Steelhead Composites MicroForce Product Brings New Options in Lightweight Hydraulics
The MicroForce lightweight diaphragm accumulator provides high strength and performance for applications such as robotics, luxury automotive, performance automotive, marine and aerospace. The 2-liter accumulator weighs a remarkable 1.8 KG which is 70% less than comparable steel accumulators. The offering is available now in standard configurations.
The patent pending design itself is also flexible, allowing for easy incorporation of custom diaphragm materials, as well as custom port options, geometries and pressures.
“Our MicroForce diaphragm accumulators are exciting innovations which open up possibilities not previously available to hydraulic engineers,” said Andrew Coors, CEO of Steelhead Composites. “This new accumulator is the largest diaphragm accumulator we’ve made to date, broadening our portfolio of ultra-lightweight diaphragm accumulators from 0.5 to 2 liters.
Value & Performance Attributes
Microforce products may be extremely lightweight, but it doesn’t sacrifice strength. The composite overwrap uses carbon fiber to give the unit a 3000 psi rating and has been tested to 3x burst pressure. It has been designed and tested in accordance to ISO 11119-2.
Key Applications to Consider
There several industries that can benefit from this state of the art product. High performance applications, such as robotics, luxury automotive, performance automotive, marine and aerospace are some examples of prime candidates.
“The optimized construction of the MicroForce product features unprecedented strength, weight, functionality and safety,” said John Cronin, Director of Operations for Steelhead Composites. “Applications which require reliable, real time performance, need to look no further. A customer came to us with a unique hydraulic need and we quickly solved their issue by designing and manufacturing this newest addition to the MicroForce family.”
