Pascal Kiwitz

Pascal has a PhD in mechanical engineering from ETH Zurich in Switzerland where he developed a new control strategy for the exhaust gas aftertreatment of Diesel engines. When integrating these findings into a real product at Liebherr, he became familiar with the controls of hydraulic pumps. This led to a position at Bucher Hydraulics, where he worked on the electrification of mobile working machines. Since the beginning of this year, Pascal leads Bucher’s innovation department.


How to power the working hydraulics of electrified machines silently and efficiently.

The electrification of mobile machinery has taken off fast. As a result, manufacturers are experimenting with electrified working hydraulics. The disappointment is great when noisy hydraulics drain valuable battery capacity too quickly. A solution is Bucher Hydraulics' electro-hydraulic pump which determines the optimal pump speed and allows the continued use of the existing working hydraulics. Therefore, it is ideally suited for taking the first steps in the electrification of mobile machinery.
