By Catrin Jones25 May 2022
Danfoss Power Solutions and Rise Robotics have announced that they have signed a collaboration agreement to jointly validate the latest electromechanical actuator technology.
The Rise Cylinder is a fluid-free, electromechanical alternative to hydraulic cylinders for heavy equipment and machinery. It is said to help address the battery-electrification challenges in hydraulic systems by delivering hydraulic-like forces with efficiency, precision, speed, and weight.
Danfoss Power Solutions President, Eric Alström, said, “It’s an exciting opportunity to work with Rise Robotics to accelerate the development of solutions that have the potential to create near-term, low-carbon options for our customers. We’re taking bold steps to battle climate change and help customers around the world decarbonize. Electrification is a critical enabler to the Green Transition, and we’re thrilled to be on this journey with Rise.”
