STEER SKID LOADER VALVE
This is a Skid Steer Loader Valve with Port Lock safety Redundancy.
The problem to be solved was to prevent oil flow to and from the cylinders when the operator bar is opened.
Done while at Walvoil Fluid Power, this patent still active, represents the safest operation in the conventional Cab Skid Steer Loaders Market.
Is used in all models of CASE and NEW HOLLAND SSL.
AERIAL PLATFORM CONTROL
This is a 5 Axis proportional control to be used on Aerial Platforms.
The patent was done while working for Walvoil Fluid Power during a R&D project with ALTEC.
Reducing weight in the articulated arms by removing the standard hydraulic control was the project driver.
The design didn't pass the prototype phase due to the limited accuracy of the potentiometers controls...
...but still very innovative idea considering the new advancement in electronics.
The Journey...for whoever cares...
