Solutions for Complex Engineering Problems

Abrasive Fluid Dispenser
Sealing Solution for Aggressive Media

Process Industries

A customer asked Zatkoff to troubleshoot a problem with their dispensing equipment. The equipment would work for three weeks before the primary pumping seals needed to be replaced, causing production downtime for the end users of this dispensing equipment. The seal’s premature failure was caused by the pumping of an abrasive fluid, described by the customer as “liquid sandpaper”.

Low Volume Over-Molding
Metal Inserted Plastic Component

Automotive Tier

The excitement and fast pace of the EV market is not without its challenges. Lower volumes limit the appeal of some traditional manufacturing methods like plastic injection molding. At a time when weight is of greater concern than ever and complex, over-molded plastic parts offer a solution, tooling and lead times are often prohibitive for prototype, and low-volume components need to support these programs. Zatkoff successfully supported this demand with fast turnaround of both prototype and low volume production of an over-molded plastic component.

Hydraulic Pump
Excluder Seal

Fluid Power

A customer was designing a new hydraulic pump, and turned to Zatkoff for assistance in determining the best sealing solution for its application. After various tests, the original pump design failed and it was back to the drawing board. Through a collaborative effort, a new sealing solution system was elected that passed all tests and is now used as a standard for the company’s new pump models.
