Finding the Flow: From Prototype To Series Production

For the past 25 years, our engineers have worked with automotive, off-road and industrial customers to turn hydraulic control valve concepts into reality. More recently, we prototyped, developed flow testing and mass-produced a control valve for a braking system in a hybrid vehicle. The sleeve-spool matched sets had a target diametrical clearance of 2-5 microns,…
