Fully automated manifold design

No more design backlogs

QuickManifolds® is a fully automated manifold
design platform, powered by
VEST patented AutoRoutertechnology*.
This is a cloud based platform that
enables progressive organizations to deliver
manifold designs at a cost that is significantly
lower than standard design processes.

* US Patent No 7558713

A customized web interface
branded to your organization standards,
allows your distributors and customers
to help themselves to manifolds designs, 3D models, and
manufacturing drawings within minutes,
before placing an order.



Your Company Standards

QuickManifolds has a library of standard material,
tooling, and cavity data, which is used by the
AutoRouter engine to design manifolds


The library is configurable to your company standards


QuickManifolds handles both metric and imperial data
and has multi-standard support for global organizations

Design Defaults: Units, minimum wall thickness, maximum slenderness ratio, minimum clearance between components,

cross drill port standards


Standard Ports and Valve Patterns


Manufacturing Defaults: Drill sizes, material cross sections, manufacturing constraints

QuickManifolds interface available within
HyDraw® circuit design software


Submit your circuit to QuickManifolds
directly from HyDraw

QuickManifolds used for small run mobile manifolds to quickly produce a workable design configuration which can be further refined using MDTools®

MDTools used in a manual semi-automated process for
industrial manifolds and large run production manifolds



QuickManifolds is capable of designing manifolds
with screw-in cartridges and surface mounted valves,
Other valve types are presently not covered

For large circuits, consider using
VEST MDTools manifold design software

Circuits containing up to 12 cartridges

Circuits containing 1 surface mounted valve
and up to 8 screw-in cartridges

Circuits containing 2 surface mounted valves
and up to 5 screw-in cartridges


Minimum Requirements

High-speed internet connection
License of HyDraw circuit design software
or License of MDTools manifold design software


To evaluate QuickManifolds,
Use a Free evaluation version of HyDraw
