern fluid power drives are required to offer high efficiency and functionality, low noise, long service life and high robustness. Furthermore, environmental issues such as biodegradable supplies and the use of recyclable and non-toxic materials are increasingly gaining importance. Basing on these requirements, further development of components is advanced, constituting an important step in future-proofing fluid power drives and systems.
