Industries in Detroit, Michigan, and Beyond Can Rely on Seco Urethane for Custom-Cast Compression Molded Parts

By Fiona Vernon

Industries from Detroit, Michigan, to Tacoma, Washington, that consistently employ heavy-duty applications are frequently searching for products with physical properties that can handle the excessive stress that will be put upon them. The countless uses of urethane are relatively unknown in the parts industry, because it offers qualities superior to those of commodity polymers — including durability, impact resistance, and improved wear. A. Stucki Company has led the international development and application of railcar dynamic, or motion control products, since 1911. Seco Urethane, an extension of Seco Machine, is America’s leading urethane product producer and supplier, specializing in custom-cast urethane parts for railway cars. Seco, a contractor manufacturer, is now an integral part of A. Stucki’s precision-engineered urethane damping components and compression molded parts, as well as prototype sample parts. Any industry from Erie, Pennsylvania, to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, can take advantage of their legacy of providing customers with the highest quality railcar components with significant support regardless of the scope or size of the contract by partnering with Seco Urethane.

Food Industries in Atlanta, Georgia, and Beyond Can Rely on Berran Industrial Group for Custom Assembly Machines

By Fiona Vernon

With technology developing so rapidly over the past century, assembly lines have become an effective and common method of manufacturing complex products, like vehicles, appliances, and other electronics from Spokane, Washington, to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They involve human hands, robotics, or machines that keep parts moving along a conveyor belt in a specific and organized manner. Each worker or machine usually performs a precise, specific action with the goal of having each component travel the least distance possible while building a larger product. A significant part of Berran Industrial Group’s business are its custom automation and assembly machines. Paul Zuzik, the vice president of the Engineering Group, gives an example of an assembly system for a valve used in the food and drink industry that exemplifies their superior products. The 15-year-old design for this particular machine has been in operation for over 35 million cycles and still uses most of the original cylinders, drives, and sensors. Mr. Zuzik stresses that Berran isn’t locked into a specific market or process. They understand and are grounded in the basics of engineering and simply apply their knowledge of mechanisms systems and controls to whatever process needs to be automated, and they recently produced a one-of-a-kind connector assembly machine. An interesting part of special custom machinery are the controls and programming. It’s very common for the PLC programming to be one-of-a-kind, so Berran is constantly operating in a program development mode for any business from San Diego, California, to Atlanta, Georgia. Course quality and minimizing the impact of quality problems is extremely important, so Berran is very active in quality control fixturing, as well as the inclusion of quality checks in the process of many of its machines.
