Safety and ISO standards for designing electric mobile machinery training day 1


Companies as well as faculty, staff and students of Aalto University are invited to attend the first seminar & training of  Easy zonal hydraulics (EZE) research project. The event was meant to take place in May but is now postponed to September. We will soon publish the new date. 

Come and hear how to meet safety requirements for hybrid/electric off-road machinery and stationary applications! 

The training addresses requirements of combination of hydraulics and electric systems for developing hybrid/electric non-road mobile machine.

The business-oriented EZE project builds on the hybrid/electric non-road mobile machine and zonal hydraulics concepts, and expands the results of previous EL-Zon project to new challenging applications and practical guidance for companies. New features such as high controllability, diagnostics/condition monitoring and safety are investigated in the EZE project. The two year project is funded by Business Finland. 

The event is organized in cooperation with FIMA, Forum for Intelligent Machines ry.
