One thing quickly became clear: if HAWE were to develop a completely new hydraulic power unit, it would not only have to surpass the characteristic values of the currently available units, but would also have to be forward-looking. This is how the INKA type came into being, an intelligent compact power unit, equipped with many interesting technical highlights as standard.
In 2019, HAWE Hydraulik and 7 other companies founded the network "Zero Waste - Reduce, Re-use, Recycle". In the last 2 years, a number of goals have already been achieved. After the initial focus was on the avoidance of single-use plastic, all possible topics of resource waste are now addressed during the network meetings.
HAWE Hydraulik supplements the series of axial piston pumps in the medium pressure range with the new type C40V as successor model for the type V40M. This particularly lightweight axial piston pump is designed and compactly built for use in open circuits of mobile machines. Available in various sizes, it efficiently supplies system solutions for pressure ranges up to 280 bar with the required flow rate.
After more than 10 successful years in various energy efficiency networks, HAWE Hydraulik is also starting in the first climate protection network "dekarbN" in Bavaria. This is a further step towards becoming an energy-efficient and climate-friendly company.
After a very good basis was created over the last years or since the initial certifications of HAWE Hydraulik SE sites, in December 2020 HAWE Slovenija was certified according to the three ISO standards: Environmental Management (ISO 14001), Occupational Health and Safety Management (ISO 45001) and Energy Management (ISO 50001). Thus, HAWE meets the increasing requirements regarding sustainability, environmental protection and occupational health and safety.
HAWE Hydraulik is merging its two existing production sites in China at a new, modern location in Wuxi. In the future, system solutions for key industries such as wind turbines, solar plants, machine tools and medical technology will be built here primarily for the local market. Construction work on the new building will start in mid-March 2021. The sales location in Shanghai will be retained.
