The Smarter Excavator: Burst of tech brings intelligent control to new mid-size models

Case D Series excavators feature the company’s Intelligent Hydraulic System with four integrated control systems working together to optimize performance. Andrew Dargatz, brand marketing manager, provides this overview of the feature: “The system actively manages and controls hydraulic power throughout the production cycle to maximize speed and efficiency while reducing fuel consumption by minimizing unnecessary hydraulic flow.” Playing supporting roles to the Intelligent Hydraulic System are a new electronically controlled pump, larger control valve and new sensors. Hardware improvements include a more robust boom and track and undercarriage design.

Four systems are involved in Intelligent Hydraulic Control. Boom Economy Control drops engine speed and uses gravity during boom down and swing. Auto Economy Control lowers engine rpm after controls are in a neutral state for 10 seconds and will do an auto shutdown, when enabled, after a preset idle period. Swing Relief Control regulates pump flow at the onset of the swing cycle. Spool Stroke Control monitors operator inputs and adjusts flow during dig cycles to optimize machine performance.

The sum of the parts is shorter cycle times, less rework, fewer overcorrections, greater precision for lift and placement, higher breakout forces and improvements in fuel economy of up to 14 percent.

Caterpillar has been getting a lot of attention for their new excavators, and rightfully so. When they introduced the 320 GC, 320 and 323 models last year, it had been 25 years since the last major redesign of the product – that would be 1992 – and they pulled out all the stops this time. Specifically, these three Next Generation models were built for digital connectivity, ease of use and semi-automated functionality.

Don’t Let the Wrong Hydraulic Fluid Slow You Down 

he efficiency of hydraulic power transmission is affected by flow and pressure losses within a machine. Flow losses, due to internal leakage through gaps in pumps, valves, and motors reduce the volume of fluid available to create machine motion. Pressure losses, due to mechanical and fluid friction, reduce the linear and rotary force available to lift or move the payload. The net effect is that volumetric losses decrease system efficiency while pressure losses increase energy consumption.

Putting Fluid Efficiency to the Test

Petro-Canada Lubricants teamed up with the Fluid Power Institute at Milwaukee School of Engineering to investigate how hydraulic fluids affect machine productivity and energy consumption. Milwaukee School of Engineering is a private university and home of the Fluid Power Institute, one of the leading academic fluid power research centers in North America.

In this study, a hydraulic dynamometer—consisting of a Danfoss Series 45 variable-displacement, axial-piston pump, and a Danfoss Series 90 fixed-displacement hydraulic motor—was used to evaluate fluid efficiency. This pump and motor combination is similar to a hydraulic system that might be found on the swing drive of an excavator, the propulsion system of a skid-steer loader, or the winch on a hydraulic crane.

Growth Prospects of Global Aircraft Hydraulic System Market During 2017 – 2025

Global Aircraft Hydraulic System Market: Introduction

Factors such as rise in global air travel and surge in new aircraft deliveries in countries such as China, Mexico, Brazil and India are estimated to be the key growth drivers in the global aircraft hydraulic system market.

Hydraulic systems have experienced a major transformation in terms of weight (they have become lighter over the years), simplification of inspection, ease of installation and maintenance requirements (latest hydraulic systems demand minimum maintenance). Hydraulic systems are not new to the aircraft market. In the past, aircrafts have used hydraulic brake systems. As the aircraft industry is evolving, manufacturers are coming up with newer systems. Hydraulic power systems were developed to meet the requirements of the modern-day aircraft industry.

Aircraft hydraulic systems enhance the efficiency of an aircraft’s components. Aircraft hydraulic systems facilitate easy operation of flaps, landing gear, brakes and flight control surfaces in aircrafts. The complexity of aircraft hydraulic systems depends on the size of the aircraft. For instance, smaller size aircrafts need hydraulic fluid only for wheel brakes. Larger size commercial aircrafts, on the other hand, require hydraulic systems that are complex and large in size. To achieve the essential consistency, an aircraft hydraulic system may consist of several subsystems. Each subsystem include actuators & filters, reservoir, pump, vane & spur gear, hydraulic fluid, pressure regulator, accumulator, valves and others (connectors).

Hydraulics and the Tangent Bender 

The Tangent Bender is a basic production machine designed to bend sheet metal and to form rounded corners in a single operation. This is accomplished by wrapping a ram-type rocker plate die around a radius forming die against which the stock to be formed is clamped. The power arm of the machine is a swinging wing assembly to which the rocker plate is attached by a rack and pinion. In the loading position the rocker plate is horizontal and acts as a female die directly or as a base platen for the die fixture.

A heavy spring on the outer half of the power arm is adjustable and fits against a bearing block supporting the pressure roll. The rear end of the power cylinder is anchored on a clevis mount against the rear base of the machine, the front end is similarly mounted on a projection of the bearing block housing at the approximate center of the power arm.

The Tangent Bender was first—and still is—widely used for forming shells of refrigerator cabinets. Other production uses include washing machines, electric stoves, space heaters, vending machines, tubular chair frames, camera and small-appliance bodies. When originally introduced, the machines were air-cylinder operated. These units did—and still do—credible work. However, they had some limitations that were troublesome on some classes of work.

Production Difficulties
The application of hydraulic power to the machine was the result of an effort to find a power source that would correct and compensate for the commonly encountered production difficulties. The first difficulty was the interruption in production due to uneven power flow. The second problem arose from the need for greater power to form heavier sheets. A third difficulty was due to the fact that variations in the thicknesses of commercial sheets required sorting and interruptions m production to adjust the machine.

