Taimi Swivel Cartridge Integration

Sun Hydraulics is working with Taimi to integrate Taimi’s Swivel Cartridges into both the Sun Catalogue and the Sun QuickDesign™ program. This complementary technology allows Taimi’s uniquely designed components to synergize with Sun’s conventional high quality hydraulic solutions to enter new end markets. These include forestry, marine, offshore, robotics, cranes, underground and open pit mining, construction and demolition, agriculture, railway construction and maintenance, solar power, drilling and material handling.

Helios shares this news just weeks after announcing another year of record product line and technological innovation within its Hydraulic segment. The new offerings are expected to begin shipping between the second and third quarter of 2023.
