Concentric AB secures order for new electric oil pump technology with leading global OEM
Concentric AB has recently received an order from a global OEM of heavy trucks and buses to produce electric oil pumps for their hybrid applications. Production will start in the second half of 2018, and is expected to generate total revenues of approximately MSEK 38 across Europe ramping up over an 8 year period, reaching a mature volume of 8,000 p.a. in 2026.
This exciting new product reinforces the company’s reputation for reducing fuel consumption, increasing system efficiency, providing high power density and reducing noise.
Concentric's electric oil pump offers system power savings through its variable pressure and speed control capability with the additional benefits of low noise. It also offers on-demand flow and variable speed capability.
The new electric oil pump product allows CAN Bus communication between the motor and the vehicle's main control system so as to control pressure and flow on demand. This significantly reduces system losses compared to traditional mechanical drive systems, ensuring optimum performance.
David Woolley, President and CEO of Concentric AB, commented: “This first major nomination for Concentric’s new electric oil pump technology is another significant breakthrough in a market driven by increased electrification and control. Our modular design strategy is ideally suited for a wide range of applications for emerging hybrid electric vehicles and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to innovation that enables our customers to achieve sustainable solutions.”
The Concentric electric oil pump has been developed in collaboration with a leading supplier of electric motors, resulting in a permanent magnet, brushless DC motor with integrated motor drive electronics. The elimination of brush wear contributes to the unit's ability to operate continuously and trouble-free.
Concentric AB is an innovator in flow control and fluid power, supplying proprietary systems and components to the world’s truck, agricultural machinery, construction equipment and industrial applications end-markets. The company has manufacturing facilities in the UK, USA, Germany, Sweden, India, China and Argentina. In addition to supplying oil, fuel transfer and water pumps for diesel engines, the group also manufactures lubrication pumps for transmissions and compressors within its range of engine products.
