Achieving carbon neutrality via electrification and carbon-free construction methods.
Electrification, whether through the implementation of battery power or the optimizing and lightening of heavy mobile platforms with electromechanical components like vehicle hydraulics, will play a major role in helping the construction and mining industry achieve their goal of a zero-emission future. This will include a reduction of ‘embodied’ carbon - the emissions generated during manufacturing, transportation, and construction in the industry – which contributes to around 11% of all global carbon emissions. Parker can help you integrate the best electric and hydraulic motion control to optimize today’s and tomorrow’s electrified machines to help reduce emissions. View our products at bauma that are designed to be a part of a safe and productive electrified system - from machine controls to electric motors and inverters to electro-hydraulic pumps – and discover why partnering with Parker provides access to smart electrification solutions that maximize system efficiency in both work and traction applications to enable a quieter, cleaner tomorrow.
Small and Powerful Motor Options
Parker provides some significant building blocks for continued smarter vehicle electrification in the construction and mining industry with its Global Vehicle Motor (GVM) Permanent Magnet (PMAC) motors for mobile systems and its Global Vehicle Inverter(GVI) mobile inverters for traction, electro-hydraulic pumps (EHP) and auxiliary systems from 24 to 650 VDC. Together, these high-power components help provide solutions for the next generation of low emission, battery, and fuel cell powered on- and off-road applications. The motor and inverter options exhibited at bauma are exceptionally efficient over a wide range of speed/torque operating points, with remarkable cooling efficiency. They provide high power density – thanks to a patented liquid cooling system - with a minimal footprint and low energy consumption. The GVM also features adapted winding for application speed range, while the Inverter has been specifically designed for functional safety and cyber security. Parker offers the OEM or vehicle designer a one-stop shop for eMotors, inverters, thermal management, connectors, and controls (excluding axles) and Parker’s ePropel Motor and Inverter offer best-in-class when it comes to power density and efficiency.
Electrified Work Functions
Parker can provide a highly efficient way of specifying the smartest combination of optimal Parker components to optimize system performance. This allows for easy commissioning of electromechanical, electronics, thermal management, and hydraulics work functions, as plug-and-play solutions. This optimization of smart component combinations reduces complexity and increases efficiency while improving the time to market and performance - all while meeting functional safety requirements.
Hydraulic Tank Optimization
With growing performance, safety, and efficiency demands, OEMs are seeking innovative design solutions that maximize performance and minimize the total ownership costs of their electrified mobile machinery. Hydraulic tank optimization saves space, improves controllability, and reduces costs to help solve these challenges. Parker’s hydraulic tank optimization program can reduce the size of the hydraulic reservoir by up to 30 percent. Not only does this reduce the amount of oil required to run the system (decreasing disposal costs and environmental impact), but it also reduces footprint and weight for greater fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions and increases battery installation capacity. Parker can provide all the components for solutions that optimize fluid deaeration for better controllability and safety, improve temperature dissipation and optimize filtration performance to increase the component lifetime, minimize servicing and maintenance costs and reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Our approach is to work closely with our partners, from concept to final design, to create a total system solution that meets their needs.
