Hydraulic connection technology – The new design brings comprehensive added value

Technological factors such as performance, efficiency and functionality are decisive for the market success of machines and equipment. But thosewhosee innovation as a purely technical matter need to think more broadly. Machines are increasingly becoming “brand ambassadors” which visually express their “inner values” through sophisticated industrial design. For this reason, the supplier industry is called [...]

In the development phase the new connection design was first modeled in using a 3D CAD program and its resilience was tested virtually using the finite element method in the application.
