Duden is from Lukas hydraulic equipment company in Germany. We have cooperated for more than 2 years on hydraulic check valves and hydraulic throttle valves. The order volume is small each time, but the parameter requirements are very high. AAK never despised it because of the small order quantity of the hydraulic check valves or hydraulic throttle valves. At the end of last year, their company developed a new hydraulic unit. Due to time constraints, Duden purchased hydraulic check valves and hydraulic throttle valves from local hydraulic valve manufacturers in Germany. The technicians found the original design defects after installing the integrated valve into the equipment. The position of the hydraulic throttle valve next to the hydraulic check valve is high, accounting for a little position of the motor, which makes it difficult to install the motor.
Lukas engineers are a little depressed. If the position of the hydraulic throttle valve is changed, the whole oil circuit layout needs to be changed, but the power supply of the hydraulic system will be affected after changing the oil circuit. What is more troublesome is that there is not much time to redesign and proofing. The Engineers asked Duden to contact some local hydraulic valve manufacturers to check if the design size of the hydraulic throttle valve could be slightly adjusted so that the motor could be installed.
Duden checked with several local hydraulic valve manufacturers, all of them were not willing to make samples because of small quantity of the hydraulic throttle valves. Duden tried to purchase small-size hydraulic throttle valves from China to solve the installation problem of the motor. Some Chinese hydraulic valve manufacturers said that they could make samples according to the requested size of their hydraulic throttle valves, but the time needed was more than 30 days. Duden couldn't accept this time and was more worried about the quality of hydraulic throttle valves from these factories. Duden sent an email to AAK asking if we could make several samples of hydraulic throttle valves in 5 days. In the past, the sample time gave by Duden was usually flexible with more than 2 weeks. After asking, I learned that their designers are facing embarrassment.
It is also too tight for us to make several hydraulic throttle valves in only 5 days. I suggest Duden give us the overall layout of the integrated valve block. Maybe our engineer has a solution. According to the hydraulic schematic diagram provided by Duden and the specific use of the hydraulic integrated valve block, AAK engineers analyzed it step by step. Finally, it was found that if the hydraulic throttle valve and the hydraulic check valve were designed in parallel, the functions of the two valves were combined to form a hydraulic throttle check valve, which was installed at the position of the hydraulic check valve, and the installation hole of the hydraulic throttle valve was blocked with a plug. This not only saves the redesign time of the hydraulic integrated valve block, avoids the embarrassment that the motor can not be installed, but also has no impact on the pressure supply of the hydraulic system. Their designer was surprised that AAK used this idea to solve the pain point. He hoped that we could make the samples to test as soon as possible.
AAK sent the newly designed hydraulic throttle check valve to Duden. After installing the hydraulic throttle check valve into the integrated valve block, the results were as described by AAK, and the test was successful. The design engineers of Lukas company admire AAK unique design scheme and production capacity greatly.
AAK hydraulic throttle check valve can efficiently and timely solve problems for customers. Welcome to give it a try!
