Electro-Hydraulic Hybrids Hit the Market


Olsen Actuation has launched an innovative Electro-Hydraulic rotary solution to the UK market.

Olsen Actuation has launched an innovative Electro-Hydraulic rotary solution to the UK market.

The Electro-Hydrostatic Drive, by German company Böhner-EH GmbH, combines the adaptability, efficiency and programmability of an electric actuator with the massive force capabilities of a hydraulic cylinder, in a compact design that promises to revolutionise industrial processes.

Due to its sealed for life capsule design, the EH-D boasts an impressive 20,000,000 cycle lifetime capability and with no pipes, cooling or wearing parts, the risk of leakage is eliminated (making the electro-hydraulic the perfect upgrade from messy and outdated hydraulic systems).

Despite its impressive 50MN force capability (up to 500 tonnes and competitive from 3 tonnes), the EH-D is highly efficient, saving up to 10 times more energy than traditional hydraulics and requiring almost no maintenance, this solution is designed to increase productivity by dramatically reducing downtime.

The EH-D’s Servo control drive software offers easy ‘plug and play’ integration while the actuator’s built in force measurement capabilities provide precise condition monitoring of energy, temperature, position and force.

EH-D Design Engineer Markus Germander said:

“The EH-D is a new type of Actuator developed completely from scratch to meet a wider range of applications. All drives are assembled using a sophisticated modular system. Electro-Hydrostatic Drives represent a disruptive and scalable technology for use from hand tools and mobile equipment right up to very large machines… EH-D actuators are proven in many industrial applications.”
