Oil Control Valve

Thank you… your service was excellent, we will use you again in the future.

These were the words from a new customer that were emailed in to the team this morning. As one of the world’s leading suppliers to the commercial and military aerospace market our customer was looking for a Rexroth valve – or specifically a number of Oil Control hydraulic cartridge valves.

Oil Control was founded in Italy in 1973 when it began production of motion control valves. In 2005, the Oil Control Group became part of the Rexroth Group and changed its name to Bosch Rexroth Oil Control S.p.A.  The acquisition of the Oil Control Group and integration of its product range in its own enabled Bosch Rexroth to position itself as an even stronger player in the mobile machinery systems market, with products to cater for virtually every conceivable OEM need.

The Bosch Rexroth Oil Control valve range now includes:

  • mechanical cartridge valves, solenoid cartridge valves (on/off and electro-proportional) and high pressure cartridge valves (mechanical, solenoid on/off and) electro-proportional;
  • proportional pressure reducing valves – remote control manifolds;
  • sleeve valves for line mounting;
  • Oil Control insert valves;
  • Load holding/motion control valves;
  • Oil Control modular/directional valves;
  • Flow diverters.

Whether, like our customer here, you work within a major PLC or run your own small business, we understand the importance of increasing the value of your brand and staying a step ahead of your competition at every turn. We provide Original Equipment Manufacturers with whatever level of support they need to ensure that their products are well-positioned in the marketplace – from upfront hydraulic systems design consultancy, through to prototyping and pre-production manufacturing, or as an ongoing production and service parts provider.

With our competitive access to an extensive range of hydraulic equipment manufacturers from around the world, many of our customers choose to rationalise their supplier base and work with us as their single source of supply… allowing them to focus on their products, their customers, their markets.

So look no further… You can trust us with your design ideas and brand. You’re in safe hands.

Danfoss pump motors setsSauer Danfoss hydraulic equipment can also be used as a direct equivalent for other branded products. We were asked to quote for 8 Bosch Rexroth pump-motor sets, which, of course we did. But knowing the protracted lead time we also offered to quote on supplying an equivalent – Danfoss Series 90, 75 kw pump-motor sets with half the lead time. The customer ordered the Danfoss pump-motor sets (pictured) and, as we knew they would, they worked perfectly!

That is spot on! Thanks for all your help, its great knowing we have someone like you supporting us on  these types of  vehicles.

Thanks a lot, you are absolutely the best… The pumps arrived perfectly. We will be in contact soon and continue doing business together and do what we can to promote you here in Panama too.

Hydraulics

Without doubt, there is never a dull moment here at Hydraulics Online; the team’s love of hydraulics never even begins to tire, such is the constant stream of new customers, new applications and new projects that we are involved with each day. No two days are ever the same.

From around the corner to the other side of the world, from hobbyists and pleasure-seekers to big “household” names, and from engineers who needed a part “yesterday” to universities and research centres who are helping to define the future…  Our customers come from all walks of life and from all corners of the globe. Literally.

Some haven’t any knowledge about hydraulics, or only ever need hydraulics “once in a blue moon”, while others are passionate about hydraulic engineering and are looking for regular cost-effective and reliable supplies of known equipment.

We know our stuff…

Hydraulics Online have always been fast, friendly and competitive but we value them most because they are innovative and can find answers to the really tough problems.

2 bsi-iso-9001So, our technical team enjoy a reputation for consistently providing practical, trusted advice and solutions as far as hydraulics are concerned. That’s only right isn’t it? But, our ISO 9001 accreditation means that we walk the hydraulics talk too… and do what we say we’re going to do  – when we say we’re going to do it!

Can I thank you for your speedy service. The rig is operational and we will now meet tomorrow’s delivery requirement.

There are plenty more testimonials where these came from… But don’t just take our word for it - click through and see for yourself.

Back to our customers. It’s hard to think of an industry, market or corner of the world where we haven’t supplied hydraulics and designed systems. Our work to date spans: Agricultural and forestry, energy and power generation, other hydraulic engineering ”specialists”, manufacturing, industry and mining, marine and offshore, mobile hydraulicsoriginal equipment manufacturers and other specialist applications e.g. ATEX

lavenderHydraulics probably wouldn’t be your first thought if you were standing in a beautiful lavender field, but a new customer contacted the team looking for hydraulic systems design support to build a new piece of equipment – a ‘lavender lifter’ to de-head and harvest the flowers using bristle heads, much like a road sweeper, albeit much more gently! The team worked through the design and then quoted for a hydraulic motor with 50cc end ports, a 16mm flange and a 3/8″ BSP priority flow divider. It was dispatched the very next day.

Marine-Winch

Hydraulics are commonly found in marine and offshore equipment, and a well-established overseas hydraulic engineering company approached the team looking for a radial piston motor to replace an existing unit used on a marine winch system.  The original motor was obsolete, but it also had a non-standard shaft.

Marine WinchWorking from photos taken of the original unit, Hydraulics Online identified that an Italgroup (IAMD series) radial piston motor with a bespoke shaft was perfect for the job.

“Just to let you know how impressed I am with your service… Not only did you recognise the motor I needed where others had failed to do so, but you were able to despatch a replacement to me that same day.”

