Danfoss and RISE Robotics collaborate on new innovation to ‘accelerate electrification of heavy machinery’

Danfoss Power Solutions and RISE Robotics have signed a collaboration agreement to jointly validate and test a key innovation that has the potential to transform the heavy machinery market through electrification.

Danfoss Power Solutions, a global supplier of mobile and industrial hydraulics as well as electric powertrain systems, and RISE Robotics, a leading zero-emission heavy machinery company, have formalized their collaborative relationship.

The two businesses have signed an agreement to work together to validate the latest electromechanical actuator technology from RISE.

This new partnership is an example of how both companies prioritize innovation and find new ways to meet the increasing demand for electrification solutions coming from current and prospective customers.

Eric Alström, Danfoss Power Solutions president, says: “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.

“We’re taking bold steps to battle climate change and help customers around the world decarbonize. Electrification is a critical enabler to the Green Transition, and we’re thrilled to be on this journey with RISE.”

Arron Acosta, RISE Robotics CEO, says: “We are delighted to collaborate with Danfoss.

“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.

Alström says: “RISE’s unwavering dedication to commercializing scalable solutions enabled by advanced technology is the same pioneering spirit that has fueled Danfoss’ journey from startup to industry leader.

“We look forward to working toward these goals together.”
