The off-road vehicles of the future may consume less than half the energy used today – thanks to a multi-million project being led by Edinburgh technology firm Artemis Intelligent Power. A consortium led by the Scottish inventors has secured £11 million from the Advanced Propulsion Centre UK to help develop a new generation of ‘Digital […]
First conceived in the early 1990s, the concept of fully digital hydraulic pumps offered a future where radial piston machines, built with computer-controlled valves, would offer radical improvements in energy efficiency and control – for a range of applications, writes Dr Niall Caldwell, Managing Director of Artemis Intelligent Power. Now this vision is approaching commercial […]
A new wave of digital hydraulic pumps and motors will radically improve the efficiency of a range of heavy vehicles, trains and off-road machinery, says Niall Caldwell, Managing Director of Artemis Intelligent Power. The Scottish Government is to be lauded for its fantastic ambition in decarbonising our energy consumption – and transport has a very […]
The idea of battery-driven diggers may sound appealing, but in reality the energy requirements of off-road machinery make electric power very limited in practice. Diesel – with lower emissions – is here to stay, and a new generation of Digital Displacement® hydraulic pumps and motors can deliver radical fuel reductions and help the off-road market […]
Following on from the 2015 MacRobert Award, the Royal Academy of Engineering organised a discussion with the founders of the company. In this video produced by the RAE, hear about the journey from starting as a spin-out from the University of Edinburgh over 20 years ago to becoming a world leader in hydraulically powered systems.
After introducing the E-dyn 96 industrial pump, Artemis joined the ranks of other British Hydraulics companies and became a member of the British Fluid Power Associated. This year, Artemis makes it’s first entry into the Hydraulics and Pneumatics Yearbook.
Artemis is just back from showing a new kind of hybrid vehicle at the Cenex-LCV2014 low carbon vehicle event at the Millbrook Proving Ground in the Midlands. We’re proud to have been working since December 2012 with leading UK bus-builder Alexander Dennis and top-notch bus-operator Lothian Buses on this project which has been supported by […]
Artemis is proud to be a sponsor of the University of Strathclyde Motorsport team. Every year the team builds a new race car and competes in the UK Formula Student competition (which is organised by the IMechE), and also in Formula Student Germany. Something about spending enormous amounts of time working together on a real […]
In the UK as in most other countries, there is a general trend toward the electrification of railways. One of the attractions is the natural ability of electric drives to recirculate braking energy back into the network. However there are many routes that will remain diesel-powered well into the future. In a project supported by […]
The Big Green Challenge is a debating competition for S1 – S3 pupils (aged 11 to 14 years of age) from secondary schools in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. It aims to raise awareness and understanding of renewable energy by giving young people the opportunity to research and debate the issues surrounding the topic […]
