7th Technical Conference on Hybrids and Energy-efficient Powertrains for Mobile Work Machines

This technical conference has become an established forum covering hybrids and efficiency-boosting powertrain technologies.

The focus of this year’s event illuminates the industry’s mega theme: Powertrain technologies in the Industry 4.0 environment. This topic covers a number of key concepts: digitalization, networking and communication. They are the core of hybrid, energy-efficient powertrains for mobile work machines. Smart and connected systems, intelligence and energy efficiency are the catchwords in the world of hybridization.

In the field of mobile work machines, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies (FST) can play to its wide-ranging strengths in material development. Whether they are assigned to construction, mining, harvesting or transportation uses, work machines must be ready for extremely difficult work conditions: moisture, inclement weather, tremendous temperature fluctuations, and ultraviolet radiation, not to mention sand, mud and ozone. And then there are the system-related, technical factors that impede the operation of work machines or affect their service life, including corrosive oils and fuels. It is important to remember that schedules are tight in logistics and the construction, agriculture and forestry industries – and time is money. There is no room for error and downtime. In short, operating reliability and efficiency are in demand in mobile work machines.

Freudenberg’s experts look forward to your visit to Stand No. A3.
