MDTools, the 3D manifold design software, provides power tools to automate the manifold design, checking, documentation, and modeling process within the Autodesk Inventor environment. Users can design large and complex manifolds easily, fast and error-free. MDTools checks the manifold for wall-thickness, wrong, missing and bad quality connections. MDTools automatically creates a professional drawing for you including […]

Bosch Rexroth valves used for variety of functions
With its controllable 2/2 directional cartridge valve LC2A-1X, Bosch Rexroth opens a variety of functions in hydraulics using standard parts. The series comes in 7 sizes ranging from 16 to 100. As the functionality is built from individual standard parts, engineering and assembly costs can be reduced. Circuit modifications and repairs also become less costly. […]
Muncie 17 Series Directional Control Valves
Muncie 17 Series directional control valves are suited for a variety of hydraulic applications where flow rates are low. 17 Series valves are sectional type, meaning that valve sections can be “stacked” in any combination for the requirements of the application. They are used for both open center or closed center circuits. Activation is via […]
NOSHOK expands valve products and manufacturing capabilities
NOSHOK expanded its valve product offering and valve manufacturing capabilities. The valve portfolio features standard bore and large bore needle and manifold valves, including block and bleed valves in hard or soft seat/tip designs with ratings up to 10,000 psi. Our valve design is patented for its performance and increased pressure capabilities. They also offer […]
Proportional valve series features more options
Continental Hydraulics is known for having rugged, durable, high-performance, and efficient products. But now, there’s a whole new reason: Motion Control Solutions. More options. More efficiencies. More convenient.
Comatrol introduces hydraulic proportional flow divider
Comatrol has introduced the PFD10-OD Proportional Flow Divider for compensated flow sharing between two motors or hydraulic circuits.
Cartridge valves allow pilot control of clutches, brakes, DCVs
Comatrol has introduced the 09 Series Cartridge Valves for proportional and on/off pilot control of clutches, brakes and directional control valves.
Directional control valve with built-in relief valve
The BG4D range of heavy duty, low leakage directional control valves is available with four methods of operation: lever, cam, air and oil pilot for flows up to 100 lpm (25 gpm).
NOSHOK offers range of needle valves
NOSHOK’s range of needle valves offers precise flow management in a variety of applications. Both hard and soft seat designs are available, and models include valves suitable for high pressure, high temperature and heavy-duty industrial applications.
Five ways to reduce your hydraulic footprint
HydraForce has recently added a section to their website explaining how their multi-function valves incorporate two or more functions into a single cartridge valve. By combining functions, they can reduce space claim, number of ports, and costly cross drills, while increasing flow passage and efficiency.
