Sun Hydraulics, Sarasota, Fla., a manufacturer of hydraulic cartridge valves, now offers Sun QuickDesign — a free, Web-based tool that creates custom manifold designs without having to download software. The tool is complete with manifold drawings, drill lists, connection lists, and 2D/3D CAD files. It works with circuits containing up to 12 cartridges and allows you to select the faces you want to place features and components on. Additionally, it offers the benefits of an integrated package. After the user designs a product, cost-saving incentives to ordering are offered. The Sun QuickDesign tool also generates a single part number, which simplifies ordering tracking, and future needs.

Signing up is easy; only a username and password are required to access the automated tool. User activities will be visible to the local Sun distributors so they can assist you with questions, selection, and ordering.
