At the end of last year, Stefan from Italy sent an email asking whether 50 non-standard hydraulic flow control valves could be produced within 25 days? For urgent orders like this, there is probably a problem with procurement. We have 3 years of cooperation with Stefan in some high-precision hydraulic flow control valves. Stefan is also an experienced purchaser in the hydraulic valve industry. Unexpectedly, he encountered problems on purchasing this time.
In the second half of last year, their company produced a batch of hydraulic winches, which needed hydraulic flow control valves. We also received an inquiry for this hydraulic flow control valve but did not get the order. Stefan frankly advised that AAK quotation was about 20% higher than that of other hydraulic flow control valves, so I gave it up, and told him that although AAK quotation was 20% more expensive than that of the peers, the service life of AAK hydraulic flow control valves was twice as long as theirs. Stefan didn't expect that 3 months after the equipment was sold, some customers complained that the hydraulic winch was unable to operate. The after-sales personnel found that it was caused by the leakage of the hydraulic flow control valve. The customer asked to solve the abnormal equipment problem within 1 month.
The original manufacturer of the hydraulic flow control valves advised that it should be the leakage caused by the wear of individual parts due to the poor accuracy. He is also willing to offer free replacements. Because this hydraulic flow control valve is customized and there is no inventory, and it takes 50 days to re-produce. Stefan has a big headache. He tried to contact other manufacturers of hydraulic flow control valves. They either rejected due to the small quantity or said that it would not be completed in 25 days. After the boss learned about these conditions, he asked Stefan to contact AAK again. Even if the price is higher, it can be completed within 25 days, moreover, there is no need to worry about the manufacturing quality of AAK hydraulic flow control valves. I told Stefan that as long as our production line can be adjusted, AAK will still maintain the original quotation of last year. After 25 days, AAK sent 50 hydraulic flow control valves, and Stefan finally relaxed.
Yesterday, Stefan sent an e-mail to express his thanks. After AAK hydraulic flow control valves were installed on the equipment, and there has been no complaint for 6 months. His boss wants to know how AAK produces hydraulic flow control valves in half the time of its peers?
1. In terms of component processing, the hydraulic flow control valve adopts Japan OKK ultra precision machine tool, especially its nano resolution numerical control system, which can ensure that the component processing accuracy can reach 0.01-0.3μm. The shape and profile accuracy is 0.003 - 0.1μm. At the same time, the fast moving speed of each shaft reaches 60m/min, which is more than 30% faster than the production efficiency of other machine tools. At the same time, under the operation of our technicians, the processed components are free of defects.
2. In the assembly, considering the accuracy difference of each component of the hydraulic flow control valve, our peers use the matching method to assemble, while AAK uses the unified assembly method, and the assembly efficiency is twice that of the peers.
3. In terms of production deployment, for special orders, we can operate 24H, and there is flexible production line deployment.
AAK hydraulic flow control valves, fast delivery, zero defects, you can also try a small order!
