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.

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!

Testimonial: Major UK Airport

Please thank all your staff for the parts we received from yourselves. We have a wide range of equipment, some of which is pretty old, and to be able to speak with someone who knew their stuff and knew our requirements was invaluable.The seal kits we required were from a valve block fitted to an old forklift (1998)… and to receive them two days later was excellent.

We sometimes struggle with manufacturers, some parts are not available anymore so we try and source by component type and manufacturers of the parts fitted to our equipment, and as we are an airport downtime is a big issue. Finding yourselves online was a big bonus for us!

Once again thanks for all your help!

The Customer: Household Name Distribution Company

The Task: Hydraulics Online were asked to identify an unmarked hydraulic power pack / hydraulic power unit and to specify a new, more efficient and cost-effective solution

The Solution: Hydraulics Online successfully submitted their proposed specification and quotation. The hydraulic power packs / hydraulic power units were subsequently built and delivered within the customer’s required shutdown / maintenance period and all are now installed and working in a busy distribution depot.

Testimonial: End of Life Vehicle Operators

Subject: Well Impressed

A quick email to say a big “thank you” for a brilliant service. After many phone calls to leading local hydraulic companies to no avail, I decided to look on the internet and found your company. One phone call and a couple of photos and you knew exactly what we needed.

A well-impressive, friendly service and I will be contacting you in the future for all our hydraulic requirements.

Once again, many thanks.

Testimonial: Vehicle Breakdown Recovery Company

Just to let you know how impressed I am with your service. Not only did you recognise the hydraulic motor I needed, where others had failed to, but you were able to despatch a replacement to me incredibly quickly; I didn’t phone you until 5pm and yet still received my new motor by 9am next day. Our vehicle was back on the road by 10am! I look forward to giving you much more business in the future.
