Dynamic simulation – effective use in day-to-day development

Simulation tools are widespread in everyday industrial development processes. However, they will only make a useful contribution to development tasks if used effectively. Hydrive combines a methodical approach and outstanding technical knowledge with skilled use of tools to provide its clients with customised simulation services that enable products to be developed quickly and effectively.

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.

Developing and commissioning a concrete paver

The concrete paver was taken into operation after being successfully developed and commissioned with considerable help from Hydrive. It has now been in use on various construction sites for over six months.

Innovative control valve for hydraulic plain bearings

Novel hydraulic plain bearings are not only characterised by their advantageous bearing design, but also by the energy efficient, stable control of lubricant flow. Hydrive Engineering has developed and tested a valve for this purpose.

Supporting development and identifying faults using targeted equipment measuring techniques

Analysing and optimising the drive functions of equipment and plants often poses many challenges. Dynamic equipment measuring techniques can bring significant advantages for experimental investigations.

Miniature axial piston pump

The effect of extreme ambient conditions on the pumping behaviour of a miniature axial piston pump operated underground were systematically analysed using dynamic simulation and checked in an experiment using a high-speed camera.

Additional traction drive for a construction machine

A hydrostatic additional traction drive which has to run synchronously with the traction drive of the machine under all operating conditions was developed from scratch for a grader.
