Goldacres G4V designed for horticulture with unique hydraulic drive system 

A SELF-propelled sprayer designed for the horticulture market has been released by Ballarat manufacturer Goldacres.
The new G4V is a lightweight sprayer with four-wheel steer, four-wheel drive and narrow tracks.

“The sprayer needed to be most efficient spraying at lower speed ranges with higher capacity hydraulics to operate a large spray pump for high flow rates,” said Goldacres’ Stephen Richards.

“The design team came up with a unique hydromechanical hydraulic drive system to form the basis of the ultimate horticultural self-propelled sprayer.”

While the G4V might look similar to its G3 and G4 stablemates, its drive design is different, with a unique hydraulic and mechanical driveline.

It uses a single high-capacity variable-displacement hydraulic pump combined with a hydraulic motor coupled to a full mechanical transfer case, differentials and drop axles.

“This provides smooth, infinite speed control with the added benefit of simplicity, reliability and unmatched power to the ground,” Mr Richards said.

The G4V has the 165hp QSB 4.5-litre Cummins engine powering the drive and hydraulics system, which uses a Danfoss transmission with a two-speed transfer case to feed the mechanical drive to the wheels.

“This unique hydromechanical drive system sets the G4V apart from the broadacre G3 and G4 models with their full mechanical drive systems,” Mr Richards said.

The sprayer also has inboard hydraulic brakes and a limited slip diff front and rear to keep wheel power balanced.

The unit features constant four-wheel drive with computer assisted four-wheel steering for a turning radius of just 2.9m.

Inside the cabin, the ISObus control brings all the systems together into a single display, which shows sprayer functions such as a pump speed readout, ultrasonic boom levelling plus sprayer steering and task control applications.

Hydraulic Demolition Machine And Breaker Market Growth, Forecast and Value Chain 2017-2027 

Hydraulic Demolition Machine and Breaker are the machines designed to knock down or break rigid structure. The hydraulic demolition machine and breaker have hydraulic system attached to the machine which provides perfect hydraulic flow through engine speed. Thus the system ensures hydraulic power need during the demolition and breaking process. A breaker is a powerful beating hammer fitted to an excavator for demolishing rocks or concrete structures. The breaker is powered with the help of auxiliary hydraulic system from the excavator and is operated by the foot-operated valve. Application of hydraulic demolition machine and breaker can be seen in the industry like construction and mining for demolishing or breaking of the large area.

Hydraulic Demolition Machine and Breaker is driven to its application where jackhammering and blasting is not possible due to environmental and most important safety issue. Hydraulic demolition machine and breaker outperforms in the construction industry and is a potential factor to the market growth. Owing to demolition which is said to be a key ingredient in progress for the deconstruction of bridges, building, and other tough and gritty structure, hydraulic demolition machine and breaker play a vital role in the situation where these machine provide the best output result.

Hydraulic demolition machine and breaker help to provide most power and torque, as the hydraulic fluid cannot compress like air it has the ability to work underwater, and will not freeze at low temperature are key drivers for the growth of hydraulic demolition machine and breaker market. Hydraulic demolition machine and breaker & tools used for mining such as underground coal mining purpose is another potential factor for the growth of the market owing to spark that triggers explosion is prevented as they lack any high-power electrical circuitry that can lead to an explosion.

Hybrid vs Traditional Hydraulic Actuator Systems 

Parker Hannifin is a Fortune 250 global leader in motion and control technologies with groups encompassing nearly 70 divisions worldwide, and serving the broadest array of industries including Aerospace, and Energy.   Bruce Besch is the Advanced Motion Systems Sales Manager with the Cylinder division, and has product development and support responsibilities for Electrical, Mechanical, and Hybrid products.

Parker created a Hydraulic Actuator Systems —what customer needs specifically drove to that design?
The need for “Plug and Play” functionality, was a key driver. Devices need to get smarter and be more efficient to survive in today’s economy. It was our goal to provide customers with an actuator that looks and feels like an Electric Actuator but has the power density and fail safe systems commonly found in traditional hydraulic systems. We are striving for simplicity, with 3 levels of operation, simple on/off control, commonly used in Solar Tracking, Speed and Direction Control for use in Valve actuation for the Hydro/Power Generation market, and lastly bus/network units that will simply plug into customer’s networks allowing our customer to talk to them and retrieve information about the actuator with simple 2 wire controls.

