Metal 3D Printed Hydraulic Manifold Ag. Machinery
Beside its traditional production of hydraulic component and blocks, Aidro has introduced Additive Manufacturing to produce innovative hydraulic manifolds to take advantage of the benefits of 3D printing, such as lightweight, space saving, complex forms, and integration of sensor that allows the predictive maintenance.
In the photo, a comparison between the traditional Aidro manifold for mobile application and a redesigned version produced with a metal 3D printer machine. This manifold has exactly the same function as his predecessor : it controls a doubled acting cylinder with two solenoids valves and two pilot operated check valves.
