Cable & Wire Rope Assemblies

Cable and wire rope assemblies are cable systems fabricated from stainless steel, galvanized steel, or similar materials in a variety of thicknesses. The thickness of the wire and cable is determined by the type of load the finished assembly must support. Terminals and end fittings such as eyelets, balls, thimbles, sleeves, and eyes are added to the ends to allow the assembly to be attached to objects or fitted into equipment. For corrosive environments, coatings made of PVC, nylon or […]

Fire Safety Glass

Fire safety glass, also known as fire protective glass or fire-resistive glass, contains special fire-resistive glazing to prevent the spread of smoke and fire. Fire protective glass is typically manufactured using wired glass, ceramics, or tempered glass and used for fire ratings between 20 to 180 minutes. Fire resistive glass also prevents the spreading of smoke and flames but also blocks the transfer of radiant and conductive heat. This additional protection is formed using multiple layers of laminated glass.

Investment Casting

Investment casting is one of the oldest metal forming techniques and involves using a wax pattern to create a ceramic mold. This molding method creates exact shapes and allows for thin walls and complex passageways and details that are harder or costlier to achieve using other casting methods.
Once the wax patterns are created, they are placed on a tree-like assembly and dipped into a series of fine-grained silica slurries to create a thick coating. After the coating dries the mold […]

Mechanical Screening Equipment

Screening equipment is used to mechanically separate wet, granulated, or dry bulk materials. There are several types of machinery available including gyratory equipment, high-frequency vibrating equipment, Circle-throw vibrating equipment, and trommel screens. The equipment uses a combination of vibration, gravity, and electrostatic force to pass material through a screen, sorting the particles by size.
Screening equipment is used by a range of industries including mining, agriculture, forestry, recycling, pharmaceutical, food production, plastics manufacturing, and others.
