Danfoss Scotland – DDISPLACE

Digital Displacement Technology for Off-Highway Applications

Project Highlights 

  • Introducing a market-disrupting technology called ‘Digital Displacement’ – a re-invention of the hydraulic pump. 
  • Developing a family of modular products for off-highway OEM vehicle manufacturers, combining rugged mechanics with electronics and embedded software.  
  • Enables a highly efficient way to control the high-force multi-axis movements of heavy machinery. 
  • Energy losses are reduced dramatically as a result of the new efficient system architectures made possible, enabling energy to be recovered and re-used.  
  • Technology will be capable of reducing fuel consumption by 20% and 40%, depending on the application, with the potential for more than 50% when fully developed. 
  • The innovative products will principally be applied to off-highway vehicles such as excavators, wheel loaders and forklift trucks which make use of hydraulic systems for propulsion and for functions such as digging and lifting.  
  • The technology developed has the potential for application to mining, forestry and industrial applications. 
  • Total project value £21.7 million, with £10.8 million funded through the APC.
