Parker Hannifin showcases its latest mobile solutions

May 2019 News

Parker Hannifin presented its new, integrated electrified system solutions for sustainable mobile systems at bauma 2019. Visitors to Parker’s stand were able to see and experience a range of efficient and environmentally-friendly innovations. The company’s Future Lab hosted the launch of Electrification Solutions with integrated electrified systems on display, including EcoReach, Steer-by-Wire and the new Global Vehicle Motor (GVM310).

EcoReach

EcoReach is a highly-engineered system combining a number of state-of-the-art core Parker technologies. These include a PMAC motor that improves load handling and reduces energy consumption, a reversible pump that converts shaft power into hydraulic power and runs as a motor driving the electric motor as a generator, and an optimised valve system featuring a combination of different elements designed specifically for forklift applications. EcoReach also features an integrated hydraulic unit with the motor, pump and hydraulic valves all incorporated into a single housing, which minimises the number of components, enhancing reliability and reducing installation size.

The result is an integrated hydraulic system that delivers improvements in performance and efficiency while simplifying build procedures and reducing costs for forklift OEMs. The system gives increased battery life, productivity, load handling capabilities and operational speed, plus a significant reduction in energy consumption.

Steer-by-wire

In the long term, self-driving machines are an industry goal, but in the near-term, steer-by-wire is the clear trend. Steer-by-wire removes the need for heavy, complex steering columns. Parker’s new SBW110 proportional, load sensing, pre-compensated mobile valve optimises steer-by-wire systems deployed on mobile machinery. This means easier installation and reduced noise levels for the driver, making the cab a safer, more ergonomic place to work. By simply using a pump oil supply, tank connection and electric signal, the flow from the SBW110 valve work ports is able to control the steering function. The valve is characterised by class-leading performance for robustness, control precision and energy efficiency.

Global vehicle motor

With the introduction of its new GVM310 size, Parker offers an optimised traction solution to meet the high-performance demands of on-road commercial and off-road electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). The GVM310 complements the electrification of hydraulic work functions already possible through the use of the GVM210 in combination with Parker’s hydraulic pumps. The outstanding power density and high efficiency of Parker permanent magnet AC motors, combined with a matched global vehicle inverter, reduces development risk, improves time to market and ensures compatibility and maximum efficiency. GVI mobile inverters are available in a wide range of low voltage variants as well as high voltage models.

For more productivity in diverse industrial applications, machines and processes, Parker offers valves, pumps, filters, gaskets, hoses, controllers, motors, drives and controls, and other related components and accessories. Parker’s technologies, products which can be combined into integrated systems, offer customers tailor-made solutions from a single source.
