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.

New modelling approach for evaluating shaft seals

Large ship drive shafts are sealed using special radial shaft seals, whose operating conditions are as complex as they are varied. Hydrive Engineering has conducted a project to develop a simulation model for shaft seals, in which it laid the foundations for a more precise way of simulating the dimensions of entire sealing systems.

System optimisation of an active roll stabilisation

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

Simulation models speeding up the development of shock absorbers

Hydraulic valve systems can help car manufacturers and suppliers to achieve complex vehicle functions, for example variable electric shock absorbers or active roll stabilisation system. However, such complex components have to pass functional and safety tests during the development phase.

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.
