About Manifolds

Simply put, a hydraulic manifold is used to distribute hydraulic oil throughout a circuit.  The flow of pressurized oil is regulated by hydraulic valves installed within the manifold and directed through hoses to some kind of work device, such as a hydraulic motor or a cylinder.

The manifold is the brain of the hydraulic system telling everything else what to do.  Like a brain, a hydraulic manifold is complicated but powerful.  A complex matrix of variables can make manifold design and component selection a difficult and tedious job.  M&W has years of experience in the planning and production of these complicated systems.  Let us do the hard work and help to guide you through the development of your hydraulic manifold.  Contact us or request a quote today.
