WALVOIL AT THE 'FLUID POWER AND ELECTRIFICATION EVENT: The hydraulic sector facing the challenge of the hybrid'

The Reggio Emilia Technopole and the Clust-ER MECH*, through the working group on Fluid Power, have organized a cycle of two seminars dedicated to the challenges, perspectives and projects that companies and research centers in Emilia Romagna Italian Region already have implemented or intend to develop in the coming years.

1st Appointment, March 4, 2021, 4.00 pm - The first meeting will focus on the evolution of hydraulic components in view of the challenge of electrification of on-road and off-road work machines. The seminar intends to highlight the strong innovative approach in the hydraulic sector towards increasingly electrified, green and connected solutions.
To keep up with the requirements imposed by new generation machines, the hydraulic world is aware that it has to increase efficiency through electrification and energy recovery, committing itself to increasing intelligence thanks to the opportunities offered by sensorization and electronic control.

Walvoil Spa and Ognibene Power will intervene with their projects and their vision on this strategic issue, supported by the world of research through CNR - STEMS.
