INTEGRATED MANIFOLD SOLUTIONS
Daman is streamlining the supply chain
Our Daman Trigger System, offering 24-hour delivery for custom manifolds, has led to further understanding of our distributors' needs to increase their speed to market. This has evolved our services to include the sourcing, assembly, testing and drop shipping of custom manifold assemblies. Daman offers these integrated solutions with valves and filter cartridges, and in a variety of different materials – ductile, aluminum, stainless steel, and carbon steel.
By sourcing components directly from valve manufacturers and completing the manifold assembly at our factory in Mishawaka, we are able to reduce supply chain delays for distributors. We have also partnered with nearly 50 major valve manufacturers to inventory over 750 cartridge cavity tools for quick turnaround of integrated solutions.
Evolution of a Manifold Solution
Daman Products proves that 21st-century design and manufacturing efficiencies make it easier than ever to source one-piece Hydraulic Integrated Circuit (HIC) Custom Manifold Solutions that reduce costs and leak points. Today's fluid power standard solutions can be designed as custom engineered solutions—reducing labor hours, leak points, number of components, and overall costs.

Integrated Filter Cartridges
Traditionally, providing a filter to a hydraulic system has meant adding a filter housing as a loose component, not installed in the main manifold system. This separation of parts has resulted in excessive plumbing labor and leak points for distributors and their customers, as well as providing a bulky, costly product.
With Daman’s Integrated Filter Cartridge solution, we are now able to:
reduce assembly time with fewer components,
reduce leak points,
offer a more compact design,
improve field maintenance serviceability,
decrease our hydraulic component footprint, and
eliminate long lead times.
Logic Valve Cavities
We work with distributors to integrate their valve inventory into our logic valve cavities. To assure accurate manufacturing of logic valve body designs, we have dedicated tooling for eight different valve sizes. Our vast array of manufacturing and assembly capabilities offers a variety of 2-way and 3-way cavity body sizes, but we can custom design and manufacture any additional sizes.
