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.

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.

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.

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.
