Hydac Hydraulics offers custom manifolds designed to simplify system procurement and reduce acquisition costs through single subassembly sourcing. The company’s various hydraulic components can be designed into a manifold, and customer labor costs can be transferred to the company for testing and assembly of several components into a single compact design. Manifolds are available in aluminium, steel, or ductile iron. Incorporating cartridge valves and other hydraulic components into integrated manifolds reduces points of external leakage, according to the company. Hydac also provides technical support services such as application and design, 2- and 3-D cartridge valve library, manifold accessory hardware, and cavity forming tools.
