Montanhydraulik developed a special hydraulic solution for its customer Cimolai Technology Spa for handling and transporting the solid boosters of the Ariane6 and VegaC launch vehicles and successfully put it into operation last year. For this purpose, a synchronized hydraulic solution was implemented to be able to grip and erect the solid boosters with a hydraulically controlled giant hand. The giant solids booster with a total weight of almost 300 tons is handled by a unique combination of customized hydraulic cylinders and systems.
It fills us with pride and enthusiasm that we, as hydraulic specialists, were part of such a highly exciting European project – under the management of Europropulsion S.A. – and were able to make an important contribution to it.
Our large cylinder system was also published in the magazine O+P Fluidtechnik, issue 3/2022 and chosen as Big Picture.
