Hanover Trade Fair 2017: Parker links intelligent technologies and smart components into advanced IOT-system solutions

Hanover, Germany. 10. February 2017 – Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, will present a network of smart solutions at this year's Hanover Trade Fair. Parker’s technologies enable industrial companies to optimally utilise the enormous benefit potential-of digital networking. The company will also present components for smart IoT solutions from a single source that can be easily integrated into plant and machinery to provide a comprehensive technology- system solution made up of hydraulic, fluid connection technology, electromechanical and pneumatic components. The range forms a platform for process and productivity improvements.


Directly controlled proportional directional valve series for closed control circuits
Parker completes its offer of directly controlled proportional directional valves with the new zero-overlap pistons for its D1FC/D3FC series. With this option, valves can now also be used in closed control circuits. The highly dynamic directly-controlled valve series with high volume flows is positioned between the D1FB/D3FB series for mid performance applications and the DFplus-valves of the D1FP/D3FP series for maximum performance. The most important innovation of the D1FC in the rated size NG06 and the D3FC in the rated size NG10, is the path measuring system that – in contrast to comparable valves from other manufacturers – is completely integrated into the housing and reduces required installation space.


Push-Lok® low-pressure hoses with diverse use
The new Push-Lok® low-pressure hoses cover a broad application range and are even more strongly customised for their specific applications. In order to support various markets as a complete solution, the Push-Lok®-range comprises a total of nine hose types. Customers can choose between various hose constructions and materials to suit their applications. Six rubber hose types, two thermoplastic version and one hybrid hose (inner rubber layer with outer polyurethane layer) are available. To permit identification of various media, they are available in six different colours. Installation is very simple with assembly possible in seconds, saving valuable production time and costs.


Hose classification for simpler hose and fitting selection
Parker offers a new hose classification in the three quality levels "Good", "Better" and "Best" to address different market requirements – an essential key to success. The quality level "Good" is aligned with demanding smaller and medium-sized OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and Parker trading partners. It has been constructed strictly based on price-performance considerations, but nevertheless outperforms international standards. The quality level "Better" includes hydraulic hoses from popular brands Elite No-Skive in the middle pressure and Parkrimp® No-Skive in the high pressure areas. The hoses, which exceed their standards, are the preferred choice in the demanding MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) and OEM-markets. Parker's GlobalCore hose series meets the requirements of the highest quality category "Best". These state-of-the-art hoses exceed the requirements of ISO 18752. GlobalCore therefore offers outstanding technical and economic properties for the most demanding applications.


Sensor monitoring of oil aging and contamination
Parker's new FCS sensor to record the fluid condition monitors the critical oil parameters permittivity (dielectricity), water content, temperature, thickness, pressure and conductivity. It is the only sensor of its type that can measure conductivity in Nanosiemens per metre. The FCS-sensor determines when the oil must be treated due to deterioration of its chemistry (oil condition) or contamination by fluids such as water or foreign oil. As part of a proactive maintenance program, the FCS sensor contributes to reducing the overall operating costs of machines and to minimising downtimes and the number of inspections and lab examinations. The Parker FCS sensor is suitable for all mineral-oil based hydraulic liquids and lubrication oils.


Integrated drying and filter systems set new standards
The new integrated CDAS (Clean Dry Air System) and OFAS (Oil Free Air System) drying and filter systems by Parker Zander set new standards in terms of economic efficiency, performance, quality, function and service life. CDAS and OFAS meet the requirements to ISO 7183 and ISO 8573-1 for purity of compressed air. OFAS also corresponds to the purity class 0 for the total oil content – this applies both to oil-lubricated and oil-free compressors. This classification ensures optimal air quality at a fraction of the costs of an oil-free compressor even for critical applications.


Increased energy efficiency with Push-to-Fit drive solutions
Parker presents innovative push-to-fit drive solutions for pressing and joining applications: The electro-mechanical system for forming technology is an energy and cost-efficient solution for the production of high-quality vehicles, engines and gears, in particular in the automotive industry where push-to-fit can be used in all common joining processes. Many processes and applications can be implanted easily and quickly thanks to the product and system flexibility of Parker's push-to-fit system.


Parker will be present at Hanover Trade Fair 2017 with three stands: The main stand will be located in the MDA trade fair hall 23, stand A48. The Parker Hiross, Parker Zander and Parker domnick hunter brands will present innovations for compressed air and gas treatment at Parker's ComVac trade fair stand in hall 26, stand B78. Advanced sealing solutions are presented by Parker-Prädifa in hall 19/20.