Tell us some of the main differences between a traditional electric or hydraulic actuator and the hybrid actuator and what you see as making the hybrid superior.
The primary reason that our design is superior, is that we take a “best of both worlds” approach, optimizing the best features of the two traditional technologies. With HAS we have combined the controllability of electromechanical actuators with the power density, longer life and resistive force capabilities of traditional hydraulic systems. The resulting hybrid offers robust, long-life tracking solutions for solar power and actuation systems for wind, hydro and other renewable energy systems, as well as fossil fuel applications. Here are side by side comparisons between traditional hydraulic and EM systems, versus our hybrid design:

Traditional hydraulic actuator systems take more of a centralized design approach, with a Power Unit with the electric motor, pump reservoir and related valving located remotely from the actuators. You need to run hoses or tubing to the actuator. Hydraulic reservoirs are typically large in size and open to breathe, as the actuators are moved, drawing oil from the reservoir when extending. Contaminates and moist air are sucked into the reservoir by default, the reservoir being a common entry point for contaminates. Moisture will condensate on the reservoir top, and rust will occur along with water mixing with the oil which increase the fluid Total Acid Number (TAN). As TAN increases, seal life degrades. The control is achieved by use of effective valving, and there are several at different points .

Cat unveils 3 20-ton Next Gen excavators: ‘Platform for the future’ boasts new hydraulic tech, remote start from phone app

How cool is this: An excavator that you can start with an app on your smart phone.

That’s just a tiny fraction of the digital razzle-dazzle Cat showed us last week in the most significant change to its excavator program in 25 years.

The changes will eventually roll into almost all Cat excavators, but the company chose to start this Next Generation program with its 20-ton excavator class, specifically the new models designated the 320GC, 320 and 323. Brian Stellbrink, market professional, global construction and infrastructure called this strategy, “The new platform for the future.” Plans are underway to apply the same redesign to the 36 ton excavators next year and the 30 ton excavators a year after that.

Cat is claiming up to 15-percent lower maintenance costs, 25-percent improvement in fuel efficiency and 45-percent improvement in productivity. But as with something so ambitious, there are a lot of details. So, pour another cup of coffee and let’s get to it.

Three versions
The strategy behind the launch is to offer a low spec version and two high tech versions of the same machine. The three machines include the 320 GC, the 320 and the 323.

The GC model is a no-frills excavator for the contractor who doesn’t need a production machine and wants the lowest operating cost per hour. This is the machine for contractors who don’t intend to put a lot of hours on the machine day in and day out, or don’t need digitally-guided or GPS automated digging controls—in other words a cost-effective solution for light or medium duty use.

The latter two machines offer 2D and 3D machine control and a number of features to bolster performance in production environments and high-load applications. But all three machines share some significant mechanical innovations.

Optimized Hydraulic Drives Power Oilfield Equipment Productivity 

For OEMs that design and build equipment or machinery, the hydraulic systems that drive the elements that lift, push, pull, drill or dig are often outsourced so as to maintain focus on their core competency—the rest of the system.

However, sourcing the ideal Hydraulic Drives Power can present several challenges. To ensure optimum performance, the hydraulic power unit (HPU) must be designed to meet the specific requirements of the application. Complicating matters, these systems often must fit within specific, unique dimensions to be contained in a specific enclosure, skid or trailer.

When this occurs, OEMs often turn to more vertically integrated custom manufacturers that can design and build such systems from the ground up. By doing so, the hydraulic system can be optimized to improve performance, efficiency, and long-term reliable service of OEM equipment in the field.

Outsourcing Hydraulic Systems

Hydraulic systems are largely comprised of standard components that include a prime mover (diesel engine or electric motor) along with pumps, valves, actuators, reservoirs, accumulators, filters, and other parts.

However, in the industry, there is delineation between those that manufacture —or perhaps more appropriately stated, assemble—such systems and vertically integrated fabricators that engineer and build the system from the main structural steel components through to the required controls.

In some cases, off-the-shelf or assembled systems are available from large component product distributors. With a heavy leaning towards incorporating the parts/products in their portfolio, these distributors often farm out the fabrication of the metal structures as well as other key sub-assemblies.

Although this may be sufficient for some applications, it eliminates some of the flexibility to adapt or fine tune the design. In some cases, component parts may be too large or not rated for the application, leading to premature failure.

A true, vertically integrated manufacturer, on the other hand, can fabricate from raw steel the main structure and with no predilection to specific brands and has the freedom to create hydraulic solutions that provide the perfect fit for the application.
