The demand for sealing fasteners has never been greater. As equipment becomes more expensive and sophisticated, the need to keep it contaminant free is critical. And as environmental concerns grow, the need for an environmentally sustainable solution to equipment failure is paramount.
Last week, ZAGO Manufacturing Co. hosted a manufacturing facility tour for more than 20 star STEM students from Essex County Newark Tech, and it was a blast! What a gratifying experience to watch faces light up as students viewed different stages of the manufacturing process, and as they spoke about their dreams, higher education plans and future careers in STEM. And perhaps, as a result of our tour, manufacturing!
ZAGO was one of the smallest companies to attend this year’s Women in Manufacturing Summit, but that did not diminish its impact. ZAGO’s Vice President, Gail Friedberg and Vice President of Operations Jackie Luciano mingled with women from some of the largest manufacturers in the U.S. such as ITT, Praxair and GE Appliances. The companies came together to discuss this year’s Summit themes: Support. Promote. Inspire.

Recently, Flanders, the northern region of Belgium launched a “smart” water management system based on networked, interconnected sensors. The sensors provide insight into its regions water use, water quality and available water quantity. This is just one of the many ways that intelligent sensors are improving our use of both natural and mechanical resources. But sensors are sensitive! They contain microcontrollers and electronics that can be easily damaged by the infiltration of water, dust and other contaminants.
