Customization is our Specialty
Thursday, November 17, 2016
Did you know that Air-Way Manufacturing owns and controls its entire manufacturing process? Unlike many hydraulic fitting and adapter manufacturers out there today, we design, produce, and assemble our products in-house for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and distributors worldwide.
While this may not seem like a big deal, it is. Here are some of the benefits our customers can count on:
Hydraulic Fitting Customization
By owning the manufacturing process, we are able to easily develop and manufacture custom hydraulic fittings and adapters based on the specific needs of customers. While our customers already count on an extensive inventory of products on hand, sometimes they just can’t find the right solution. We understand and have a history of designing fittings for one-of-a-kind sizes and configurations for a multitude of hydraulic applications.
Ownership of the manufacturing process means that our tool design and production remains in-house. As part of the customization process, clients often turn to our technical engineers who can offer customers the support and expertise required to manufacture a high-quality hydraulic fitting. Our engineers work collaboratively with OEM product managers and engineers to design fittings that are compatible with their hydraulic applications and are tested to ensure quality. With decades of experience under our belt, we take challenges in stride and have an arsenal of knowledge available to us. Together, we can find a customized solution to any hydraulic fitting issue.
By owning the manufacturing process, clients receive rapid prototypes, get valuable information to their teams faster and receive parts quickly ensuring that production is on schedule. By manufacturing parts ourselves from start to finish, we are able to compress your overall timeline, resulting in increased efficiency and savings.
As the largest independent manufacturer of hydraulic fittings in the United States, we pride ourselves on our ability to work closely with leaders in a variety of industries on hydraulic fitting customization and production. Owning the manufacturing process from the beginning allows us to provide an enhanced level of customer service and work collaboratively towards hydraulic application solutions that distributors and other manufacturers simply cannot do.
COVID-19 PREPAREDNESS & RESPONSE PLANThe purpose of this Plan is to communicate and outline Air-Way’s safety protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic. This Plan will be in effect until further notice. This Plan will be guided by recommendations from the CDC, OSHA, and federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations and orders. This Plan will be available to employees on the ADP portal site, the Company website, and hard copy if requested.
Introducing 3D CAD Models Available Online by Part #We’re pleased to announce that CAD 3D component models are available on our website for thousands of our parts. These Solidworks Models are animated to show the features, properties, functionality, mechanics, size, and structure. Not only are the surface features, edges, and orientations of the stock hydraulic adapters represented, but the entire body of the fitting can be sliced for a cross-section view.
Air-Way’s U.S. Based Hydraulic Fitting Manufacturing Keeps Your Operation MovingIf it lifts, moves or operates under hydraulic power, Air-Way Global Manufacturing is there. Although there have been changes to how we work, just like the hydraulic operations we help power every day, we haven’t missed a beat. With U.S. based manufacturing capabilities for our hydraulic fittings, Air-Way has continued to supply top Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and Distribution serving the essential critical infrastructure sectors.
