While hydraulic manifolds can be manufactured in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, their function remains the same: directing fluid flow within a closed-loop system. Miller CNC can manufacture hydraulic manifolds ranging from small, simple components with a few ports up to large components with dozens of ports and complex geometries.
Hydraulic manifolds can be manufactured with easy-to-machine materials like aluminum or difficult-to-machine materials such as Inconel, Titanium, or Stainless Steel. Manifolds may contain tight GD&T dimensioning, fine surface finishes, complex geometries, and tight tolerance bores. These specifications often require complicated post-processing such as precision cleaning, penetrant inspection and plating including detailed masking.
When manufacturing hydraulic manifolds, deburring also plays a crucial role. Burrs are normally generated by the cutting tools during the manifold manufacturing process and while a burr may not appear to be a glaring issue, if the burr works itself loose, it can cause many problems. FOD (foreign object debris) can cause system failure which is why deburring remains a critical function of the hydraulic manifold manufacturing process and something you can count on Miller CNC to take care of properly.
Our hydraulic manifold capabilities include machining manifolds from bar/plate or forgings/castings. Due to our strong 5-Axis Milling capabilities, we can quickly set up manifolds and complete nearly any component in 2 setups regardless of geometry. This provides an efficient machining process versus having to create specialized fixturing for multiple machine operations.
3D printed components are becoming increasingly common due to the geometric freedom afforded by 3D technology. We also have the capability to finish machine 3D printed hydraulic manifolds.
