Scanreco Displays Remote Control Technologies
Smart Operator and the product series based on the new G6 Platform from Sanreco is equipped with the company’s invention and a third-party approved safety solution. With it, Sanrenco brings solutions to local OEMs that was previously only available to global OEMs.
The G6 Platform literally brings the center stage into the hands of the OEM engineer and their customer. Even the operator can (and should, according to Scanreco’s concept Smart Operator) give their input on how to best configure the remote control for their application and specific usage. Scanreco’s new platform offers full flexibility as to where and how to place any lever, joystick, button, or switch without compromising on functional safety.

Alternative-Fuel Engines Featured by Kohler
Kohler, which has chosen the Munich tradeshow to present the new roadmap that will transform the group from a power producer to an energy supplier. On the road to clean energy, a first step forward has already been taken with the acquisition of Curtis Instruments, a leader in electric vehicle and hybrid applications. The acquisition expands and diversifies Kohler’s product portfolio, leveraging Curtis’ expertise in electrification, and solidifying Kohler’s commitment to hybrid and electrified solutions. Since February 2022, Kohler has allowed hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), a renewable fuel that can be produced from vegetable oils and fats, to be used on its entire range of diesel engines. Unlike conventional biofuels that are derived from crops that compete with food use, HVO is derived from waste that does not take land away from agriculture, leading to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions of up to 90%.
Alongside HVO, Kohler has also decided to include hydrogen as an alternative fuel: an incredibly versatile energy source whose technology is rapidly evolving. It will certainly be an uphill road, and we are only at the beginning. The hydrogen internal combustion engine will be a cost-effective drop-in solution, and potentially adaptable to most applications. Learn more from the Kohler press release or visit Stand A4.225.
