Mobile technologies for the future: Eaton presents solutions for the harshest of environments at bauma 2013
MUNICH, Germany … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton will use bauma 2013 to showcase its latest construction and mining technology specifically designed for severe-duty applications. As the mobile industry seeks to make productivity gains and optimize machines for uptime and operator comfort, bauma attendees will find matching Eaton solutions at stand B4.211A. The stand will feature Eaton's hydraulic products and filtration products from the InternormenTM product line - including its extensive industrial and hydraulic hose portfolio, which has become even more comprehensive since Eaton acquired Polimer/SEL.
Visitors to the Eaton stand will also see complete and reliable system solutions for excavators, wheel loaders and drill rigs. These solutions are designed to support higher productivity, operational cost savings, increase equipment uptime and energy efficiency.
"As companies operate equipment under tough conditions, they expect components and solutions that last and perform - anywhere in the world," said Astrid Mozes, president of Eaton's Hydraulics Group in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. "We design our products to match the demands of our customer's operating environments. With our solutions, they can optimize machine performance and improve maintenance and service costs. Our extensive global presence and distribution network gives customers access where they do business, helping them achieve their goals faster and more reliably."
Serviceability highlights: Guardian Seal and LifeSense
Among bauma highlights are Eaton's LifeSense®, a breakthrough technology for real-time, condition-based, hydraulic hose monitoring, and Guardian Seal™, a new nickel-free plating technology dramatically improving corrosion protection.
Eaton is pleased to introduce its new corrosion resistant Guardian Seal™ plating technology on carbon steel WalterscheidTM tube fittings. With Guardian Seal™, WalterscheidTM tube fittings meet the need for higher corrosion protection that is required in the most challenging environments. Guardian Seal™ has been proven to prevent white corrosion to a minimum of 240 hours and red corrosion to a minimum of 720 hours. As a result, Guardian Seal™ allows WalterscheidTM tube fittings to exceed the SAE corrosion resistance requirements of 96 hours to red corrosion and meet the more stringent European VDMA 24576-K5 requirements of 720 hours to red corrosion.
LifeSense® technology is a patented hydraulic hose condition monitoring and notification system that monitors the health of hydraulic hose assemblies in real time. It detects internal fatigue, as well as external damage, and provides advanced notification if the hose is approaching the end of its useful life.
