Brussels-based WABCO, a global supplier of technologies that improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles, has acquired MICO Inc., a supplier of hydraulic components, controls and brake systems for heavy-duty, off-highway vehicles in agriculture, construction, mining and similar industries. MICO generated revenues of approximately $52 million in 2015 and is headquartered in North Mankato, […]
MICO Inc., a designer and manufacturer of hydraulic components, controls and brake systems, has opened a new facility in Shakopee, Minn., to accommodate its recently created Electrohydraulics Group. The new group will focus on the growing market potential for electronic controls in combination with hydraulic brakes.
MICO’s new hydraulic-over-air relay valves are designed to convert hydraulic modulated input pressure to a proportional output air pressure. The new relay valves are ideal for various on- and off-highway applications, such as controlling an air-braked trailer with a hydraulically braked towing vehicle that has an air power source.
The Check Valve Assembly is ideal for full power hydraulic brake systems that must store energy in two separate accumulator circuits. It features high flow capacity up to 11 gpm and a maximum operating pressure of 3,625 psi.
520 Series hydraulic apply caliper disc brake uses a modulated hydraulic pressure source, such as a master cylinder, to control brake torque.
This system from Mico combines the control flexibility of electronics and the power of hydraulics to create a versatile braking system.
The S12 Series Electrohydraulic Brake Valve (EBV) from MICO, Incorporated provides more than triple the flow capacity of a traditional EBV. In large, spring-applied, hydraulic release brake applications, it has been able to replace two standard electrohydraulic brake valves operating in parallel or an EBV and relay valve.
