The intention of this series is to give mobile equipment designers ideas on how to design their vehicle to be more productive. The papers in the Electro Hydraulic Controls session include information on the design, application, and system analysis of Electro Hydraulic valves.
The papers in the Energy Saving Ideas for Mobile Equipment Designers session include information on two designs of Low Speed - Hi Torque motors, mining applications, a method of comparing control losses in various hydraulic systems, the introduction of a new series of hydrostatic transmissions, and a discussion of efficient hydraulic cylinder design.
The hydraulic cylinder paper is of particular interest because it is the first public discussion (that we know of) of hydraulic cylinder efficiency. The information presented gives a lot of "food for thought" on a new area of efficiency improvement.
