Resumen:
An innovative SME based in Germany has developed and manufactured pressure amplifiers integrated in hydraulic cylinders. Thanks to integration, high pressure remains only in the cylinder with no external high pressure components. The product allows downsizing of cylinder / system while keeping the same force or getting more force out of existing system. They are looking for manufacturers of hydraulic cylinders for joint market approach based on a commercial or technical cooperation agreement.

Pressure amplification technology for hydraulic cylinders
Summary:
An innovative SME based in Germany has developed and manufactured pressure amplifiers integrated in hydraulic cylinders. Thanks to integration, high pressure remains only in the cylinder with no external high pressure components. The product allows downsizing of cylinder / system while keeping the same force or getting more force out of existing system. They are looking for manufacturers of hydraulic cylinders for joint market approach based on a commercial or technical cooperation agreement.
Description:
The intense-innovative technology company with headquarters in Germany and an Engineering and Production facility in Slovakia is integrating pressure amplification in hydraulic cylinders. With around 20 employees and partners it develops and manufactures cartridge pressure amplifiers which are integrated into hydraulic cylinders to increase the hydraulic pressure in the cylinder. This can result into more force and speed from the existing system or smaller system with the same parameters. Potential applications can be found in various industries, where high force is required e.g. excavator attachments for demolition, industrial presses, handheld hydraulic cutting tools, specialized off highway machinery.
Since cartridge pressure amplifier works in the hydraulic cylinder, they seek partners - hydraulic cylinder manufacturers that will help explore potential market for the amplifier. This requires combined engineering activities and prototype testing of the product as well as identification of customers willing to consider value proposition of cylinder with integrated pressure amplifier in their markets. They would like to establish partnerships based on a commercial agreement or technical cooperation agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
Innovation lies in the integration of pressure amplification concept directly inside the piston rod of the hydraulic cylinder. Thanks to that, there are no high pressure hoses, pipes and any other system components mounted externally and the high pressure is safely contained within the hydraulic cylinder. The hydraulic connections of the cylinder with integrated pressure amplifier are on the piston rod eye. Typical output pressure from amplifier to the piston side of the cylinder is 700bar with input pressure max. 350bar and available amplification ratios from 2.0 to 2.8.
The value proposition depends on the application goals. Using high pressure can achieve either more force and speed from the existing system or smaller system with reduced cost but the same force.
