An increasing number of solutions are available from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), independent aftermarket suppliers, and remanufacturers. When searching for the best option to minimize downtime and total cost of ownership, users may consider reverse-engineered products that seem identical to the genuine original versions. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/why-risk-it-copycat-hydraulics" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/why-risk-it-copycat-hydraulics#comments Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Hydraulic Valves Mon, 08 Sep 2014 19:32:00 +0000 28681 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Smart, Compact Actuator for Mobile Hydraulics Valves http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-valves/smart-compact-actuator-mobile-hydraulics-valves <div class="field-deck"> Sonceboz recently introduced a smart actuator for use with mobile hydraulic valves on off-highway vehicles. </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Sonceboz SA, Sonceboz-Sombeval, Switzerland, specializes in intelligent electrical drive systems for customized applications.
