Active Damping

An R&D project is combining the super-fast characteristics of Digital Displacement® pumps with a Danfoss PLUS+1® controller to improve control and reduce ‘bounciness’ and oscillations in off-highway and material handling machines. It’s a problem common to many off-highway and material handling machines.

Very small movements in a joystick can translate to large movements and ‘bounciness’ in a bucket or boom. This can be tiring for the operator, it introduces risk and wastes time and energy over the course of a work-cycle, resulting in less productivity at the end of the day.

These oscillations can be reduced in the hands of a skilled operator, but as we move to increased automation and improved operator experience, a technical solution offering better control can be found.
