Brass Fittings

Hose connections and strong valves are at the core of what keep job sites running. We keep lines flowing with over 100 years of experience machining valves and fittings. Our screw machining capabilities, partnered with our experienced staff, make us one of the leaders in reliable valve and fitting manufacturing.

A client from the hydraulics industry contacted Ashley Ward to manufacture a series of brass fittings. These fittings allow for quick connection and disconnection of hydraulic lines. Using our premium Acme Gridley machines, we were able to maintain a tight tolerance of just (±) .002 of an inch, which allowed us to meet precise customer design specifications.

Custom Hydraulic Brass Fittings

Constructed from 360 brass material, each fitting measured exactly .8125 of an inch in outer diameter and 1.48 inches in length, and featured NPT threads. Once we manufactured the components and ensured they fulfilled all of our client's requirements for design and quality, we then packaged and delivered these units to our customer's facility. Exceeding client expectations, we produced 150,000 brass fittings for the hydraulic industry.
