From Blueprint to Reality: Building Effective Hydraulic Systems

Hydraulic System

Traditional centralised hydraulic systems are heavy and inefficient. They are built with a number of different components, meaning that energy is wasted and efficiencies are throttled. At Domin, we have revolutionised the way hydraulic systems are built, making them much more efficient. In this article, we are going to explore how we build our hydraulic […]

What is the Importance of the Spool in a Hydraulic Servo Valve?

Hydraulic servo valves are used for a wide range of precision control applications found in the automotive, aerospace, and general manufacturing industries. Apart from the actual servo mechanism, the spool component in these valves is key to the effective operation of the valve. What is a Spool? A “spool” is a cylindrical component inside a […]