So, whoever you are, whatever you do (even if you’re Concorde, yes Concorde!) if you need hydraulics you’ve come to the right place!

Hydraulic Flow Control Valves

At Hydraulics Online, we understand the importance of increasing the value of your brand and product range to outperform the competition at every turn. We can provide you with whatever level of support you need to ensure that your product is well-positioned in the marketplace… which is exactly why original equipment manufacturers return to us again and again, considering us a part of their product development team.

A long-standing customer, an original equipment manufacturer who produces new and reconditioned forklift truck attachments, contacted the technical team with a request to design a bespoke unit for a new application that would minimise a number of valves into one, single block.

The team were able to design the bespoke flow control valve to suit the needs of the customer and tailored it specifically to their application. The exact unit (pictured here) is a bespoke dual priority flow control valve: 3/4”, 120 litres/minute, complete with checks, 210 bar.

To quote the happy customer; “We approached Hydraulics Online 18 months ago for assistance in the design and supply of bespoke hydraulic control systems. As a result of their vast technical knowledge and wide product range available, we were able to develop a system which was both competitively priced and completely tailored to suit our application.

Since our initial projects with Hydraulics Online, we have worked together to develop further systems to complement our product range, further heightening our position in the market place. They have also been a valuable technical partner assisting our engineering personnel on site with issues faced in the field. Overall, a valuable tool for any business.”

Testimonial: Agricultural Hydraulics

We don’t just chew the cud as far as agricultural hydraulics are concerned. Whether you are looking for replacement agricultural hydraulics, want to improve the performance of your existing equipment or have a design concept for a new agricultural machine that you would like to bring to life… then look no further. We can help.

But we would say that, wouldn’t we? Well, don’t just take our word for it, read on to see what a new agricultural customer (a long-established farming partnership, committed to animal welfare and offering organic, high-quality meat products) had to say after dealing with Hydraulics Online for the first time; they were simply over the “moooooon”:

The components have arrived and are currently sitting like a rather wonderful art display on our boardroom table.

You have been so efficient that our local engineers who are going to make the frame will lag behind by quite a bit. Therefore initial testing will be in late June.  I will keep you posted.

This is one of those things where it is quite possible that other farmers are going to say, “I could do with one of those.” A commercial opportunity may exist.

I look forward to hearing more about the post whacker options and have attached my original proposal concerning the partial automation of our cattle crush. Since you have experience with the cow tipper, I would be interested in your rough quote on this – it is a longer term project.

We couldn’t have hoped to put it better ourselves, but we have plenty more agriculture and forestry-related testimonials if you’re still not quite convinced.

Case Study: Hydraulic Power Packs for Specialist Vehicles

Supporting customers’ new product development activities and delivering tender-winning solutions is all in a day’s work for the technical team here at Hydraulics Online. Our philosophy is one of not just “taking orders”, unless that’s all that our customers want and need us to do. Instead, we make it our business to understand your business… only then can we be sure that we are supplying you with hydraulic equipment that really is “fit for purpose”. Unfortunately, not everyone shares this way of thinking.

A global specialist vehicle converter, contacted the technical team recently looking for support having been let down by their existing supplier. They had previously taken delivery of a hydraulic power pack that had been incorrectly specified and was simply not suitable for their application; their successful tender for a major new contract was at stake.

Having asked the “right” questions and gathered as much information as they could about the application and its operating parameters, the technical team proposed an alternative system and suggested some additional improvements and safety features that could be made to the design.

Within the week the customer received their hydraulic power pack and additional equipment, and shortly afterwards began to put it through its paces as the prototype platform lift of a commercial vehicle. It worked a treat. The customer then placed an additional order to to enable them to implement our earlier recommendations for additional systems improvements… and we are delighted to say that they won the tender!

So whether you are looking for a relatively standard hydraulic power pack, or a bespoke unit as part of a larger hydraulic systems design project then you’ve come to the right place. You can find out more about the different types of hydraulic power unit here or…

Case Study: Hydraulic Power Packs for OEMs

It’s a small world at Hydraulics Online – whether delivering our products to customers locally or to customers abroad, we can take the pressure!

We recently had an enquiry from an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in New Zealand; the company were looking for a hydraulic power pack manufacturer in the UK… to provide a quality, British product. The team at Hydraulics Online have a wealth of experience in building and supplying hydraulic power packs, so we knew exactly what design and specification would work best in the customer’s application (a single-acting, 12v DC hydraulic power pack with flow control) and were able to quote instantly. The customer requested a trial power pack, which we proceeded to build and ship the same day.

After being put through a period of very rigorous testing over a number of weeks, the power pack had more than proved itself… delivering the performance that our OEM was looking for as a key component within his product. As far as an OEM is concerned, having peace of mind and being able to “fit and forget” hydraulic components is clearly vital.

Single-acting 12v DC hydraulic power packWe’re delighted to say that a further ten hydraulic power packs were shipped to New Zealand last week, the first of many given that our hydraulic equipment is now an integral part of this OEM’s core product design…  Proof that here at Hydraulics Online, we really do understand the importance of increasing the value of an OEM’s brand and product range. Every project we work on is scrutinized to ensure a successful design and ongoing cost-effective manufacturing, using components that truly are “fit for purpose”.
