Success Story for Industrial Applications in China

While Poclain Hydraulics is clearly identified as a leader when it comes to hydrostatic transmissions for mobile applications, our customers also recognize Poclain Hydraulics’ ability to deliver high performing and reliable hydraulic solutions for stationary applications such as shredders, tunnel boring machines and bulk material handling equipment.
In addition to developing its presence on the stationary hydraulic market, in the past few years Poclain Hydraulics has extended its presence in China. This growth has been reinforced by the Poclain Hydraulics, facility located in Shanghai since 2011.
The following two success stories illustrate the success of Poclain’s strategy in the region.

Hangzhou Heavy Machinery and Shanghai Jellix Hydraulics Co. Ltd (Shredder)

Today the Chinese government is conscious of the environmental challenge and is strongly committed to preparing the country for a more sustainable growth.
An example of this environmental concern is the incentive to develop a recycling solution for all types of waste, offering strong opportunities for shredder manufacturers.
Anticipating this trend, the company Hangzhou Heavy Machinery, already a leader in consolidation equipment for ground foundation, decided to penetrate the recycling market and in 2013 developed their first shredder.

While Poclain Hydraulics is clearly identified as a leader when it comes to hydrostatic transmissions for mobile applications, our customers also recognize Poclain Hydraulics’ ability to deliver high performing and reliable hydraulic solutions for stationary applications such as shredders, tunnel boring machines and bulk material handling equipment.
In addition to developing its presence on the stationary hydraulic market, in the past few years Poclain Hydraulics has extended its presence in China. This growth has been reinforced by the Poclain Hydraulics, facility located in Shanghai since 2011.

The following two success stories illustrate the success of Poclain’s strategy in the region.
Committed to becoming a leading company in the shredding field, their strategy was to propose the highest operating performance and reliability while offering strong service levels to their customers. Hangzhou is also very conscious of the severity of the shredding application and the need to avoid any down time.

After having investigated the market needs, Hangzhou Heavy Machinery first had to consider the accuracy of waste recycling in China: since waste is not always sorted, the shredding system needs to be as versatile and robust as possible, in order to operate with a large variety of incoming material (metal, plastic, paper, rubber, etc.).
This is why, when choosing which technology to use for the cutting drive, the design team selected low-speed, hightorque hydraulics motors, which provide high torque capacity while being less sensitive to sudden direction changes and load peaks, when compared with electric or high speed hydraulic motor and gearbox.

As expressed by M. Gaoqing Han, Vice General Manager in charge of Engineering, the key decision driver for the choice of their hydraulic supplier was to select a company that offered the highest guarantee of success thanks to their experience and recognized track record on this very demanding application.

Hangzhou Heavy Machinery was looking for companies offering adequate technology but also with strong references in the shredding market.With over 20 years experience in supplying hydraulic motors for shredders and references among the world’s leading manufacturers, the choice of Poclain Hydraulics became obvious!

Following a close collaboration with the local Poclain Hydraulics sales and application team to define the right solution, the design team selected the MS125, which provides a displacement up to 15l with a maximum rated pressure up to 320bar. The Poclain Hydraulics MS125 is one of the most popular hydraulic motors for shredders.

Once the motor was selected, the request from Hangzhou Heavy Machinery was to work with a single supplier for the complete hydraulic system.

This is why Poclain Hydraulics proposed the exchange and crossover relief valve, which protects the motor from excessive pressure and heat and maintains a reasonable oil temperature in the close loop circuit.

To complete the offering, Poclain Hydraulics proposed a partnership with Shanghai Jellix Hydraulics Co. Ltd to supply the rest of the system, including the hydraulic power unit.

Once the design was completed, it was time for Hangzhou Heavy Machinery to release their shredder, called HZPS001, on the Chinese market. Hangzhou has had lots of success so far, and they continue to record high sales, with an expected growth of 10% for 2016, thanks to their robust design and performance.

 

 

This development was a first step in the new company strategy for Hangzhou Heavy Machinery. The company has decided to dedicate more resources to develop this new market and address the rising demand for shredding solutions.
Hangzhou can definitely count on the support of Poclain Hydraulics, which proposes a wide range of hydraulic solutions, including new motors with displacements up to 30l and a power capacity of 500kW, to equip demanding shredding applications.
