Introducing 3D CAD Models for Air-Way Global Manufacturing Hydraulic Fittings
- What if you could decrease the risk of expensive production mistakes and issues?
- What if you could give more attention to minute details and product innovation?
- What if you could fully realize your product end result before you begin production?
Solidworks CAD 3D models provide you with an accurate, 360 real-view of Air-Way hydraulic fittings and adapters before you purchase stock hydraulic fittings or begin manufacturing a custom hydraulic component. Our 3D models allow you determine with confidence which hydraulic adapter is going to be the best solution for your application.
Informed Hydraulic Fitting Decisions
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. With the interactive 3D model, you can choose what part of the component you’d like to see. Easily zoom in and out, rotate the object, and view a line drawing. Additionally, you can picture how your components will behave under various conditions and operating situations so you can adjust your hydraulic system design or product requirements accordingly.
This powerful information fosters better collaboration and communication between machinery OEM’s and our Product Engineers. When manufacturing a custom hydraulic fitting, 3D modeling technology helps streamline the design and development process.
In addition, we have provided the ability to download the models into most CAD formats, which allows designers to “plug them into” their designs, and perform virtual fit up activities.
Whether your fitting is custom or stock, you can make faster, more informed decisions about the hydraulic fittings and hydraulic components you need for a successful end result.
We continue to add models for parts numbers daily, focusing on the most popular and standard parts. If the model is not available on the website for the part you are looking for, simply contact Air-Way Engineering. We will generate the model and get it to you quickly.
3D Modeling and Rendering Improves Processes
Incorporating 3D models makes the product design process more efficient. Engineering and manufacturing resources aren’t spent making endless exploratory prototype units. We can dedicate more time to product innovation and quality, which results in bringing better products to market faster. Challenges can be detected early and our engineers and designers can quickly solve issues in a cost-effective manner.
Solidworks is an efficient and robust system for designing 3D systems that delivers premier 3D CAD models and renders quickly and easily.

- Simply go to the adapater category, click on the type, and click into the part number to see the 3D Model (if available) and drawing.
You can always contact us to learn about our rapid prototyping for custom hydraulic fittings and adapters, or get a Solidworks Model that may not be listed on the website (yet).
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.
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.
Coronavirus Response For CustomersWe remain staffed and in production at all locations, both US and China, including our Edgerton, Ohio, facility. Air-Way supplies Original Equipment Manufacturers in the Agriculture, Construction, Fire and Rescue, Defense, Access Equipment, and Material Handling industries to name a few. Several of our largest customers have been classified as “Essential Critical Infrastructure”. As an integral supplier to these companies, Air-Way will continue operations at all of our facilities with as little disruption as possible.
