Danfoss Power Solutions and RISE Robotics are teaming up to jointly validate and test a key innovation that has the potential to transform the heavy machinery market through electrification

A leading global supplier of mobile and industrial hydraulics and electric powertrain systems to industries including quarrying and construction, Danfoss Power Solutions says its partnership with RISE Robotics, a leading zero-emission heavy machinery company, is an example of how both companies prioritise innovation and find new ways to meet the increasing demand for electrification solutions coming from current and prospective customers.

"It's an exciting opportunity to work with RISE Robotics to accelerate the development of solutions that have the potential to create near-term, low-carbon options for our customers," said Danfoss Power Solutions president Eric Alström. "We're taking bold steps to battle climate change and help customers around the world decarbonise. Electrification is a critical enabler to the Green Transition, and we're thrilled to be on this journey with RISE."

"We are delighted to collaborate with Danfoss," said RISE Robotics CEO Arron Acosta. "Innovation isn't for everyone, but at Danfoss, innovation is at the core of their DNA. Their speed of decision-making is electric. Their engineering and global manufacturing capabilities lead the way."

The RISE Cylinder (US Patent 11255416, patent pending: WO2019/014259) is a fluid-free, electromechanical alternative to hydraulic cylinders for heavy equipment and machinery. It helps address the battery-electrification challenges inherent in hydraulic systems by delivering hydraulic-like forces at unprecedented efficiency, precision, speed, and weight.

"RISE's unwavering dedication to commercialising scalable solutions enabled by advanced technology is the same pioneering spirit that has fueled Danfoss's journey from startup to industry leader," added Alström. "We look forward to working toward these goals together."
