Do you need more hydraulic power?

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

The following was provided from our manufacturing partner, Scanwill, leading up to HANNOVER MESSE 2015

Scanwill-Fluid-PowerScanwill Fluid Power are proud to be exhibiting, for the third time, at the HANNOVER MESSE. Stand A10 in hall 21 will host live demonstrations of the Scanwill product range of energy saving hydraulic pressure solutions.

The founder of the company Mr. Jesper Will Iversen, will be present throughout the Trade Fair. Mr Iversen has 20 years of experience in the design and manufacture of unique, compact, high efficient pressure solutions for applications in industrial hydraulics.

Today the Scanwill pressure solutions are distributed through partners all over the world, like IC-Fluid Power, and are used every day by hydraulic engineers as a common solution to achieve greater hydraulic power. The Scanwill pressure solutions are installed in an expanding variety of hydraulic applications, in general industrial sectors where there is a need for increasing the hydraulic power.

Does your hydraulic application need a working pressure at 210 bar? 350 bar? 420 bar? Or even higher? – Then the Scanwill pressure components could be your economical and energy saving solution!

Pressure-Intensifier-MP-2000-XP-2bScanwill Fluid Power will, at the HANNOVER MESSE, launch the new series of MP-XP pressure solutions that are designed with an additional side outlet port, so that the oil from the high pressure side is returned directly to tank and thereby ensures that the intensifier and the cylinder are always supplied with cool and filtrated oil. The MP-XP series is ideal for small stand-alone hydraulic circuits systems, with a limited consumption of oil at short cycle times and also where there is a risk of collecting contaminants in the oil at quick couplings.

Pressure-Intensifier-MP-CT-1The second new product launch will be the MP-CT series of pressure solutions systems, which are designed for integration in a valve stacking system. The MP-CT has an external port from which high pressure is supplied – without disturbing the supply circuit. The benefit of MP-CT is that it allows, from the supplied low pressure, to get a pressure increase at specific selected application spots – for example clamping, engraving and pressing applications.

Sales & Marketing Manager Anders Levinsen commented “We look forward to meeting many of our dedicated Scanwill sales partners from all over world and especially to present our pressure solutions to hydraulic engineers, that are looking for both energy saving and safe product solutions for their hydraulic circuits. HANNOVER MESSE is, for Scanwill Fluid Power, the most important exhibition window to the hydraulic world – it is also where we meet all our valuable local German customers allowing us to expand our network within the hydraulic industry”.

Hannover-Messe

Hannover, Germany | April 13-17, 2015

Several of IC-Fluid Power’s European manufacturer partners will be attending HANNOVER MESSE, April 13-17, 2015, in Hannover, Germany.

HANNOVER MESSE is the world’s leading annual showcase for industrial technology. A broad range of forums, conferences and special events will offer attendees the opportunity to learn more about the key issues affecting the fluid power industry.

“Integrated Industry – Join the Network!” is the lead theme of the exhibition and addresses the challenges of the fourth industrial revolution such as achieving universal standards for machine-to-machine communication, maintaining data security and finding new business models.

We would like to wish our manufacturer partners listed below good luck at the show and encourage show attendees to stop by their booths to see what is new.

Representatives from IC-Fluid Power will also be working the booths above and walking the show.

Going to HANNOVER MESSE? We would love to meet with you. Contact IC-Fluid Power at 419.661.8811 to make an appointment.

Hydraulic Component Company Connects Customers across Globe

IC-Fluid Power 25 Year Anniversary Logo

IC-Fluid Power, a privately held specialty hydraulic sourcing firm, celebrates its 25th anniversary, marking a quarter century in northwest Ohio as the North American hub for sales and marketing for the industry. 

IC-Fluid Power was founded in 1989 by Armin Hunger and Jim Reed, who has since retired, to provide customers access to high-quality hydraulic technology, components and solutions. For the past 25 years, IC-Fluid Power has combined in-house technical expertise with long-standing relationships of The International Hydraulic Group, which consists of 15 German and other European hydraulic manufacturers, to deliver off-the-shelf and custom hydraulic systems and components to customers throughout North America. 

What started as a small operation in a garage with one part-time employee in Perrysburg, Ohio quickly grew to a more than 6,000-square-foot warehouse with a need for additional salespeople at its current location in Rossford. IC-Fluid Power was founded on Christian principles, seeking God first and treating others with love and respect, which are the bedrock of the company today. 

Mr. Hunger credits the success of the business to its willingness to assist American customers with connections to quality German products and develop strong personal relationships with all suppliers, a number of which have done business with IC-Fluid Power since the beginning. 

“We were present if our customers needed something and we did the dialogue between Germany and the U.S. customer so the U.S. customer didn’t have to go directly to Germany and he could talk to an American source and we would provide that service to him,” Mr. Hunger said. “I’m very happy we have survived 25 years. We had our ups and downs like every business, but our suppliers all stuck with us and had trust in our company.” 

During the last 25 years, IC-Fluid Power has been the connection between engineers, purchasing departments, and project managers across the globe for hydraulic components, saving clients time and resources. IC-Fluid Power has multi-language communications, a strong relationship with its European counterparts, and experienced freight brokers, which ensures hassle-free customs and on-time delivery. 

“For the last 25 years, IC-Fluid Power has introduced countless hydraulic innovations that have changed the industry,” said Bernd Hunger, IC-Fluid Power’s vice president. “Moving forward, we are focused on continuing to be the industry leader by bringing our customers the best hydraulic components from across the globe. I am incredibly excited about this journey and truly believe that the best is yet to come.” 

IC-Fluid Power serves clients in a wide range of industries including aerospace, agriculture, construction, energy, entertainment, food and beverage, forestry and lumber, machine tools, marine and offshore, material handling, metals, military, mining, packaging, plastics and injection molding, transportation, and waste management.    

As it looks to the future, the company plans to spend the next 25 years growing the business in a new 14,000-square-foot facility currently under construction in Northwood that will provide additional flexibility for IC-Fluid Power in a larger space.

IFPE 2014 – Compact Linear Actuator

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Read the transcript of the video below…

My name is Ben Hunger. I’m the vice president of IC-Fluid Power. We’re here at IFPE 2014 and IC-Fluid Power is celebrating 25 years this year. We’ve got a great booth and a lot of product [on display].

One of the features this year is this new compact linear actuator; a new German product with a built-in hydraulic power unit right on top of the cylinder that keeps things nice and compact.

All you have to do is run a power line and a data line and you can control the whole system. It is clean system since the air is removed out. Since there are no air compromises in the hydraulic oil, you don’t have to change the oil for long periods of time [up to 10 years].

There are options for built-in accumulators along with other customization. It can use a standard hydraulic cylinder or a custom-designed cylinder from any manufacturer.

One of the applications where this is used is strip mining where it’s difficult to run hydraulic lines all over the place. It’s much easier [safer and more economical] to run some electrical and data lines.

This new compact linear actuator is really good in rugged applications where you don’t need a lot frequency, things sit for a long time or distances [between the power unit and actuator] are really long.
