At Daman Products, we know better system design starts with a manifold. Our Standard Product Catalog may include more than 1 million parts, but we understand many companies have systems with unique fluid power needs that require custom solutions. We offer custom design and manufacturing services for hydraulic and pneumatic manifolds made of ductile iron, aluminum, stainless steel, and brass.
Whether you have a computer-generated circuit and bill of materials, a freehand schematic or construction drawing, we will distill the appropriate information into a design for an efficient, highly functional product that meets your specifications for replicated or prototype manifold solutions.
We process more than 150-200 Custom Manifold quotations every week. Custom Manifolds comprise 65 percent of our production.
Fast turnaround for quotations and finished products
Our goal is to process quotations in 24 - 48 hours, depending on completeness of information provided and type of special tooling/material requirements. To start the Custom Manifold quote process, please submit a completed Custom RFQ Checklist along with all any files necessary to answer the checklist requirements.
Custom Manifold shipping in 24 hours with the Daman Trigger System
Our unique Trigger System allows us to bring the proven reliability of our standard product fulfillment systems with 24-hour shipping to repetitive custom projects. Once programming, processing, tooling and fixturing are established by our design and manufacturing teams, your custom manifold is treated the same as a standard product—allowing us to ship your repetitive custom product on-demand within 24-hours.
Once a product is set up in the Trigger Program, there is no need to worry about tracking your inventory or submitting purchase orders in advance. Your current forecasting and ordering processes can be reduced to simple quarterly conversations about expected and maximum usage.
Based on these conversations, we will maintain a small inventory of your Custom Manifold. As you place orders, we will automatically refill the inventory, ensuring that there is always enough custom product available to meet your needs while limiting your financial commitment to the minimal product quantity inventoried.
With the ability to order Custom Manifolds when you need them and receive products quickly, you can reduce supply chain inventory commitments by 90 percent and eliminate problems caused by fluctuating delivery schedules, while retaining the ability to quickly respond to changes in demand.
