Technology advancements on display at IFPE will focus on sustainability, automation and digitalization.
Collecting and analyzing data on component and system performance makes it easier to monitor when a part is starting to wear or fail so machine owners can be more proactive with their maintenance routines.
HydraForce recently partnered with Tan Delta and Elevāt to improve maintenance of hydraulic systems. Tan Delta’s oil conditioning sensor will be integrated into manifold assemblies equipped with HydraForce’s cartridge valves for continuous monitoring of hydraulic oil conditions. Information will then be analyzed within Elevāt’s telematics technology and sent to machine owner’s so they can take timely action on any potential maintenance needs.
Communication of maintenance needs from physical parts is possible due to the Internet of Things (IoT) which enables automatic alerts to be sent based on information collected by the sensors, software and processing built into a system.
