Control system for a valveless wheel loader

Implementing energy-efficient drive technology in mobile machines reduces fuel consumption, cutting costs for users. To ensure acceptance, these new drive technologies must maintain the same standards of operability and machine performance that users are used to. This represents a huge challenge in terms of developing the control system, as in-depth understanding of machine behaviour and drive technology is required.

New lecture concept for mechatronics students

Hydrive Engineering GmbH supports teaching at the Dresden University of Technology’s Fluid Technology Institute. Didactic structure of the “Drive Engineering/Actuator Technology” lecture programme has now been reworked and tailored to the latest mechatronics syllabus.

3D Modelling of Hexapod Manipulators

Hydrive simulates Hexapod Manipulator to create a more mature prototyp and to minimize development time.

System optimisation of an active roll stabilisation

Hydrive Engineering develops simulation models that make coordinating and optimising active stabilisers in vehicles more effective.

Hydrive Engineering develops customised valve design

Certain applications increasingly require hydraulic control systems with special functions. A wide variety of functions coupled with a compact design is usually only achievable with individually designed valves. Hydrive Engineering develops, constructs and tests innovative valve constructions which meet your needs.

Bridge hydraulics

A detailed simulation model of a lowering brake valve was developed for the analysis of the oscillatory tendency of a hydraulic bridge drive.

State theatre Dresden

The main valve stages in the low pressure water hydraulic system, which operates the three lifting platforms in the substage and is about 100 years old, had to be replaced due to heavy abrasive wear. The newly developed main valve stage with a nominal size of 100 mm led to a considerable improvement in positioning behaviour.

Hydraulic Steering system for drilling equipment

Different variants of a miniature hydraulic drive for steering drilling equipment operated underground were designed, analysed and evaluated with the help of the dynamic simulation.

Adjustment for a piston pump

An innovative adjustment system for piston pumps for traction drive applications was tested and compared with the state of the art using dynamic simulation.

Plastic injection moulding machine

Alternative variants were tested and evaluated in the course of the development of an innovative drive concept for a plastic injection moulding machine based on rpm-regulated hydraulic pumps.

Hydrive Engineering widens expertise in valve development

With the appointment of Dr.-Ing. Dirk Wehner, the Hydrive Engineering GmbH team has now gained a further highly skilled development engineer. In the past, Dr Wehner has worked intensively on questions surrounding the virtual, simulation-based development of valves. This will help us to better support our clients with their development projects, providing everything from concept studies to technical analyses of vibration measurements.

Operating concept for a construction machine

A concept for an electro-hydraulic control was developed for the tools of a grader which considerably simplified the operation of the machine, as well as increasing its performance.
