Markets show a clear trend towards an ever more extensive electronic networking in mobile and stationary applications. This requires a certain degree of electronic integration of hydraulic components such as axial piston pumps. Beside some well-known approaches, the transmission of axial piston units still is relatively unexplored regarding electronification. Nonetheless there is a quite high potential to be optimized by electronic. In view of this fact, the present paper deals with the tribological contacts of pumps based on a demand driven hydrostatic relief. The contact areas at cylinder - distributor plate, cradle bearing and slipper - swash plate will be investigated in detail and it will be shown how the pump behavior can be improved considerably through a higher level of relief and a central remaining force ratio. The potential of optimization is to improve the efficiency, especially in partial loaded operation, power range, also for multi quadrant operation, precision and stability. A stable lubricating film for slow-speed running and for very high speeds at different pressures is ensured as well.
