Abstract
THE APPLICATION OF LOAD-SENSING HYDRAULICS IN AN AUTOMATED SYSTEM DESIGNED AS A TANK AMMUITION HANDLER IS PROPOSED. THIS STATE-OF-THE-ART COMPONENTS LEND THEMSELVES TO EFFICIENT MATERIAL HANDLING APPLICATIONS AND HAVE BEEN PROVEN IN DESIGNS USING A MICROPROCESSOR CONTROL. A COMPUTER SIMULATION OF A LOAD-SENSING HYDRAULIC CIRCUIT WILL PERMIT TAILORING OF THE COMPONENTS BEFORE A HARDWARE COMMITMENT IS MADE A ROBOTIC DESIGN USING LOAD-SENSING ACTUATORS PROMISES AN EFFICIENT, RELIABLE APPROACH.
