Electrohydraulics is evolving

Hydraulic systems in construction, mining and material handling equipment have evolved from a normal system with low pressure to much higher pressure, which has increased the efficiency of the equipment. Along with this development, it is imperative that the hydraulic components are also up to the mark. Hydraulic motors and valves play a major role in the smooth functioning of a hydraulic system. Motors and control valves are essential components of any hydraulically operated machine as they are instrumental in creating the required motion.

Technology drives innovation, which in turn leads to the development of new products and solutions to meet the ever-changing requirements across the industry. Be it for increasing productivity, improving economy and fuel efficiency, achieving better operational efficiency and being environment-friendly, major players in this segment have come out with new products and solutions to their customers. In our Special Focus on Hydraulic Motors and Valves, industry leaders discuss the developments and latest technology trends happening in the industry with a few examples of the new products and solutions being developed in the recent past.

Power and performance are the two important parameters in any of the applications. At the same time, the customer looks for more production with high quality and increased reliability. For processes to be at their most productive, the control of speed and torque in relation to the process is essential. In line with this, leading industry players like Bosch Rexroth and Eaton have introduced a new range of intelligent solutions to satisfy the ever-growing customer demands. For cost-effective and environment-friendly solutions, these players are focusing on hydraulic solutions that are smarter, more flexible and more capable. Use of electrohydraulics is emerging as a preferred solution towards meeting emission norms effectively.

Research analysts predict that the global hydraulic equipment market will grow steadily at a CAGR of close to 5 per cent until 2020. The growth in construction and mining activities in developing countries has contributed to the growing demand for hydraulic equipment. The growth of infrastructure projects and their execution at a greater rate will fuel the growth of hydraulic systems, which in turn will drive the growth of hydraulic motors and valves further.
