Business Segments Description

Over the past 47 years, the Hydraulics segment has provided global capital goods industries with hydraulic components and systems used to transmit power and control force, speed and motion. Our products typically add a fine degree of precision and safety to the machinery and equipment in which they are used.
Sun’s hydraulics products are sold globally through a combination of wholly-owned companies, representative sales offices and independent, authorized distributors. Activities at Sun companies and sales offices include technical support, inventory warehousing, distributor management and custom manifold design and manufacturing. Our global distribution network includes representation in almost all industrialized markets. Distributors are the local experts in our products. They typically hold local inventory and transact all business with customers.

On a component level, the Hydraulics segment designs and manufactures screw-in hydraulic cartridge valves, manifolds, and integrated fluid power packages and subsystems. Our products provide an important function within a hydraulic system: to control rates and direction of fluid flow and to regulate and control pressures.
Our screw-in hydraulic cartridge valves use a fundamentally different design platform compared to most other competitive product offerings, which are often referred to as industry common products. The floating construction that we pioneered results in a self-alignment characteristic that provides performance and reliability advantages compared to most competitors’ product offerings. This floating construction differentiates our products from those of most of our competitors, who design and manufacture rigid screw-in cartridge valves that fit a common cavity. Our cartridge valves, offered in five size ranges and including both electrically actuated and non-electrically actuated products, were designed to be able to operate reliably at higher pressures, making them equally suitable for both industrial and mobile applications. Sun’s product development approach yields a product line of extreme breadth and depth compared to our competitors. Our broad scope of product offering, coupled with the high performance characteristics of our cartridge valves, makes Sun a leader in our industry.

To fully leverage our cartridge product family, we routinely compete in the manifold and custom integrated package market. A manifold is a solid block of metal, usually aluminum or ductile iron, which is machined to create threaded cavities and channels into which screw-in cartridge valves can be installed and through which the hydraulic fluid flows. These products allow customers to easily integrate our screw-in cartridge valves into their machinery and equipment. Once designed, standard manifolds require minimal, if any, maintenance engineering over the life of the product and can be manufactured at each of our manufacturing operations. An integrated package consists of multiple cartridge valves assembled into a custom designed manifold for a specific customer to provide the specific operating characteristics of a customer’s circuit. Because of the unique nature of our cartridge valve designs, manifolds may be designed and machined to make them up to 50% smaller when compared to manifolds that use only industry common cartridge valves.

Additionally, we have internally-developed proprietary expert system software that we use to manufacture custom manifolds efficiently in low volumes. Integrated packages provide many benefits to end users and equipment manufacturers, including reduced assembly time, order simplification, reduced leakage points, aesthetics, potentially fewer hose and fitting connections, and more control functions in a single location.

In recent years, we have aggressively expanded our offering of electrically-actuated cartridge valves with design technology developed by HCT. Our design approach has allowed us to quickly offer a full range of electrically-actuated cartridge valves, helping to increase the competiveness of our integrated package offerings. Because hydraulics systems are increasingly taking signals from on-board electronic control systems, it is necessary for hydraulic products to be capable of digital communication.
We do not warrant our products for use in any of the following applications, (i) any product that comes under the Federal Highway Safety Act, such as steering or braking systems for passenger-carrying vehicles or on-highway trucks, (ii) aircraft or space vehicles, (iii) ordnance equipment, (iv) life support equipment, and (v) any product that, when sold, would be subject to the rules and regulations of the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Sun, through our HCT brand, designs and manufactures electronic controllers, which manage the function of electrically actuated hydraulic components. HCT’s products range from simple one valve, manually adjusted controllers to fully integrated hydraulic control systems managing multiple hydraulic valves as well as other input and output products such as joysticks and displays. All controllers are potted and therefore impervious to outside influence, making them ideal for mobile, industrial and marine applications.

In 2016 we acquired Enovation Controls to further develop our digital and electronic capabilities in accordance with our strategy. A portion of the product portfolio offered by Enovation Controls serves end markets also served by our Hydraulics segment such as off-highway vehicles including construction, agricultural and utility vehicles as well as material handling equipment. However, the majority of Enovation’s products are sold into end markets not historically served by our Hydraulics segment such as marine, power generation and recreational vehicles. This provides additional diversification of Sun’s customer base.
Globally, electronics products are sold primarily direct to customers, with a small portion sold through independent, authorized distributors. End markets within the Electronics segment are divided into two lines of business: Power Controls (“PC”) and Vehicle Technologies (“VT”). PC serves a variety of end markets, some of which are outlined below, with products such as displays, panels, gauges, controllers, battery chargers and various end devices. VT serves the recreational vehicles end market with products such as electronic controls, displays and instrumentation.

Power Controls
For the off-highway market, Enovation Controls offers rugged and reliable instruments, coupled with expertise in J1939 engine protocol, to produce an industry-leading array of easy-to-read displays and gauges for controller area network (CAN) transmitted engine data and faults. Our PowerView™ system goes a step further with even more focus on the operator interface: larger, full-graphic displays; flexible hardware configurations; multi-language support; class-leading environmental protection; and software tools that deliver the ultimate solution for OEM display customization and CAN control. Product categories include traditional mechanical and electronic gauge instrumentation, plug and go CAN-based instruments, after-market support through global distribution, complete, custom panel and console offerings, engineering and application specialists, 3D solid modeling, proprietary hardware and software development and wiring harness design and manufacturing.
For the agricultural market, Enovation provides a compact, customizable, all-in-one unit that meets the needs of engine-driven pumping equipment applications.
