Electrohydrostatic vs. Electromechanical: Which one is Best?

Abstract Fluid Background

There has been a recent shift away from traditional central hydraulic systems. Electrohydrostatic and electromechanical motion control have become the two popular alternatives for controlling motion. Each has advantages and disadvantages, making them more or less suitable for certain applications. In this article, we’ll look at the two types of motion control systems, and attempt […]

What Innovations Are Improving Energy Use in Automotive?

The automotive industry is at a crossroads, facing the challenge of sustainability. This shift stems from the pressing need to improve air quality by reducing emissions, minimise dependence on fossil fuels, and create a more sustainable future. The spotlight is on energy consumption as electric vehicles (EVs) demand extended ranges and internal-combustion-engine (ICE) vehicles strive […]

How the Replacement of Centralised Hydraulics in Aerospace Can Create Transformative Change

Aeroplane wing

Centralised hydraulic systems have long been the norm for control and actuation in aircraft. Critical flight control systems such as rudders, elevators, and ailerons rely on these heavy systems. Theoretically, some of the drawbacks associated with centralised hydraulics can be alleviated by moving to distributed hydraulic systems, however, this has proven difficult in practice. What […]

The Benefits of Switching From Mechanical to Electrical Feedback

Electrical Feedback

Electrohydraulic servo valves are widely used in hydraulic systems to control the position, speed, and force of hydraulic actuators. The technology hasn’t progressed much since the 1950s and there are key limitations that still exist. In this article, we look at some of the inefficiencies associated with feedback mechanisms in traditional servo valves, and how Domin is […]
