Duplomatic was present at two main European trade fairs in Hannover Messe and in Bauma with important news about the company.
At the end of February 2019, Duplomatic's acquisition of the international company Hydreco Hydraulics was officially presented to the market, positioning the Duplomatic group as a leader also in the Mobile and Constructions sectors. Hydreco Hydraulics adds to Duplomatic's already extensive offer of components, a wide range of low noise helical gear, aluminium and cast iron gear pumps, as well as standard spur gear models. Its valve range covers multi-spool sectional and monoblock models with electro-hydraulic, hydraulic and lever control. Dual axis, stackable, and single axis hydraulic pilot valves with an extensive range of handle options complete the offer. Duplomatic CEO, Roberto Maddalon, underlined how the acquisition of Hydreco Hydraulics will contribute to the company gaining a strong positioning in the Mobile market, thanks to its leadership in the current solutions platform, consolidating Duplomatic's position as leader in the global motion control market.
In particular, Duplomatic took part in Hannover Messe to present the new product lines for Industry 4.0 and in Bauma, Munich, to illustrate in more detail its important development plan in the mobile and construction sectors.

The multifunctional demonstration Bench, equipped with electromechanical, hydraulic power and multi-bus solutions, aroused particular interest at the stand in all those who are looking for a stand-alone high-performance axis control solution, which reduces the PLC's computational load.
The IO-Link communication protocol for On-Off valves and proportional valves enables bidirectional data transmission functions using standard wiring. Duplomatic has introduced the IO-Link communication protocol to allow integration with every automation system, such as PLCs and middleware platforms that collect Smart Connected Operations data. The advantages are clear, ranging from predictive maintenance to avoid breakdowns and failures due to operation downtime, to performance measurement and verification for a general improvement of the conditions of plant productivity. In addition, the IO-LINK solutions also have the same M12 5-pin connector for each type of valve and allow diagnostics and setting adjustments, as required by Industry 4.0.
