Precision Automation Meets Advanced Product Demand

As electronics and technologies become smaller and more intricate, engineers are running into new challenges in automating manufacturing processes. The challenges of manufacturing new products extend beyond the capabilities of precise motion control mechanics to include environmental control.

CS Series

The Chromalox CS Series of solid state relays are an ideal, low-cost power control solution for rapidly and precisely switching resistive loads found in industrial applications such as furnaces, ovens, heat treating, injection molding, thermoforming, press platens, commercial food equipment, semiconductor, lighting and drying, just to name a few.

Workplace Safety Still Needs a Human Component

Workplace safety is—or should be—a primary focus of every organization, regardless of whether we’re talking about a classroom, an office, a manufacturing facility, or an oil rig. Employees deserve a workspace that is as safe and secure as it can possibly be.
