Nothing talks about the performance of a product more than numbers. When we look at the performance of anything, we need to compare or benchmark it against something else. Usually we benchmark something against the best in class or the best in a particular category. These metrics will tell us how we stack up against the competition.
But it gets a little tricky when we try to compare products in the fluid power industry. There are endless variations of pumps, valves, systems, designs, motors, and on and on. And to make it more complicated, the Hydrapulse® is a brand new way to do a hydraulic system. Its literally in a category all by itself. We are calling this category an EHPU or an electro-hydraulic power unit since it is a complete power unit all in one. The Hydrapulse® is more than a pump, or a motor, its so much more.
So let’s start bench-marking our technology against some metrics that are well known in fluid power.
