Last week, the Spanish customer Salvador sent an inquiry for a hydraulic valve block, which was the inquiry for the 4th time, and the inquiries in the first 3 times have already been placed orders for. Salvador has been engaged in the purchase of hydraulic valve blocks for many years, and it has been successful.
In March this year, they developed a large multi cylinder hydraulic cone crusher, which requires a hydraulic valve block weighing 1.5 tons. Salvador found a factory in the United States to make samples, and the equipment was successfully tested. 2 months after the promotion, there was a customer's reservation, but the price needed to be reduced by 15%. After costing, the boss asked to reduce the cost of the hydraulic valve block by 10%. Salvador contacted the manufacturer of hydraulic valve blocks in the United States, but the manufacturer refused to reduce the price. The boss asked Salvador to find a new manufacturer.
Salvador contacted the all their current suppliers of the hydraulic components. None of them were able to produce the hydraulic valve blocks weighing 1.5 tons, unless to find a professional oil circuit block manufacturer. Salvador found AAK in Google and sent an email inquiry with a try attitude. I replied to him that AAK has not processed the hydraulic valve blocks of more than 1 ton, but AAK is capable of processing this hydraulic valve block, and the accuracy of the valve hole absolutely meets the IT7-8 standard, and the roughness can reach Ra0.2-0.4.
After receiving the quotation from our cost accounting department, Salvador was a little surprised. After confirming that it was correct, he immediately placed order for 5 hydraulic valve blocks and paid the development cost. After 25 days, AAK delivered 5 hydraulic valve blocks. 2 weeks later, Salvador informed by email that the hole accuracy of AAK hydraulic valve block absolutely met the IT7-8 standard, and the roughness could reach Ra0.2-0.4. After it replaced the hydraulic valve blocks of the original American manufacturer, the equipment still operated normally. His boss was very happy to find a hydraulic valve block supplier benchmarking the American manufacturer, and the price was 30% lower.
AAK owns the full hydrostatic heavy 5 axis gantry machining center of INNSE Berardi, Italy. The column moves and the hydrostatic guide rail is preloaded. It is suitable for processing large hydraulic valve blocks with guaranteed accuracy. The machine tool can be equipped with a fixed or working beam (W-axis), and the special detection device can compensate the thermal drift, so that the tool can have high operation accuracy. The coordinate axis runs on the preloaded hydrostatic guide rail to ensure maximum rigidity and balance of operation.
AAK hydraulic valve blocks, 5 axis gantry machining center, welcome to have a try!
