Design of an additively manufactured hydraulic directional spool valve

In close collaboration with Wandfluh AG and inspire AG, we developed two sizes of an additively manufactured hydraulic spool valve which exploit the design freedom of the laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) process. Compared to the conventionally manufactured valve, the pressure drop was reduced by 60%.
