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.
Industries that Benefit from Stainless Steel Hydraulic Fittings & AdaptersStainless steel adapters and hydraulic fittings offer machine manufacturers multiple advantages over standard steel and plastic options. While stainless can be challenging to machine, oftentimes, it is the right or only solution, and Air-Way has the experience.
Reaching New Heights: Supplying Parts for NASA’s Telescope Quickly and EfficientlyLocated on Ascension Island, about halfway between South America and Africa in the Southern Atlantic Ocean, NASA’s 20-thousand-pound Meter Class Autonomous Telescope (MCAT) hunts the sky for space debris. The telescope is part of the ARES Division’s Orbital Debris Program Office, whose mission is to determine the total amount of orbital debris and predict the risk it poses to spacecraft, including the International Space Station.
Custom Hydraulic Fittings: The Right Hydraulic Fitting for Your ApplicationA custom hydraulic fitting solution can ensure you have the right concept, design, and material for a perfect solution. Without the right hydraulic system connections, machinery will not work effectively or efficiently to provide the desired result. Sometimes, the only way to ensure a proper fit for your application is with a custom hydraulic fitting solution from Air-Way Global Manufacturing.
