  • Hydraulic hybrids boost fuel economy
    that the technology has the potential to save more than 1,000 gallons/yr for each urban-delivery vehicle. It is now being road-tested in Cleveland and Detroit. The design is called a series hydraulic hybrid truck. In it, a high-efficiency diesel engine combines with a hydraulicpropulsion system
  • Electromagnetic Brakes Let Hospital Rooms Go Ergonomic
    to the patient's head. Ceiling- mounted systems provide additional flexibility, but can require expensive structural reinforcements to the building and leave patients with the uncomfortable image of a mechanical arm hanging over them. The hydraulic or pneumatic brakes used to hold ceiling-mounted systems in place
  • It's the drivers who are unsafe at any speed
    A buddy of mine once let me take his vintage 1965 Corvair out for a spin. Everything went great until I pulled up to the first stop sign. It was only then I recalled that most cars of that era, including the Corvair, had brakes that were strictly mechanical no hydraulic assist. Touching the brake
  • No more "girlie man " gears
    to a minimum. In automotive electrical systems, they replace hydraulic and cable assemblies in interior and exterior mechanisms. These systems rely on plastic gears to quiet and smooth lift-gate operation and give stealthy movements to tracking headlights, windows, and underhood throttle body controls
  • 2003 Ford Expedition - A Nimble Giant
    result is a frame with a 70% improvement in torsional rigidity and 67% more bending stiffness. Even the engine is attached with hydraulic mounts to absorb powertrain vibrations. Air springs on the rear suspension will be available in later models. The new independent-rear suspension reduces unsprung
    and is drawn from a central system/silo and is shot in a short stroke using a direct-acting hydraulic ram. This is said to eliminate the double-platen deflection common to machines that build tonnage through tie rods. The ram's maximum travel is 1.37 in. The Maxima also has a dry-cycle time of 8.1 sec
