Leading designer and manufacturer of hydraulic components, controls and brake systems, MICO Incorporated has opened a new facility in Minnesota, USA to accommodate its recently created Electrohydraulics (EH) Group.
The new group will focus on the growing market potential for electronic controls in combination with hydraulic brakes.
Actively involved in designing and producing electrohydraulic systems for several years, MICO is dedicating a team of engineers to the development of electrohydraulic technologies on an exclusive basis with the newly created EH Group.
The group will be responsible for the design of ABS, traction control and electronic stability control systems for large commercial and military vehicles. The EH Group facility includes office, warehouse and laboratory space, allowing for on-site design, testing and verification.
According to MICO EH Group director Manfred Maiers, a fluid power industry veteran with 27 years of experience in embedded controls, the focus on electrohydraulic systems is recognition of the importance of this trend to the future of off-highway vehicle design.
In addition to MICO’s expansion into complex innovations like regenerative braking, the company will continue to enhance their existing electrohydraulic technology, providing specific customer solutions.
Since 1946, MICO has been a leading innovator of hydraulic components, controls and brake systems primarily for heavy duty, off-road commercial and industrial applications.
Custom Fluidpower is the official Australian distributor of the MICO product range.
