HydraForce has taken the guesswork out of specifying the most common hydraulic control schemes by providing engineered circuits featuring optimal flow and directional control valve combinations. Called INTEGR8, the aim of these circuit configurations is to save engineering time and take some of the guesswork out of specifying the most common hydraulic control schemes. This […]
HydraForce will showcase innovative electrohydraulic control solutions for the construction and mining industries in Hall A4 Booth #425 at Bauma Munich, April 15-21, 2013. Protecting equipment from corrosion is a HydraForce initiative with the launch of corrosion-resistant coatings for standard, as well as high-pressure-rated cartridge valves. The zinc-nickel plating withstands 1,000 hours of salt spray […]
Chicago-area manufacturer HydraForce was founded in 1985 on the principles of offering the highest quality products and what the company calls “unparalleled customer service.” Seeing a gap in the marketplace, founders Jim Brizzolara, Dick Fontecchio, and Ron Reuter sought out advice from industry insiders and took aim at the cartridge valve market with innovative designs.
HydraForce Hydraulic Systems (Changzhou) Co. Ltd. has achieved ISO 9001:2008 certification for manufacturing hydraulic manifold systems, making it the third HydraForce facility to be ISO 9001-certified. HydraForce plants in Lincolnshire, Illinois, U.S.A. and Birmingham, England, U.K. are already ISO-9001-certified. The Changzhou plant, located about 120 miles west of Shanghai, opened for business in June 2011 […]
HydraForce released a hydraulic pressure relief cartridge valve that meets the highest level of safety of the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 97/23/EC – Category IV, Group 2. The RVD50-20P cartridge valve is CE-marked and intended for high pressure applications that must comply with PED 97/23/EC, such as hydraulic accumulator charging circuits for hydrostatic brakes, […]
HydraForce has released the latest version of its hydraulic circuit design tool. Version 3.3 of i-Design supports the trend toward higher hydraulic system pressures, smaller hydraulic “footprints” and greater global application of hydraulic manifolds and cartridge valves.
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.
HydraForce has collaborated with Famic Technologies Inc. to incorporate their valve library into Famic’s Automation Studio software.
i-Design version 3 is a free hydraulic system design software that helps you create custom integrated manifolds. The product incorporates the schematic layout and pricing tool from previous versions with the addition of a 3D layout tool.
HydraForce’s i-Design Version 3 is designed for hydraulic controls and sales engineers who would like to integrate, simplify, and cut costs in their hydraulic systems by creating custom integrated manifolds.
