Hytech – Design Doubled

Hytech have doubled their design capabilities, and reduced their lead times.

Hytech welcomes to the team – Wendy Roberts – CAD Manifold Design Engineer.

Due to increased demand for Hydraulic manifolds, Hytech recruited Wendy as an additional designer to assist Steven Zhou with manifold designs at Hytech.

Wendy has been designing manifolds for 19 years since graduating from Coventry University in the UK with a bachelor of Mechanical Engineering. Wendy worked for UK based family business Integrated Hydraulics for 15 years (this business was bought out by Eaton), she then moved on to Hydraforce (UK) for 4 years before joining Hytech April 2015.

Hytech have been looking for ways to reduce turnaround for the manufacture of their Hydraulic Manifolds.

This review has involved

  • Matching jobs with similar settings to reduce setting times
  • Tracking setting times
  • Tracking machine hours
  • Looking at the features of the CNC machines to get the most out of these machine
  • Repeat orders can now be managed much more quickly
  • Improved finishing with Nicol plating on all manifolds. The thickness of the plating customised to suit different working environments for longer life.
  • Working towards ISO 9000 acreditation to ensure consistency and quality of products

The results of this continual review process have been

  • Improved turn around in design
  • Increased machine time
  • Improved turn around in production

If you have a circuit design you can go direct to Hytech to talk about making this into a manifold. Ask for Production Manager – Paul Harmse on 09 921 2221.

If you have an idea of what you want but not the expertise to deliver a circuit diagram, contact Hytech who can liaise with a Hydraulic Engineer.
