The Development Process for a New Variable Displacement, Open Circuit, Axial Piston Pump 982062
This paper describes the development process, and design features of the new 74cc/rev Series 45 open circuit hydraulic pump. The development process was optimized through use of a disciplined set of technical tools and business practices. This resulted in a new pump that offers increased performance with significantly reduced size, fewer components, and increased modularity compared to competitive products. In addition these tools and processes will make the product easier to support, simpler to apply, and will reduce development time for future pumps in the Series 45 family.
