Hydraulic hoses are widely used in various industries, we often see such as: loaders, excavators, road rollers, forklifts, hydraulic cranes, hydraulic lifts, concrete pump truck, shearer, injection molding machine, blow molding machine And so on equipment will use a lot of high-pressure tubing, hydraulic tubing into the hydraulic system as the most critical part of the device. Its use and use of equipment directly related to the use of safety and life expectancy.
Here, we first look at the world's most important, but also the top hydraulic hose manufacturers.
Manuli - Italy is a multinational company, founded in 1937 and headquartered in Milan, Italy, has 27 global subsidiaries. There are two companies and four branches in China. High pressure hose only on the market share and brand awareness, is currently the world's first.
With 70 years of manufacturing experience, Manuli Group designs, manufactures and markets hydraulic and oil, marine equipment, fluid handling rubber, metal pipe fittings and hydraulic systems. In all parts of the world have sales network and production facilities.
Manuli (China) Company was founded in 2004 and headquartered in Suzhou. Mainly including the hose production, hose assembly production and joint production of three factories, administered a branch office and four offices only.
As the second production base of the group in the world, the factory in China can reach an annual output of 40 million meters hoses. Its products not only meet the customers' needs in China, but also sell back to the Asia Pacific region and the European market. The entire company's products are in full accordance with and exceed international standards and national standards, in order to maximize the quality of products to ensure the safety of users.
Manuli and diversity run counter to the company, with great concentration on research and development of their own main business, which may be the secret of his success, in fierce competition today, he can still stand the highest ...
Parker Hannifin Corporation is a world-class company that manufactures components and systems for controlling the movement, flow and pressure of a wide range of machinery and other equipment. Parker is the only manufacturer who can offer his customers the choice of hydraulic, pneumatic, mechatronic and computer motion control solutions.
Parker is a diversified multinational group focused on the following areas: Aerospace, Environmental Control, Electromechanical, Filtration, Fluid and Gas Processing, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Process Control, Sealing and Shielding. In the orbiting satellites, machine tools, construction machinery, oil rigs and refineries, hospitals and laboratories ... In short, Parker's products are found on any machine that depends on motion or fluid control.
Hydraulic Group is one of its branches providing hydraulic components. Specially designed, manufactured and marketed a full range of products for a wide range of hydraulic systems for motion and control.
Parker's hose business started in 1948 with a focus on the high-end market. Its main businesses include hydraulic hoses, hose fittings, mining hoses, industrial hoses, oil / gas pipes, hose equipment and more. Parker's one-piece fittings are a major breakthrough in the industry, with most suppliers using split fittings. In the early 1970s, Parker proposed a non-stripping concept, developed it and applied it in its own right Product. This is a kind of "fool-like" withhold technology, user-friendly. This technology has been retained until today, but its competitors did not follow suit, thus forming two standards in the market. Perhaps we can understand that this technology can not be mastered overnight, Parker had originally invested long-term energy development success, it is difficult for competitors to imitate.
According to Parker's strength and product visibility, we can think so, the industry's "Big Brother" he deserved, but if only for the hydraulic hose in this part of the business, he compared to Manuli, there should be a distance. But we have to admire: Parker's diversification is very successful, his product line is very wide and long ...
Eaton is also a very successful case for diversification and deserves to be studied ...
Eaton, headquartered in Ohio, USA, was founded in 1911 as a global cross-industry manufacturer. With over 40,000 products sold in over 100 countries around the world, the company achieved sales of 8.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2003 and ranks 253th in the top 500 FORTUNE companies in the United States. In the hydraulic system, power quality, transmission and control; car engine aerodynamic management and fuel economy in the field have a strong strength.
Eaton Products Learn: Electrical Products, Hydraulic Products, Aerospace Products, Truck Parts, Automotive Components, Filtering Products, Golf Gloves. Here we only know about his hydraulic products.
Eaton hydraulic products include: cylinder, pump valves, motors, filters, fluid connections, power units. The high pressure hose is part of the fluid connection. The secret to Eaton's success lies in industry mergers and acquisitions. Every year, his think tank looks for companies with specific growth potential in the world, and then "takes it as it is" through cash purchase or share purchase. After years of hard work, Eaton has developed into a multinational group today. Eaton's hose is not produced by himself, unlike Manuli and Parker. In 1999, Eaton acquired Aeroquip-Vickers, a maker of mechanical plumbing and equipment. This is a German company, which was already a little known in the industry and it sold even more with the fast train from Eaton. Currently, the company still supplies high-pressure hose to Eaton customers worldwide.
Under pressure from cost and competition, Eaton acquired a Singapore-based unit in succession in recent years where it started production of the Aeroquip line and acquired a business in Turkey to produce SEL low-end hoses.
For hydraulic hoses, AQ fame is far greater than Eaton because everyone is still using the name Aeroquip. We have reason to believe that the global top three hose suppliers none other than the three, as to who is a big brother, who is a brother? Own comment, let's not matter ...
It is also an Italian company that produces high-pressure tubing and can be used in many industries.
Sunway is also an Italian company that produces and sells industrial tubes.
Goodyear is a US company, is a well-known tire business, the other part of the business mainly related to industrial hose.
Yokohama, is a Japanese brand, well-known tire company, part of the business mainly for high-pressure hose, the brand sales in Taiwan is very good, there are domestic customers.
Bridgestone, is a Japanese brand, a well-known tire company, part of the main business for the high-pressure hose, the brand sales in Taiwan is very good, there are domestic customers.
Gates, the American company, is famous for producing high quality leather belts in the world. In recent years, it has been involved in the rubber hose industry. At its factory in Changzhou, Jiangsu Province, its products infiltrated into construction machinery and ship equipment.
Dunlop, the famous tire company, also involved in the field of high pressure tubing in recent years.
ContiTech, the famous tire company, involved in the hose industry earlier, the advantage of the product is double resin pipe, the product is currently the market leader.
Shenyang Rubber IV, parker and Shenyang Rubber Factory four joint ventures, are domestic brands, good quality, occupy part of the low-end market.
Sui Tian, Guangzhou Tianhe hose factory production, domestic brands, good quality, in the domestic forklift, loader occupy part of the low-end market.
Yatai, Hebei Hengshui Yatai, private-owned, good quality, mainly to export, mainly for Europe and the United States, Russia and other countries, belong to the low-end products.
In general, most of the hoses in the middle and high-end markets are now occupied by imported brands. Although domestic brands have made great strides in recent years, it will take some time to replace the imported products. Although the domestic hose in sufficient price advantage, but we can see that the choice of imported hose customers are still abound.
