Danfoss Power Solutions and RISE Robotics have signed a collaboration agreement to jointly validate and test an innovation they say has the potential to transform the heavy machinery market through electrification.
The two businesses have agreed to work together to validate the latest electromechanical actuator technology from RISE.
The RISE Cylinder (US Patent 11255416, patent pending: WO2019/014259) is a fluid-free, electromechanical alternative to hydraulic cylinders for heavy equipment and machinery. It helps address the battery-electrification challenges inherent in hydraulic systems by delivering hydraulic-like forces at unprecedented efficiency, precision, speed, and weight, according to the company.
“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,” said Danfoss Power Solutions president Eric Alström. “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.”
“We are delighted to collaborate with Danfoss,” said RISE Robotics CEO Arron Acosta. “Innovation isn’t for everyone, but at Danfoss, innovation is at the core of their DNA. Their speed of decision-making is electric. Their engineering and global manufacturing capabilities lead the way."
