OUR TECHNOLOGICAL FOCUS
Developments in hydraulics have long been characterized by interdisciplinary know-how. This is exactly where LCM is all about. Thanks to the knowledge of our experts from a wide range of disciplines, we solve even the most demanding hydraulic tasks – from the first concept to series maturity.
Industrial and mobile hydraulics
Continuous improvement of drive solutions in industrial and mobile hydraulics in terms of digitalisation, maintenance, costs, energy consumption and new fields of applications.
Digital hydraulics enables improved systems with respect to precision, energy requirements and costs. The outstanding positioning accuracy opens up complete new fields of application for hydraulics.
An integrated drive allows the advantages of hydraulics to be combined with the convenient “usability” of electric drives. Compared to classical hydraulic systems lower maintenance and operating costs, a reduction in size and a significant increase in energy efficiency can be achieved.
The “hybridization” of drives benefits from the use of regenerative and recuperative energy flows. The reduction of the overall energy consumption in combination with peak power covering allows a reduction of the primary drive power.
Drive and System Solutions
From drive systems and autonomous handling systems to safety systems in transportation ready for series production! The integration of the drive context into the overall system enables a fundamentally good (drive) solution for an overall mechatronic system including I4.0 readiness.
OUR SERVICE OFFER
Transfer of knowledge
Our technology experts pass on their knowledge and experience to you.
We conduct knowledge dialogues with you in the context of bilateral talks or group workshops. The spectrum ranges from brainstorming to the selection and evaluation of technologies for new products and processes
We renew and improve for you tried and tested.
The market calls for time-tested products to be optimized and equipped with new functionalities. Depending on your requirements and possibilities in your own company, we offer you to carry out the complete development from the idea to the finished prototype or the closely interlinked cooperation with your development department.
We develop for you from the idea to the finished prototype.
Especially in the event of resource bottlenecks in your own development team, or if you need knowledge of technology that is not “in stock” in the company, we offer you to carry out your development project from the idea to the prototype.
We create customized simulation models for you and carry out simulations for you.
Machines, systems and production processes are complex systems. Only the understanding of processes and causal relationships allows efficient new development and optimization. With many years of experience and know-how in the development of mechatronic systems, we create customized simulation models for you and carry out simulations for you.
We research and develop together with your development department.
In the search for new solution strategies, in the case of staff shortages or even if the development of competencies in our own development team is required, we offer you to perform partial tasks or work packages together with us.
