Guide to CNC Machined Precision High Quality Hydraulic Valves

High quality hydraulic valve machined by CNC precision cnc

Hydraulic systems basically use fluids in pushing tools. Therefore, they can be used for repetitive and continuous tasks. In addition, hydraulic systems can locate, move and lift heavy objects such as raw materials and mechanical components. As such, they form an important part of the manufacturing, construction, infrastructure and vehicle industries. Hydraulic systems include complex precision machined parts. For example, control valves distribute hydraulic fluid directly through pipes and hoses. These control valves include a valve, a sleeve and a valve body.

At Concord, we use precision CNC machining to manufacture parts to precise tolerances and requirements. Here's a closer look at the precision machining process and why it's ideal for your hydraulic system needs.

How to use the CNC machining process of hydraulic valve?

Precision machining process details Hydraulic valve

Modern cutting-edge finished parts are a great fit. It can hold most raw materials such as aluminium, stainless steel, bronze and copper. We use CNC to manufacture first-class parts that make up hydraulic systems. The process utilizes computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and computer-aided design programs. It also uses process programs such as ProE and UG. These programs create the microscopic detail blueprints that are critical to producing accurate parts. Some examples of precision machining processes include CNC machining, precision honing, and hard turning. Others include high precision grinding, deburring and heat treatment.

The advantages of precision CNC machining

First, it provides operational efficiency. CNC machining can run automatically at high speed without the need for a supervisor, therefore, it allows us to reduce production costs and put more effort into optimizing efficiency. CNC machines follow CAD-generated drawings to infer and execute exact details.

Secondly, it ensures low material waste. Since machining is a subtractive production method, any mistakes will result in wasted material. CNC machines reduce this waste by requiring less raw material to make precise cuts.

Third, it allows for easier prototype testing. Machining hydraulic valve body prototypes requires extensive testing to ensure they are working properly. Since CNC machining is a precise process, it is more flexible and can be adapted to the stage of product creation. Furthermore, it allows us to explore market niches with growth potential.

Which hydraulic system parts are suitable for CNC machining?

Precision CNC machining allows us to provide first-class metal parts that make up complex hydraulic systems, which require several complex components to function properly. We specialize in supplying these parts to a wide range of industry leaders, and here is a highlight of key hydraulic system valve components.

Control valve

One of these components is the control valve, which determines the opening and closing of the entire hydraulic system. This allows fluid to flow through the entire system, and automatic control valves rely on pneumatic, electric and hydraulic actuators to open and close the system. This usually depends on the programmed volume and velocity of the flowing fluid.

Slide valve

The other part is the spool valve, which can slide or rotate. Spool valves are used to direct fluid in and out of other valves within the hydraulic system. It consists of a rotating X-shaped magnetic core located within a slotted spool or plastic sleeve that typically slides into and out of position within the sleeve to allow or prevent fluid flow.

Piston pump

Another important part of the hydraulic system is the piston pump that moves and pressurizes the hydraulic fluid. It does this by using one or more opposing pistons in a cylinder, and an electric motor drives it through a connecting rod and crankshaft.

O-ring seal

Additionally, piston pumps contain at least one peripheral O-ring. The O-ring seals the cylinder as the piston moves. Hose sleeves are also an important part of hydraulic systems. Their job is to extend the life of the machine by preventing any kinks and bending. They also protect against external wear and damage when we wrap them in rubber and synthetic fluids. It comes in three main types namely nylon, spring and flat.

Valve body

Finally, we have the valve body that constitutes the monolithic structure or housing, which acts to enclose all valve components including the transmission valve. We manufacture various materials such as cast iron, brass, stainless steel, bronze and alloys.

Precision CNC machining is undoubtedly the most reliable method for long-term production of hydraulic valve parts. It ensures consistent production of parts within the system, minimizing waste and inefficiencies. Concord is known for manufacturing top-notch, high-complexity machined parts. Our integrated manufacturing processes and business models include turning, grinding, drilling, heat treating and deburring.
