Testing & Engineering
Our expertise revolves around a diversified team of engineers equipped with the latest technological tools to address industry demands.
As a primary resource of product design engineering, our Research and Development labs test clamping solutions to predict the best performance in real life conditions.
Our labs and technicians perform temperature tests, salt spray tests, band load and tension tests, calibration tests and often develop custom testing procedures to fit a customer requirement.
Our product engineers can develop custom designs for any application from band notching and slotting to special finishes and screw head designs. We create solid and 3-D modeling that includes stress and finite elemental analysis to help determine the best materials and configuration for your application.
Production and Efficiency
IDEAL developed new clamping technology and process solutions like our proprietary production software and networked production control board that track and report real-time production so that we can make adjustments and improvements for the most efficient use of resources. The touch screen control panels provide operators with accurate, immediate adjustments for differences in materials, components and fine tuning capabilities. From the networked condition monitoring system, management and engineering can view instant reports on how the machines are running, what components are running, efficiency rates, fault statistics and other valuable production data.
IDEAL operates the latest manufacturing equipment and facilities from cellular and computer operated manufacturing complexes to advanced laboratory analysis. Our automated packaging system is efficient and flexible. It processes both standard and private brand packaging for the automotive, hardware, industrial, marine and plumbing markets.
