Oilgear has built a reputation upon the superior engineering and unbeatable reliability of our solutions. As a result, our modular and integrated manifold systems are in use worldwide for a wide variety of different applications.
Our understanding of manifold design and manufacturing has allowed Oilgear to innovate many essential advantages such as reduced size, weight, and cost. Our high quality and reliable systems provide a clean and leak free solution to our customers’ most challenging control system problems. By using the latest available software modeling techniques you can trust that your manifold will exceed your expectations, no matter how big or how small.
When you purchase a manifold from Oilgear, you are getting the experience and dedication of thousands of engineering, design, and testing hours from the country’s best and brightest engineers. Our specialization in the manufacture and design of hydraulic automation and components has given us the knowledge required to make any application more efficient. However, our most important company-wide mission is our flexibility to your application.
Our engineering team uses the latest tools such as Solid Works and PDM Works to design and analyze each new application to maximize block utilization and reduce system pipe runs.
Oilgear has manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Europe, China and India to supply manifolds anywhere in the world. We can provide small single-function units or manifolds weighing up to 50 tons. All manifolds are assembled and tested in our facilities.

The Oilgear manifold is a hydraulic component. Its role is to regulate the fluid flow between pumps, actuators and other components. It is similar to a switchboard in an electrical circuit, because it allows the operator to control the quantity of fluid flows between components of hydraulic machines.
Oilgear modular and integrated manifolds simplify maintenance and reduce fluid leakage. Modular type manifolds can be mounted horizontally or vertically to satisfy circuit needs.
Oilgear makes manifold blocks, which can weigh more than 40 tons, mainly for large industrial applications that require high power. The fluid can be water or mineral oil.
For more demanding applications, Oilgear's high strength steel integrated manifolds withstand extreme operation pressure and allow higher throughput rates with minimal pressure drops.
Years of experience designing and manufacturing manifolds has helped Oilgear to be able to pass on many advantages such as reduced size, weight and cost to our customers. Our high quality systems provide a cleaner, leak free and more reliable solution to our customers’ most challenging control system problems.
