Find your innovation

  • Eco-Design Drives Energy Savings

    New government regulations mandated energy-saving measures for manufacturers of chest and vertical freezers. The eco-design requirements limit energy usage even when an operator fails to properly turn off the appliance.

  • Dishing Up Critical Controls

    A well-known appliance manufacturer was caught in an inconvenient and potentially costly conflict of new ideas and current components when debuting a new dishwasher model. Shortly after the product launch, the manufacturer was notified that their current supplier was discontinuing the electronic motor speed control that had been incorporated into the dishwasher.

  • All-In-One System Streamlines Production

    A major manufacturer of hot surface gas ranges realized that their piecemeal approach to constructing gas systems was inefficient. Managing multiple vendors for burner, igniter, gas valve, gas pressure regulator, and thermostat components complicated their manufacturing processes.

  • Driving Electric Car Innovation

    On the road to leadership in its category, a premium electric car manufacturer recognized the need for high-performing coolant control valves. These valves would empower their automobile’s thermal management system to conserve battery power and extend vehicle drive range. The rigor of an automotive application also demanded durability from the coolant control valve.

  • Backwards-Compatible Yet Forward Thinking

    The regulatory pressure on a water heater manufacturer was heating up. A government body was requiring electric water heaters to connect to the electric utility’s demand response network. The agency implemented the regulation so electricity usage could be optimized automatically.

  • Cooking Innovations to Meet Global Regulations

    Worldwide, there is an enormous range of requirements for energy regulators on cooking ranges. Different regulatory approvals apply in different regions. The industry’s ideal energy regulator would comply with all agency requirements, and handle multiple voltages and outputs.

  • Next Generation Water Valves with Global Reach

    For appliance manufacturers whose products require water flow control, new regulations took on global proportion. The low-lead directives of Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and 2002/95/EC conflicted with legacy soldering processes. Regional differences contributed to inefficiency in assembly. Cost uncertainties stemmed from volatile commodity pricing.

  • Ideal Cooking Thermostat Offers Menu of Features

    Custom controls represent a challenge for manufacturers of commercial cooking equipment. In commercial kitchens, custom solutions are often ordered up fast. Plus, these controls need to be stocked for 10 years to provide service for installed equipment.
