Since 1976, GK Machine’s goal has been to create exceptional value for our customers by focusing on the design and manufacturing of quality equipment. The combination of progressive engineering, lean manufacturing with advanced software and highly automated CNC machining helps GK Machine meet and exceed our customer's expectations.
GK Machine now provides high quality custom manifold solutions to our mix of exceptional products and services. Our precision manufacturing process ensures your custom manifold will be built to your exact measurements and specifications. We design and manufacture custom hydraulic manifolds to fit any line of cartridge valves as required by our customers. Our customers know the importance of meticulous engineering, exceptional value and unmatched customer service.
A complex matrix of variables can make manifold design and component selection a difficult and tedious job. Developing a custom hydraulic manifold application is not the same as buying an item off the shelf. A custom manifold is built to your exact measurements and specifications. GK Machine has engineers on staff to help you design your manifold from scratch, improve an existing design, or replicate an existing circuit. Using advanced software our engineers will assist you with the design and produce a manifold solution for your exact specifications.
Custom Manifold Process
From conception to completion, GK Machine is prepared and equipped to help you realize your manifold concepts.
Quoting: Using specialized software, we strive to provide quick, consistent, and competitive quotes. Whether you have a full 3D model or a rough sketch, our sales department will work closely with you to outline a project that satisfies your specifications and your budget.
Engineering: The strength of GK Machine lies in our commitment to engineering. Working with advanced software, our engineers specialize in both the modification of existing circuits and the design of new hydraulic manifolds. The highly skilled engineers at GK Machine have years of experience and are familiar with the challenges of custom manifold design.
Programming: Once the design has been finalized, our programmers get to work. Utilizing advanced software they program the machining of your manifold using the most efficient and effective methods possible.
Machining: GK Machine employs many talented machinists with many years of combined experience in manufacturing. Our machinists enjoy the challenges of working on new and unique projects and have the ability to work with a wide variety of materials. Our machinists operate technologically advanced CNC machines to produce your manifolds quickly and accurately.
Operations: After the machining of the manifold is complete, we inspect, clean, de-burr, assemble plugs and other components, and any additional procedures as directed by our customers. The accurate and consistent execution of these measures is critical to the smooth operation of the manifolds in the field. Our goal is to manufacture and ship clean and contamination free manifolds. The result is less maintenance cost and lost production time for all GK Machine manifold systems.
