Electrification is a real trend and is not anymore limited only to passenger cars. The big wave of electrification fuel by environmental regulation is impacting all industries. For component manufacturers and tier1s, it is crucial to recognize this trend and adapt their product offering accordingly. If we do not move fast and we do not innovate faster than competition, we will lose our market leadership position.
Hydraulic linear actuators are widely used. Their power to weight ratio and their price is by far the best compare to any other technology. However their efficiency remains low, their controllability is limited and they need high level of maintenance. We are looking for innovative electric actuator design (or EHA) to overcome some of the challenges of hydraulic actuators. Our target application is Boom, Arm and Bucker actuators for excavators:
Power range: 7 to 13 kW
Peak power: 15 to 20 kW
Continuous Torque: 60-65 Nm
The most innovative solution could be offered a pilot program and a joint development opportunity with the Nabtesco group
