Architectural Precast Innovations

The Challenge

The heavy task of manufacturing precast concrete involves repetitive movement of very large, very heavy walls of concrete which uses two 20 ton overhead crane systems repeatedly throughout the day.

Finding a remote control solution that didn't frequently break was an issue for API which was experiencing every type of issue imaginable with their two different remote systems in their main facility. The delay for repairs often cost them a month or more and their back-up pendant system created work delays that were unsustainable.

MtronPTI uses ECCOSTOCK FFP for Staking Toroidal Inductors in Place

MtronPTI (www.mtronpti.com), a full service manufacturer of frequency control devices sought to encapsulate several toroidal inductors in one of their 250 MHz High Power RF Filters. These inductors (shown after potting below) undergo extreme vibration throughout its lifespan and without being properly staked in place, they would eventually vibrate loose causing the equipment to malfunction.
