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).
Can I Reassemble or Do I Need to Replace My Hydraulic Fitting?Performing regular maintenance on your hydraulic system can prevent problems and maximize uptime. When your maintenance involves hose changes or disassembly of your hydraulic fittings, it’s a good idea to consider using new fittings when you reassemble your connections. But, thanks to stronger materials and advances in the design and manufacturing process, hydraulic fittings that are in working order may be reused.
Challenges in the Supply Chain Due to COVID-19 and What You Can Do About It TodayNearly every industry has been impacted by supply chain issues during the COVID-19 pandemic. Manufacturing, construction, and retail trade have experienced the most significant disruption in their supply chains, and many continue to feel that pain yet today. So much so, that in June of 2021, the White House announced the formation of a Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force to address short term supply chain issues nationally.
Growth in Hydraulic Hose and Fitting Market Driven by Industry MechanizationThe global hydraulic hose and fittings market is expected to grow by almost $400 million ISD over the next four years according to research by Technavio, a leading global technology research and advisory company. A major factor in the growth in the hydraulics market is mechanization in the agriculture industry.
