Innovation is our trade - since 1987.

We help you to find new solutions, either by improving your existing products, or by inventing entirely new concepts and designs.

Our small company is independent, and totally devoted to the art of design and development. Our strength is our craftsmanship: the combination of talented employees, knowledge, skills and creativity.



INNAS can help you with your own product development. We are proud of the many small, but also very large companies we have helped in the past decades. We cooperate with universities all over the world, utilizing the latest scientific findings and developments. Yet, we are not an academic institute. We are aware of the restraints and demands of the market and are used to the time and cost pressure of your industrial projects.


INNAS also engineers its own, unique products, especially for the fluid power market. The product development is continued to the point where critical risks have been eliminated and the industry is willing to take the new product into production. Being the owner of the industrial property, the technology is transferred to the industry by means of licenses.



To Higher pump speeds: Innas at the 11th IFK Conference


At the IFK, Peter Achten addressed how the speed of a Floating Cup pump can be further increased, meeting the demands for electro-hydraulic actuators. The pump speed can be increased considerably by reducing the wall thickness of the pistons and cups in the design. More details on this design feature of the Floating Cup pumps can be found in the peer-reviewed paper. Click here for a pdf.

The slides of his presentation can be found on our download page or by clicking here.

 The IFK Conference in Aachen was held from March 19- 21, 2018.

Vacancies (2) Mechanical Engineer MSc / BA


Due to an expanding workload in hydraulic pump & motor design, Innas has room for 2  mechanical engineers.


Innas' clients are industries in hydraulics, mobile machinery, automotive, aerospace and off-shore. Experience in piston pump design is not expected, but a strong belief that hydraulics can be strongly improved, is advantageous.


We prefer to work in multiple disciplines, covering a mix of design work, calculation and drawing, (FEM) analyses, but also testing & analysing of our products. But in case you are an expert in one of these fields, you are also welcome to apply.


We try to seek the most efficient and sustainable solutions.  These solutions also need to be better, technical and economical. In the end, we need to be able to sell our developments, for example by technology licensing.

Innas  at the ASME/BATH FPMC Symposium


On Tuesday October 17th, Peter Achten presented at the Symposium on Fluid Power and Motion Control, held in Sarasota, Florida. His presentation described Innas' new test bench for hydraulic pumps and motors. This test bench also allows testing at extremely low speed, between 0.001 and 1 rpm. The paper and presentation address why this is of importance for further  improvement of hydraulic machines. More information on the conference can be found by clicking here. The paper can be downloaded here.


Floating Cup Licence granted - mobile & industrial markets


Breda, January 2015

Innas announces that it has granted a (non-exclusive) license agreement for the Floating Cup technology, for use in hydraulic pumps and motors. The licensed area is world-wide. The field of use includes mobile equipment such as construction and agricultural machinery and industrial applications. The licensee, which is a leading supplier in the international hydraulic market, has chosen to make further announcements in a later stage.
