Hannover 2019: Partnering with Customers to Increase Productivity and Profitability through Engineering Innovation

Want to know how we partnered with customers to increase productivity and profitability through engineering innovation?

Hannover__stand_2019_parkerThe Parker Hannifin stand experienced a busy and successful week at Hannover Messe 2019. Parker presented system solutions, components and services to increase productivity and drive competitive industrial production at this year’s Hannover Messe.




"The visitors to the Parker stand recognized the distributor areas as an extension of the original Parker offer. The customers left our stand with a better understanding of Parker's entire product and service offering,"

Jörg Sturm, distribution manager for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland


Partnering with customers

To highlight Parker’s partnership with distributors, six distributors from Germany joined Parker in the IAMD booth as sub-exhibitors. Gustav Schmidt, KAINDL Technischer Industriebedarf, Kohler, Otto Glas, PHILIPP and DELTA-Fluid Industrietechnik each showcased their respective technology and system solution capabilities. In support of greater productivity in diverse industrial applications, machines and processes, Parker with these six distributors, presented its valves, pumps, filters, gaskets, hoses, controllers, motors, drives and controls, plus other related components and accessories. The company’s optimized, durable and resource-saving solutions can be combined to offer customers tailor-made system solutions from a single source.

Special focus was on the company’s EcoReach system, Thermal Management solutions and the TFP 2-Way Servo-Proportional Valve Series. Applications in the Future Lab demonstrated Parker’s systems solutions capabilities as a valued added partner. The display area’s showcased the company’s capabilities in combining its core technologies to enable OEMs to reduce system complexity and production flow time through effective systems integration.



EcoReach is a highly-engineered system combining state-of-the-art core Parker technologies.


The result is an integrated hydraulic and traction powertrain system, that delivers vast improvements in performance and efficiency, while at the same time simplifying build procedures and reducing costs for forklift OEMs.

The system gives increased battery life, productivity, load handling and operation speed, and a significant reduction in energy consumption.

EcoReach comprises a number of enabling technologies, each of which has been optimized to provide a fully integrated package tailored to the needs of forklift manufacturers and users. Technologies integrated include a PMAC motor that improves load handling and reduces energy consumption, a reversible pump that converts shaft power into hydraulic power and runs as a motor driving the electric motor as a generator, and an optimized valve system featuring a combination of different technologies designed specifically for forklift applications.

EcoReach also features an integrated hydraulic unit with the motor, pump, and hydraulic valves all incorporated into a single housing; this minimizes the number of components, enhancing reliability and reducing installation size.

The EcoReach forklift assembly system is the highlight of Parker’s traditional hydraulic technology. The electric forklift is handled by an electro-hydraulic system. The powertrain consists of a series of separate components: an inverter that converts battery energy into the alternating current; an electric motor that outputs torque and speed; and a hydraulic pump that provides flow and pressure; and a hydraulic system controls the valve block to control the flow and pressure of the required hydraulic function.


Thermal management

The entire production and product lifecycle of systems and machines are often dependent on efficient cooling to maintain optimum operating temperatures. Parker displayed its broad range of thermal management components in its Future Lab area at Hannover. Amongst the technologies on display were the company’s NSA, NSI, NSE series and various sizes of couplers. These can be combined with Sensonodes (diagnosing, transmission and monitoring devices) and manifolds to build customized thermal management solutions.

Parker quick couplings that can be assembled without tools, to connect cooling elements for thermal management applications, were also exhibited. The low pressure drop in these systems helps to optimize energy consumption.

All the products have a flat sealing valve design that allows connection and disconnection without fluid loss.

Maintenance times are shortened significantly thanks to quick coupling and uncoupling. Also, thanks to the shut-off couplings, the fluid can remain in the circuit during maintenance work and does not need to be drained.


New 2-Way Servo-Proportional Valve Series TFP 

With its TFP series of cartridge valves, Parker has demonstrated further innovation in its Future Lab at Hannover Messe. 

The new 2-way servo proportional valve with VCD® technology is based on the current  TDP and TEP families. The TFP series builds on the excellent flow characteristics, precision, and dynamics of these existing products to deliver shorter cycle times, more stable processes and minimized scrap rates.

The TFP Series is characterised by a completely new, flow-optimized design. In combination with numerous other technical enhancements, the TFP series achieves flow values that were previously only possible by opting for a larger size valve.

Finally, as a special highlight, Parker also presented the new TFP series as a 3D-printed version. The fully functional valve will clearly demonstrate the exciting possibilities of additive manufacturing.


Latest products on show

There were a number of other innovative products and technologies on display at the Parker stand this year, including:

Parker's Push-Lok 801PLUS is a very flexible all-rounder with Nitrile (NBR) inner tube and a working pressure of up to 2.4 MPa, available in six different colors and compatible with Push-Lok fittings in series 82 in steel, stainless steel and brass.

The LF 3000® pneumatic fitting range, with its wide variety of shapes and configurations, allows you to find the perfect connector to meet your needs and thus optimise the use of your equipment.

SensoNODE Bluetooth-powered sensors for route-based monitoring, catch performance fluctuations and deliver the data in both real-time and historical trends with VoM Industrial Mobile App

Parker's ServiceJunior diagnostic test kits are ideal to digitally measure pressure and capture min and max fluctuations in any hydraulic or pneumatic system.
