A few days ago, Jackson, who is engaged in hydraulic manifolds procurement from Honeywell, one of the world's top 500 companies, asked me a question. Can you sum up the differences between AAK hydraulic manifolds and other China hydraulic manifold manufacturers in one sentence? Without thinking, I told him about 3 points: learn from the advanced, be close to the “rich”, and follow the right path ". The 13 years of AAK hydraulic manifolds relies on adhering to these 3 points.
To learn from the advanced, first of all, we should be good at learning from excellent peers, especially from the leading international brands. I warn my engineers that we do not pursue the most advanced technology, but we must be close to advanced enterprises, and take stability and reliability as our lifeline.
Various types of hydraulic cartridge valves are the core components of hydraulic manifolds. SUN, HydraForce and HAWE etc, these No. 1 brands in the mass market or the niche market, are the target of AAK's learning and benchmarking. We often dissect their new models, learn design, refine elements, analyze process, optimize technology, and gradually form a complete AAK hydraulic manifold system from the original design, processing drawings, material selection, material heat treatment, process sheet, processing technology, assembly, and testing.
Be close to the “rich”, cooperate with the strong, and cooperate with the world's top 500. They are interested in the manufacturing quality, function reliability and performance stability of your hydraulic manifolds. They talk to you about quality and service in a comfortable way, then you have more motivation and responsibility. It also contributed to AAK's willingness to invest in R&D, equipment iteration and talent introduction, and gradually became a strong player.
Follow the right path. If there is a shortcut in manufacturing, taking the right path is the only shortcut. This is not only a long-term principle, but also a way to avoid detours, which is also the core of continuous operation of manufacturing enterprises. To do something and not to do something is to be a hero. If you tell a lie, you need to tell at least 10 more lies to cover the original lie, which is too tired and annoying. Drug dealers and arms dealers must earn a lot of money, but we can't do it. What good is it to do something that has no positive significance to society? There are universal axioms and universally recognized moral bottom lines in this world. No matter what industry and product an enterprise is in, it should follow these axioms and bottom lines. Google's business philosophy of "Do not be evil" is very reasonable.
Many enterprises believe that "strength is the truth". They believe that with the support of capital, market input regardless of cost, and consumers fooling, they can achieve huge sales and profits. They believe that with market share, users will cater to them. In fact, this is to begin at the wrong end. Only your manufacturing quality continues to benchmark the authoritative brands, and the reliability of the function and the stability of the performance, adhere to the right path, not be impatient, is the source power.
It is hard to engage in manufacturing industry, especially the hydraulic unit, the hydraulic manifold with technology, which is slower, more stupid and more solid than others. It is the smart people who make toil efforts. There is no shortcut to this road. There is no safe haven. Without “1”, the manufacturing quality takes the lead in the front, any more 0 after will eventually return to zero. Just like life, whether you can stand on the waves, and whether you can hold on the bottom of the waves.
The manufacturing quality of hydraulic manifolds relies in slower, more stupid and more solid work of intelligent people. There is no shortcut to this road. There is no safe haven. Without “1”, the manufacturing quality takes the lead in the front, any more 0 after will eventually return to zero. Just like life, whether you can stand on the waves, and whether you can hold on the bottom of the waves.
AAK hydraulic manifolds, learning from the advanced, close to the “rich”, and taking the right path, we will move forward together.
