WANDFLUH Mobile

...designed to ensure high power density and robustness

High power density and reliability in all weather conditions have always been important requirements for the use in the mobile sector. In order to carry out heavy work with large machinery efficiently

and yet also precisely, hydraulics that are well-adapted to the machinery are required. Precise proportional technology with the corresponding electronics and software are the key to success here.

Focus

Components for the mobile sector meet a broad spectrum of requirements. In addition to being suitable for all weather conditions, they must have a high power density and show a high resistance against external influences. Depending on the requirements, explosion protection and/or corrosion protection executions of the valves are also available. The quality of the valves and electronics generally becomes apparent once they are used on a daily basis in mobile devices and machinery, where shocks, vibrations and sharp temperature fluctuations are a part of everyday operations. When developing valves and electronics for the mobile sector, the focus at Wandfluh is on these factors. In numerous projects, the specific layout of hydraulic components has lead to a significant increase of the reliability and availability of a mobile machine.

Applications
  • Brake systems and couplings
  • Port crane control
  • Construction machinery
  • Forestry machinery
  • Salt spreader vehicles
  • Fan drives
  • Machinery with lifting functions (forklift truck, lifting platform, etc.)
Control

For the specific requirements of the mobile sector, corresponding amplifier and controller electronics have been developed at Wandfluh. This technology stands out for its mechanical robustness and a high resistance against vibrations and moisture. The range also includes freely programmable mobile electronics (PME). This electronics has various sizes of displays as well as keypads to control the hydraulic circuit. In order to simplify the wiring on mobile machinery and devices, all mobile electronic components can be controlled via a bus system. The benefits are the low installation costs, and the system can be extended as desired.
