Professor Monika Invantysynova – a tribute

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Professor Monika Invantysynova. We first learned of Monika and her husband Jaroslav as a result of their seminal text on fluid power machinery, which has become a standard reference for our machine designers. Following the book, she led the Maha Fluid Power […]

Digital Displacement – its time has come

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 […]

Batteries won’t cure all of Scotland’s transport ills

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 […]

Diesel’s demise is a long way off for off-road vehicles

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 […]

Digital Displacement® Rail Transmission with Flywheel Energy Storage

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 […]
