Laminated metal designed to reduce vibrations and noise transmission in metal constructions, internal combustion engines, vehicle bodies, washing machines and office machines, dB Engineering’s Noiseless Metal consists of two sheets of metal bonded together by a thin viscoelastic damping layer.
Enerpac’s SPMT600 Series Self-Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT) is a three-axle per trailer modular system featuring a minimized height, slim design and remote wireless control operation capabilities, making it highly suitable for operating in confined spaces.
Designed to meet the future needs of global markets, the 13.6-L engine from John Deere Power Systems offers customers increased efficiency, installation flexibility and power in a more compact package.
Workhorse has released the W-15 E-REV pickup truck dedicated to the light-duty fleet truck market. To meet customers needs nationwide, Workhorse partnered with Ryder System for distribution and service.
Federal-Mogul Powertrain’s (Southfield, MI) new process for ranking the corrosion resistance of diesel cylinder liner materials will enable it to supply even more durable components for the most challenging applications.
The newly redesigned 2-pole DEUTSCH connector (MDC06-2S) from Murrelektronik, Inc. is an extremely compact connector—18 mm (0.71 in) long when plugged in—making it easier than ever to make connections, even in confined spaces.
The off-highway sector includes many niche markets, for which diesel power historically has been the preferred choice—but a combination of factors is leading some to switch to natural gas-fueled engines, requiring spark ignition, notes Federal-Mogul Powertrain's CTO, Gian Maria Olivetti.
Connectivity in regard to hydraulic systems involves the utilization of “smart” components, which communicate with one another on a common system. The commonality of being connected—from using Wi-Fi, cellular or satellite connection wherever we go to syncing all our devices—is an expectation in the off-highway equipment industry, says Danfoss' Henrik V. Joergensen.
OEMs can’t wait until the end of the process to think about how the machine and engine will be supported in the field. For attentive suppliers, that means innovations in modern diesel engines cannot be restricted just to combustion and emissions technologies any longer, says Perkins' Oliver Lythgoe.
