Timothy from Italy has cooperated with AAK for 4 years. Our first cooperation started from hydraulic manifolds. In the first half of this year, their company planned to introduce a new, multi-functional hydraulic press at the exhibition. But the equipment debugging was not smooth, the operation efficiency was not high, and the energy consumption was also large. Their engineer thought that a certain hydraulic component on the hydraulic manifold was insensitive and caused the problem. But after independent test, the components were normal. After comparing with the original design drawing of the hydraulic manifold for several times, problem still was not found. The technology department and the purchasing department shirked each other, and the boss got angry. If they missed the promotion, the project team would be dismissed. Timothy contacted the original hydraulic manifold manufacturer, but the manufacturer had no idea. Timothy was worried.
Timothy emailed me about the solution for this hydraulic manifold. I jokingly said that it seems that no inquiry was sent to me for this hydraulic manifold before. Timothy thought I didn't want to participate because it was not produced by AAK. He explained that this is the hydraulic manifold manufacturer designated by his supervisor. According to the hydraulic schematic diagram and hydraulic manifold drawing provided by Timothy, AAK technical team found the cause 3 days later. I told him that AAK was 90% sure of its success in redesigning and testing the hydraulic manifold. Timothy learned that there would be a 6,000 US dollars development cost for the hydraulic manifold. He hesitated and asked me to wait for the news. I was a little surprised. The time was burning fast, why still wait. I didn't ask. 1 week later, Timothy sent me the bank slip for the development cost and reminded me that I must succeed, otherwise he would be in trouble.
After 45 days, AAK sent 6 hydraulic manifolds. Two weeks later, Timothy told us that the equipment installed with AAK hydraulic manifolds had a smooth trial run and would not miss the exhibition period. Last week, Timothy said that the equipment promotion was smooth and the reservation exceeded expectations. The boss was very happy. He suggested that I hurry up to prepare materials. The first order of their hydraulic manifold could be issued to AAK next week.
The hydraulic manifold newly designed by AAK has 3 key points. It is difficult to find a third hydraulic manifold manufacturer in Ningbo who can take these 3 points into account at the same time.
1. The overflow circuit in the original hydraulic manifold system is changed into an automatic unloading circuit, and then matched with the AAK logic cartridge valve. In this way, the heating of the system is reduced, the working performance of the system is improved, and the energy consumption is reduced by about 20% compared with the original design.
2. The differential circuit design simplifies the hydraulic manifold system, reduces the operation cycle of the hydraulic system from 30 seconds to 20 seconds, and greatly improves the production efficiency.
3. The three pump oil supply of the original hydraulic manifold system is changed to the two pump oil supply, and the return oil pressure is used to directly cool the return oil. In this way, the series link of the system is reduced, the system pipeline is simplified, the energy is saved, and it is helpful for energy consumption and efficiency.
Timothy told me privately that without the support of his supervisor for the development fee of 6000 US dollars for the hydraulic manifold, he paid it by himself. The boss was surprised by his actions and appreciated him. He gradually replaced the original supervisor.
AAK hydraulic manifold, energy saving, high efficiency, you can also try a small order!
