Connor is from a Canadian agricultural machinery equipment company, mainly responsible for purchasing hydraulic components. In the second half of last year, the sales of one of their rotary tillers were poor. Users reported that the equipment was insensitive and inefficient, and the fuel consumption was 10% higher than that of the same type of equipment. The boss realized that there were hidden dangers in the hydraulic manifolds and asked the engineers to check the causes. However, more than 1 month had passed and there was no practicable plan. The boss was worried and asked Connor to contact the original hydraulic manifold manufacturer to see if they could provide technical support, but they were only good at producing hydraulic manifolds according to the drawings. Connor also asked all his manufacturers of hydraulic components, but none of them gave a plan. When Connor reported these to his boss, he could only helplessly look at his boss shaking his head.
Connor browsed AAK website, saw the display and introduction of hydraulic manifolds, and left a message: what is the relationship between hydraulic equipment with high energy consumption and slow response and hydraulic manifolds? I understood that Connor had a problem with hydraulic manifolds, but it was difficult to answer. After several communications, I learned that his boss was worried, and Connor wanted to solve the problem that had plagued his company for nearly 3 months.
According to the hydraulic manifold drawings and the video of rotary tiller work sent by Connor, AAK engineers had discussion. The probability was that the hydraulic manifold design had hidden problems. From the analysis of hydraulic manifold and system schematic diagram, there were certain energy conflicts between the design of some oil circuits and the selection of hydraulic valves. AAK could redesign the hydraulic manifold to match their equipment. Connor also readily paid the development cost. 1 month later, AAK sent the hydraulic manifold samples. 2 months later, Connor said that after their rotary tiller was installed with AAK hydraulic manifolds, it was responsive during operation. The operation was more than 20% higher than before, and the fuel consumption was also reduced by 20%. The customer feedback was good, and more and more customers came to try it out.
Connor told me privately that he had seen his boss's long lost smile. The boss paid more and more attention to him. He will be promoted to the management next month.
AAK hydraulic manifold has 3 advantages, and there may not be a second one in Ningbo.
1. AAK engineers have experience in hydraulic manifold design, especially in oil circuit design. Ensure flow distribution as required, eliminate bypass throttling loss and reduce energy loss. The sensitive oil circuit control makes the equipment easy to control, sensitive and efficient.
2. Hydraulic manifold material selection and proportioning. The material selection of each component from the valve block to the valve is based on the working conditions. The selection and allocation of all valves in the manifolds must comply with the energy principle under the condition that the system principle is met, without robbing energy or wasting energy. Without more than 10 years' experience in hydraulic manifolds, it is difficult to master its essence.
3. We make good use of MDTools software to design hydraulic manifolds. From circuit logic to the functionality of each valve, we can do personalized design and customized production of non-standard hydraulic manifolds.
AAK hydraulic manifold makes the equipment flexible, energy-saving and efficient. You can also have a try!
