In the hydraulic servo-cylinders design, the circumferential grooves are used in order to reduce the effect of the locking force. This force arises as a consequence to the distribution of pressure around the piston, when both an eccentric position, caused by the load on the piston, and the manufacturing defects on the piston and cylinder […]Read more

Startups, innovative companies and entrepreneurs met with CNA on June 28, at the Loris Malaguzzi International Center in Reggio Emilia. During the morning, the 19 selected startups from all over Emilia-Romagna presented their business ideas to a pool […]Read more
Hydraulic manifolds are used to realize compact circuit layouts, but may introduce a high pressure drop in the system. In fact, their design is optimized more for achieving minimum size and weight than for reducing pressure losses. This work studies the pressure losses in hydraulic manifolds using different methods: Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) analysis, semi-empirical […]Read more
