For companies practicing sustainability or manufacturing sustainable products, serving like-minded customers is as sweet as strawberries. Just ask ZAGO Manufacturing Co., producer of sustainable sealing fasteners and components used by thousands of innovators worldwide.
ZAGO had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to provide sealing solutions for the Sollum Smart LED Lighting Solution by Sollum Technologies. It is the only technology that recreates, perfects, and modulates the full spectrum of the Sun’s natural light, enabling producers to grow fruits and vegetables in greenhouses anywhere in the world, regardless of their native region.
Sollum’s smart lighting solution produces positive societal outcomes: reduced consumption of water, energy, and chemicals in food production; reduced losses across the full supply chain; and the development of local and ethical agriculture around the world. Benefits for commercial growers include significant energy savings, increased crop yield, the diversification and annualization of production, and high-quality produce with a longer shelf life.
Sollum’s smart LED lighting solution features the cloud-based SUN as a Service® platform, which serves as a command center for its full suite of grower services, including access to an expanding library of light recipes, the ability to create custom light recipes, multi-zone crop management, and real-time and remote lighting control from the computer. Fixtures and sensors aggregate and compile the data collected in the greenhouse for processing and analysis, providing each grower with the ability to adapt, modify, and customize their lighting for produce-specific lighting criteria. The technology also uses that data to compensate between ambient and target light, which results in significant energy savings.
ZAGO sealing screws seal the Sollum smart lighting fixture, protecting the sophisticated sensors and components within it. ZAGO sealing screws are engineered with a custom groove under the head that when combined with a rubber O-ring and tightened, squeezes outwardly, forming a 360 ͦ leak-proof seal. This impenetrable seal prevents contaminants, such as air, water, humidity, moisture, dirt, and dust, from entering the fixture or exiting and leaking into the environment. ZAGO sealing screws are corrosion-resistant, reusable and pollutant-free.
“Collaborating with sustainable companies is exhilarating,” says Harvey Rottenstrich, Lead Engineer, President and Co-Founder, ZAGO Manufacturing. “Especially when their inventions benefit the health and well-being of people and planet.”
“ZAGO’s sealing screws provide us with the peace of mind that comes from the knowledge that we use components of the highest quality in manufacturing our technology,” says Sollum co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, François Roy-Moisan. “Not only that, it’s also great to work with a partner who shares our commitment to building a more sustainable future for all.”
ZAGO manufactures high-tech sealing fasteners, switch boots, and crystal seals in the U.S.A. for engineers and OEMs worldwide. Industries include military, aerospace, electronics, enclosures, LiDAR, medical device, and robotics. ZAGO is ISO 9001:2015, DFARS, MET U.S., REACH, RoHS compliant. Visit: www.zago.com.
