Mitch Eichler on Why Electrohydraulic Valves Control the Flow

Feb. 25, 2022
Along with the trade-up from purely mechanical to electrohydraulic components comes the expectation of higher levels of performance, accuracy and scalability.

Mitch Eichler, business development manager at Parker Hannifin, is a mechanical engineer with a passion for commercializing hydraulic valve applications designs. In this video he discusses why the combination of high power density, large force output and the ease with which one can actualize motion make hydraulic transmission stand out in industrial and mobile hydraulic machinery.

At Parker Hannifin’s motion systems group, technologies are considered to be complementary. “It’s not as much that you either go hydraulics, pneumatic or electromechanical anymore,” Eichler explained. “We look at them as a system solution. Our focus in our manufacturing division is hydraulic valves but, as electrification comes, those valves are getting smarter. In some applications, they may be going more electromechanical for their control or for certain components.”
