The Technology

From a low pressure system to a high pressure solution

High pressure system design normally requires extensive engineering and the use of high pressure components. Furthermore, the design must take rules and regulations into account. With PistonPower integrated high pressure solution confines the high pressure inside the cylinder and no high pressure installations are therefore needed.

1. Traditional corner point design

Traditional limit for design of hydraulic system and choice of power source.

2. New design point

Design for lower energy consumption with lower system pressure and reduced size of power source. Key functions reach 350 bar with cylinder integrated amplifier.

3. High Pressure design point

New limit for design with high pressure and increased cylinder force. Key functions reach up to 700 bar when high force is required and allows very high performance.

PistonPower enables you to design your system more conservative.

ForceShift™ technology

The high pressure on machine key functions is automatic and smoothly activated only when required, at high workload.

High flow from system pump available at normal work load.

Technology comparison:

1. Gear pump flow at normal workload 

2. Piston pump flow at normal workload 

3. PistonPower high pressure at high workload.

Differentiate a standardized cylinder and increase force

The PistonPower high pressure amplifier is integrated in the cylinder piston rod, with pressure on demand, full flow by-pass, and with embedded safety load holding and relief valves.

Easy to install and operate, achieve high pressure performance without changes in the hydraulic system

  • Easy to install, robust and innovative design
  • Increase pressure in the cylinder without changing hydraulic system design
  • No high pressure hoses or connections needed, high pressure is kept inside the cylinder
  • Activation and pressure relief valve are adjustable at cylinder assembly
  • Designed for cylinder lifetime – serviced along with the sealing
