Digital Displacement pumps – improved off-highway efficiency – whichever future you choose

We are experts in digital mobile hydraulics

By replacing a standard pump with a digitally enabled pump, our customers enjoy improved productivity and control for better fuel consumption and the potential to downsize engines or battery packs. It is a technology which delivers benefits today and will be equally beneficial tomorrow - whichever route you take.

  • Smoother faster control means more work done per day
  • Improved engine-to-work efficiency means increased maximum power - with the same size engine. Or the opportunity to downsize engines, without any loss of power or control
  • Intelligent digital controls mean individual cylinders are only called into action when required, reducing losses system-wide
  • This means longer work-cycles or smaller batteries for next-generation electric machines

Digital Displacement® Innovation center

Each Danfoss Digital Displacement pump will be assembled at our new global Digital Displacement manufacturing and R&D facility near Edinburgh, Scotland.

Here we have developed a ground-breaking, dynamic manufacturing facility which brings a new approach to precision assembly. This will ensure quality at every stage.

The fully flexible facility has been custom designed from the ground up. Helping to assemble a new generation of Digital Displacement pumps for off-highway and industrial customers.

Production has already begun, with the first customer pumps rolling off the line in August.