On heavy-duty jobs, cylinders had a tendency to pause until the air pressure could build up sufficiently to overcome the resistance of the metal sheets. When pressure did build up, the cylinders jumped ahead, resulting in a wrinkling or “orange peel” effect on the finished work. These irregularities, when severe, caused rejection. The salvageable work required considerable hand finishing.

Volvo CE’s Fully-Electric Compact Excavator Prototype Wins Intermat Innovation Award 

Volvo Construction Equipment’s 100 percent electric compact excavator prototype — known as the EX2 — has won the prestigious Equipment & Machinery Award in the Earthmoving & Demolition category of the Intermat Innovation Awards. The concept machine, which delivers zero emissions, 10 times higher efficiency, 10 times lower noise levels and reduced total cost of ownership compared to its conventional counterparts, was recognized for its contribution towards progress in the construction industry. It is believed to be the world’s first fully-electric compact excavator prototype. At this stage, the EX2 is still part of a research project and it is not commercially available.

“I am extremely proud that the EX2 has been awarded this globally-recognized innovation award,” said Ahcène Nedjimi, electromobility specialist and EX2 project leader at Volvo CE.

“The EX2 is a revolutionary machine. The electrification of construction equipment will produce cleaner, quieter and more efficient machines — this represents the future of our industry. I’m pleased that the judges have recognized its significance.”

The Technology Behind the Concept

To make the EX2 prototype fully electric, the combustion engine has been replaced with two lithium ion batteries, totaling 38KWh, which store enough electric energy to operate the machine for eight hours in an intense application, such as digging compact ground. The hydraulic architecture also has been replaced with electric architecture, which incorporates electromechanical linear actuators that help to optimize the transmission chain. Removing the hydraulic system and the combustion engine, as well as reducing the cooling needs, has led to significantly lower noise levels.

“With its zero emissions and ten times lower noise levels, the EX2 could easily be used in densely populated areas without disturbing people — even at night,” said Ahcène. “Ten times higher machine efficiency, together with maintenance-free systems, means that operating costs and total cost of ownership would be significantly reduced.

“And because the EX2 is fully electrified and there are no mechanical joysticks, it can be controlled remotely from a mobile phone or tablet. This increases safety in hazardous working environments. Additionally, the EX2 delivers the same power and force as its conventional counterpart, as well as faster speeds in combined movements. As this type of movement is the most common kind for this machine, productivity is improved.

“All of this has been achieved without compromising on machine performance, ensuring customer needs would be fulfilled.”

Innovating for Progress

The Intermat 2018 Innovation Awards honor equipment, techniques, services, products and solutions that contribute towards progress in the construction and infrastructure industry. The jury, under the chairmanship of the president of the French National Federation of Public Works (FNTP), announced its decision at an award ceremony on Jan. 18 in Paris. The judging panel consisted of 13 industry specialists who selected the top nine submissions to receive awards out of a field of 90 entries from leading manufacturers.

“The EX2 forms part of Volvo CE’s long-term ambition of achieving sustainable transport solutions,” said Patrik Lundblad, senior vice president of Volvo CE’s Technology function. “This award is a tribute to the hard work and vision of Volvo CE’s employees, who continue to push the boundaries of technology and innovation and ensure the company is at the forefront of technological development. We are now looking forward to presenting the EX2 prototype at Intermat in April.”

Caterpillar Marine and Sanmar Shipyards have entered into a collaboration agreement to build a tug with an innovative hydraulic propulsion system furthering principle of a hybrid tug design.

Seldom a month passes where news related to alternative-fuelled or so-called green tugs is not reported here. Despite something of a hiatus which some suggest is related to a period of low conventional fuel prices it is clear this latest revolution, particularly with shiphandling and escort tugs continues to develop.

Owners are attracted by the various benefits associated with green tugs including increased fuel efficiencies and subsequent reductions in running costs, not to mention pressure to improve the environmental footprint of what by the nature of the job can be a somewhat ‘smokey’ activity. The bottom line of course is the cost of the investment or put another way the pay-back time and this alternative to the more normal hybrid arrangement involving electric motors and batteries presents an interesting development.

The new and patented Marine Advanced Variable Drive (AVD) harnesses Caterpillar’s experience with integrated power systems along with Sanmar’s expanding tug building business and involves a fully integrated hydro-mechanical propulsion system which it is claimed, provides ‘significant improvements’ in both fuel efficiency and vessel performance.

Caterpillar state that different from a typical power take-in solution, the AVD incorporates a planetary gear set allowing seamless clutch engagement of main engines, auxiliary engines, or both to provide a scalable power installation to meet operational needs in terms of maximum vessel speed, power, or bollard pull. This also allows propeller speed independent of engine speed with optimal engine efficiency leading to fuel savings of fifteen to twenty percent, essentially all the benefits of a variable speed diesel-electric propulsion system, Caterpillar claim at a fraction of the cost and size.

The AVD system’s flexibility can accommodate multiple configurations whereby auxiliary engines can be utilised to provide low load or transit operations extending the time between overhauls. Electric motors can be used instead of hydraulics if desired and diesel engines can be substituted by natural gas as the system provides superior vessel performance regardless of engine load acceptance. Main engines can also be downsized with supplemental power supplied via auxiliaries or generators if electric motors are used.

The vessel selected for the first Caterpillar AVD system will be a Robert Allan Ltd-designed RAmparts 2400SX tug. The machinery specification is unsurprisingly dominated by Caterpillar, centred on: two 3512 main engines, a C32 auxiliary and Cat MTA 627 fixed-pitch thrusters. The AVD system will include fully-integrated controls with customised operating modes and display panels in the wheelhouse. Compared to conventionally-powered examples with equivalent bollard pull (70t) the return on investment is estimated at three years or less based on projected fuel and operating cost savings.
