Enhancing reliability and productivity in harsh conditions.
Harsh operating conditions and construction and mining often go hand-in-hand. Designing and developing applications and machinery that can cope with these conditions and thrive in them is a technological challenge. Parker has been at the forefront of motion and control engineering for over 100 years and has the in-house expertise and range of products and components to help achieve this. At bauma, we will be exhibiting a variety of systems and components, from central tire inflation systems to helical hydraulic actuators and space-saving, high flow, pre-compensated valves to linear actuators and cylinders. We will also be focusing on automation and electrification and demonstrating how they can help achieve three key targets of the industry: environmental responsibility, sustainability, and improved worker safety. Increased automation allows the industry to replace workers with machines in especially dangerous environments such as deep-sea mining and is a growing trend, while the electrification of mining vehicles - to replace those with diesel engines - is reducing emissions and creating safer work environments.

High-Pressure Hydraulic Connections
Construction and mining hydraulic systems have to operate in some of the harshest and most demanding conditions on the planet so the need for reliable and corrosion-resistant high-pressure solutions is paramount. Parker's complementary connector system is designed to endure the toughest conditions hydraulic applications may face and contains safe, corrosion-resistant, easily maintained components that meet or exceed industry standards. The range of fittings features ToughShield™ Plus, Parker’s new standard zinc-nickel plating for steel tube fittings, which provides significant improvement in corrosion resistance. The SCFF and FEM quick coupling ranges offer the best flow and burst values in demanding applications while our high-quality high and medium-pressure hose fittings offer strong and reliable connections.
Hydraulics have always provided - and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future - the ‘grunt’ required to carry out the often difficult and heavy lifting and shifting tasks that play such a big part in the construction and mining industries. With the ever-increasing focus on sustainability, productivity, and profitability becoming prevalent in the sector, the optimization and smart electrification of platform systems like hydraulics have never been as important as now. Engineered for high-power density
Applications, Parker’s Electro-Hydraulic Linear and Rotary Actuators (EHA) are fully self-contained DC motor-driven actuators that provide both centralized and localized power and control. They have been designed to meet current and future challenges in the mobile market and are available as 12-volt or 24-volt motor options, so you can match the power supply to your application’s demand for a flexible, cost-effective solution. Parker’s Rotary actuators can meet the future demand for high pressure, high speed, and high torque capabilities with the Helac Rotary actuator being the most compact solution on the market. Parker‘s Linear actuators offer a built-in function together with a highly reliable design.
All Parker’s compact actuators meet the demands of power density and localized power source and provide the user with the controllability, accuracy, and reliability they need. The newest generation of variable hydraulic motors also provides significant fuel savings.
