At HydraForce we believe that better performance comes from working together, and our engineers and field representatives will work with you to design your hydraulic control system. We understand that optimizing the performance of your machine starts with creative hydraulic integrated circuits, and when you work with HydraForce, you can select from the broadest product range in the industry.
Our design staff will collaborate with you and verify your design prior to manufacturing a prototype. Then we'll make any necessary refinements and engineer your product to meet your exact specifications. With proprietary innovations like our i-Design manifold tool, designing your hydraulic control schematic is easier than ever. The result is a performance- and configuration-optimized hydraulic solution that is designed exclusively for you.
About Hydraulic Manifolds
Custom hydraulic system manifolds (also called Hydraulic Integrated Circuits or HICs) consolidate and optimize machine control functions. They can be attached directly to steering units, pumps, and cylinders to shorten the hydraulic flow path and boost performance. This improves hose routing and reduces the number of hydraulic connections, which in turn reduces hydraulic leakage.
Hydraulic manifolds are flexible, compact, vibration-resistant, and reliable. Multiple control functions can be combined into a single manifold with the use of multi-function cartridge valves. Valve replacement or upgrading can be done easily and conveniently with little or no down time.
All manifolds are 100% circuit logic and function-tested.
HydraForce can provide the following options for your custom hydraulic control system manifold:
- Steel, aluminum, cast or ductile iron manifold blocks.
- Anodized or zinc plating for protection in severe environments.
- Industry-common valve cavities.
- Fittings, CETOP valves and accessory components can be included.
- "FastTrak" service for quick delivery of a working prototype.
- i-Design Hydraulic System design software available free of charge to qualified users.
Every HydraForce manifold is hydraulic function-tested to a documented customer/product-specific test procedure. Manifolds produced at our U.S. and U.K. facilities conform to the requirements of the ISO 9001 Certified Standard. HydraForce will mount customer specified fittings or other components not of our manufacture on request.
