Read in our latest Success Story, how ARGO-HYTOS improved the customer's existing system in a very short time and reduced the installed components and system costs.
Suction filter with hose connection up to DN 60
A renowned manufacturer of telescopic handlers was faced with the challenge of finding a more economical suction filter for a tank system already in use. The suction filter used so far was not easy to install and too expensive.
Read in our latest success story how ARGO-HYTOS made use of its decades of experience in the field of mobile hydraulics and was able to develop a robust suction filter for pump protection in hydraulic and lubrication systems by applying the latest production techniques in the field of plastics technology.
The monitoring solution for gears in the mining sector
Drive gears in the mining sector are exposed to extreme loads, which can lead to high wear in the gearbox and, in the worst case, to failure. To increase the reliability of the gearboxes and to detect damage at an early stage, ARGO-HYTOS has developed the OPCom FerroS wear sensor.
Read here how it helps to monitor the gearbox in real-time and prevents sudden production downtimes by early warning.
Ultimate solution to applications where the flow direction changes
With the modernization and multi-functionality of hydraulic systems, it is common for a jack-up barge, for example, to have more than 30 closed hydraulic sub-circuits with flow rates of up to several hundred liters per minute, in which the flow direction is constantly changing.
Read our latest success story to learn how ARGO-HYTOS bi-directional high pressure filter assemblies allow hydraulic fluids to flow in both directions while maintaining the highest standard of filtration efficiency.
High-pressure safety filter series HD 040/081/150
Since the operating time of high tech harvesters is very limited due to the annual harvesting window, it is essential to ensure maximum machine availability in this respect.
Read here how ARGO-HYTOS optimized the customers filter system used as wear protection in the hydraulic system to provide increased functional protection on the basis of an optimum cost-benefit ratio.
Digitalization in Mass Production: Online Condition Monitoring
For factories engaged in mass production one of the most important goal is to ensure that the production process is not interrupted at any times.
