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.



Vacancy Mechanical Engineer MSc / BA -  pump design


Due to an expanding workload in hydraulic pump and motor design, Innas has room for a mechanical engineer, MSc / BA.


We prefer to work in multiple disciplines, above specializing, covering a mix of design work, calculation and drawing, (FEM) analyses, but also testing & analysing of our products and prototypes.


You don’t mind to try alternative technical solutions. We try to seek the most efficient and sustainable solutions, and in order to be successful, 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.


We operate in the hydraulic industry. Our clients are hydraulic industries, manufacturers of construction equipment, agricultural machinery, automotive, aerospace and off-shore. Understanding English and German is very helpful. Experience in piston pump design is not expected, but a strong belief that hydraulics can be strongly improved, is advantageous. In case you are interested in applying, please send a motivation and curriculum to Rob van Malsen, per email. You can call us for more information: +31 76 542 4080.

NFPA - FPIRC / ASME DSCC - Minneapolis, USA


In October Minneapolis was the place to be for fluid power. The NFPA organised the Fluid Power Innovation Research Conference, co-hosted with the ASME Dynamic Systems Controls Conference. Peter Achten gave a keynote on  October 12, 2016 The slides can be found on our download page.



Improving pump control - Peter Achten at the 10th IFK, Dresden


At the International Fluid Power conference in Dresden, Peter Achten gave a presentation on pump control on March 9, 2016. The difficulties and hurtles of improving existing (swash plate) pump control systems were addressed. Furthermore the presentation showed how the losses of pump control systems were minimised in axial piston pumps of the  Floating Cup design. The slides of the presentation are available on our download page.



Floating Cup Licence granted - mobile & industrial markets
