Lifco uses proprietary technology to give OEM engineers and service mechanics real time access to Lifco's hydraulic test stands while testing OEM components.
Prior to this project, test results were done through third-party software that was manually stored and then emailed to the customer when requested. Data consisted of the graphs and description of the test performed. The test procedure was performed manually and analysis of the results was performed visually. So there were a few issues; communication, consistency, and just being horribly inconvenient. The solution was to develop a data acquisition system in the Microsoft .NET framework.
Engineers at Lifco have developed a computerized testing system specifically to test hydraulic pumps, motors, cylinders and valves. Microcontrollers are employed at the reading stage to achieve maximum precision in measurements. A double average looping program ensures maximum stability of readings and make it one of the most stable and reliable hydraulic testing systems in the world. On some components there can be as many as 16 channels, plus outputs. So the volume of data generated is significant. Through edge computing, the maximum response is possible using dedicated computer and network systems at each testing station. The online testing software through the Lifco website provides direct uploads of the test results. OEM customers like Liebherr can collaborate with Lifco engineers to view test data, in real time.
We strive for the perfectly engineered test system, we ensure maximum perfection of adjustments through one of the best testing and hydraulic configuration technology. There is a reason Lifco was just awarded "Distributor of the Year" by Parker Pump & Power Systems Division.
