Reaching the ultimate solution

The applications team plays a pivotal role at ARGO-HYTOS as they develop customized solutions together with the customer. During those development phases everyone benefits from the extensive wealth of experience of a traditional family business with global reach.

There are usually several ways of solving a given problem. This is especially true in hydraulic technology. However, identifying the optimal components and how they work together most efficiently within a machine requires a lot of know-how and development time. Many customers use the experience, expertise and network of the Applications team (API) of ARGO-HYTOS, which consists of 40 experts spread across 18 countries. The team of engineers, technicians, designers and service specialists work hand in hand.

“In many projects, costs can be ‘designed out’ of an application” explains Wolfgang Rocca, Head of Applications Engineering International at ARGO-HYTOS. “We take on the demands of our customers and realize those with our components. Throughout the development phase, we discover alternative hydraulic approaches to bringing the solution to life. An improvement in performance and an increase in functionality are usually the result of our project work. This brings a market-specific competitive advantage to our customers, which is an additional goal that we focus on. Our customers see the experience and innovative strength of our API team as a great benefit when working with ARGO-HYTOS.“

Solutions are optimized on a daily basis across products and departments, particularly in the core areas of agricultural and construction machinery, special mobile machines, industrial technology and wind power. However, ARGO-HYTOS also proposes completely new approaches, which reflect the company culture: thinking out of the box.

STEP 2: WHAT DOES THE CUSTOMER REALLY NEED? Learn everything about the desired application and its specifics in close collaboration with the customer.

STEP 3: WHAT ARE THE APPLICATION OPTIONS? Develop optimized and alternative solutions and discuss them with the customer.

STEP 4: WHAT DOES THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION LOOK LIKE? Create design of the customized solution.

STEP 5: DOES EVERYTHING WORK IN PRACTICE? Test the prototype of the chosen solution.

STEP 6: HOW IS THE NEW SOLUTION PRODUCED? Prepare and execute serial production launch.
