10 Pitfalls To Avoid When Designing Electro-Hydraulic Machines pt. 1

Posted by David Price on Thu, Jan 12, 2012 @ 09:01 AM

I like to tell people that I prefer to learn from someone else’s experience rather than my own because it tends to hurt a lot less. In keeping with that, here are some things I’ve experienced with electro-hydraulics and some simple, easy solutions that will help you take some of the legwork out of developing an EH system.

1. Flashing an ECU on a Machine That’s Running . . .

Conexpo / IFPE HydraForce Post Show Wrap-up

Posted by David Price on Fri, Apr 01, 2011 @ 15:04 PM

Along with showcasing new products, visiting with customers and distributors, and meeting with many potential new customers, ConExpo/IFPE is a time to benchmark how well we are aging.  I enjoyed catching up with friends and former colleagues that I have not seen since 2008 and I hope they think that I am aging gracefully.  Judging from the feedback we received at the booth, HydraForce is aging extremely well.

As Lisa pointed out in a previous post, we skipped the gimmicks this year and went back to the basics, our broad product offering.  That appears to have been the right decision because the show was a great success for HydraForce.  The number of visitors to our boothand their optimism about the future were refreshing.  We were mentioned as a ‘company to watch’ in several pre-show news posts, our new products generated a lot of interest and we received many compliments on the design of our booth, which seemed to work very well for our purposes.
