In general there are three possible designs for hydraulic manifolds. In Industry the most common design is the CETOP construction. In mobile technology or in case of medium quantities screw in cartridge technology is often used. In case of medium to high quantity demand special customized parts-in-body-design is beneficial.
Advantages of Parts-in-Body-Design
The advantages of parts-in-body design are shown in the following enumeration.
Valves integrated directly in the hydraulic block
material savings & efficient layout
Different valves can be realized (relief, check & directional control valves)
