The objective of the VDMA specifications 24580 and 24581 is to support appliers of hydraulic and pneumatic systems in stationary machines to design machines which can be operated energy efficiently by taking into account functionality and economic efficiency.
The VDMA Specification 24577 describes besides the characteristics of the cylinder which is to be checked the testing conditions and the measuring procedure. Here it has to be distinguished between static friction and friction during a uniform test velocity.
The most important finding of the study is: "For mechanical engineering, the mobility transformation process offers opportunities for additional value creation," explained VDMA President Carl Martin Welcker on the occasion of the publication of core results of the study.
The Fluid Power Association of VDMA (the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association), with its Fluid Power Sealing Group is organizing the 20th ISC International Sealing Conference
on October 10 and 11, 2018, at the University of Stuttgart. The Conference will be held under the scientific auspices of Dr.-Ing. Frank Bauer, the new director of sealing technology at the Institute of Machine Components of the University of Stuttgart.
