More than just a component supplier.
To us, nothing is more important than effective solutions.
Our design process covers tasks as simple as finding the mounting points for a Stabilus gas spring that assists in opening and closing a heavy cab door, or sizing a DC hydraulic power unit to lift and level your RV, and tasks as advanced as programming a Parker IQAN Electro-hydraulic control system to communicate with your diesel engine and provide complete control to your mobile compactor. Our engineers can design your system from scratch based upon your ideas, or can confirm your original design concepts through calculations, simulations, breadboard, and bench testing. Van-Tech engineers can turn around custom hydraulic manifolds designs in as little as 24 hours. Hy-Draw, MD-Tools and Solid Works software allow for quick delivery of 2-D assembly and 3-D solid models of your design.
Knowing where and when to apply the proper hydraulic and electronic components sets Van-Tech apart from our competitors. Component selection is vital to the success of your system design. We pride ourselves on knowing how to select and evaluate physical system variables like pressure, flow, temperature, speed, torque, and acceleration to select top quality components, and make your machine perform at its maximum.
At Van-Tech, we believe in testing! You will often hear our sales and engineer professionals ask “What is the gauge pressure reading?” or “How much time does it take to raise or lower the cylinder?” The answers to these types of questions are essential to diagnosing and solving problems. Our first step to developing a more efficient and lower-cost hydraulic or electronic control system is to fit your existing machine with one of our Parker Senso-Controls data acquisition systems and gather the essential baseline data. Once we design your new system, we perform thorough testing on our test bench and, more importantly, on your machine. The process of testing each component or system helps us identify any concerns that may occur, and address them before they become problems.
The testing process flows directly into the system implementation process. Our team makes sure your system is started up correctly, preventing damage to components like pumps and motors, and ensuring that the system operates efficiently and accurately. Van-Tech provides on-site and phone assistance when starting up new systems in the prototype or production phase. You can rely on our experience to assist and educate you in implementing the proper start-up and adjustment procedures.
In addition to our sales and engineering services, we employ educated and experienced professionals who provide technical support for the products we sell. We not only deliver the components and systems that you need on-time, but also follow up to make sure you and your customer are completely satisfied with the services we provide. Van-Tech can inventory the parts, components and sub-systems for your OEM machine. Our team designs, builds, and tests custom hydraulic integrated circuit manifolds, custom hose and fittings kits, and complete electronics packages including wire harnesses, sensors, joysticks, and controllers.
