UK-based Domin has developed a new range of state-of-the-art servo valves.
Supported by metal additive manufacturing technology from global engineering company Renishaw the company has produced a high-performance servo valve.
Domin, based in Bristol, was founded in 2012 and aims to disrupt the fluid power industry by improving the range of technology available and increasing sustainability.
“There is a pressing reason disruption is needed — sustainability. In the US, the fluid power sector alone wastes about 300 million tonnes of CO2 per year through system inefficiencies,” explained Marcus Pont, CEO of Domin. "To put this into context, this is about the same as the total output for all CO2 emissions in the UK. More efficient technology could make a real difference to global emissions.”
“Britain is home to some of the world’s leading engineering businesses,” he added. “However, most of the UK’s big engineering businesses were started in the 20th century. It’s time for British business to become more ambitious. Combining metal additive manufacturing with other technologies revolutionises what can be achieved technically — it could generate real value for British industry.”
“Additive manufacturing is proving to be a key enabler in many markets,” added Bryan Austin, director of sales, additive manufacturing group at Renishaw. “The productivity that Renishaw’s technology enables means metal 3D printing is broadening into markets where it was previously uneconomical. Domin has showcased how AM can be used to make products better, faster and cheaper than traditional manufacturing would allow.”
