Industrial Manufacturing

When Physical & Digital Worlds Converge, Engineers & OEMs Choose ZAGO High-Tech Sealing Fasteners, Security / Tamper-Proof Seal Screws

Engineers and OEMs are transitioning to the smart factory, digitizing the shop floor while automating and connecting traditional machinery with sophisticated sensors capable of capturing, storing, and transmitting troves of sensitive data. While this data is a competitive advantage for OEMs; safeguarding the sensors that capture it is paramount – whether from physical disruption or cyberattacks.

Dual Protection

To protect both manufacturing equipment and fragile sensors, engineers and OEMs choose ZAGO high-tech sealing fasteners, and particularly, ZAGO security / tamper-proof seal screws, which perform a dual function: they seal contaminants from leaking into or out of machinery, and they contain a locking mechanism that is next to impossible to break or open without proper tooling.

ZAGO Sealing Technology

ZAGO high-tech sealing fasteners (sealing screws, nuts, bolts, washers) are engineered with a groove under the head of the fastener (or face of the nut) that when combined with a rubber O-ring and tightened, squeezes outwardly to form a 360º hermetic seal, that:

  • Ensures the O-ring will not break or crack once the screw is torqued.
  • Is impervious to contaminants, such as, water, moisture, oil, disinfectants, precipitation, and dust, that may seep into machinery and either damage or destroy it.
  • Prevents contaminants from leaking out of machinery and into the environment as well as synthetic lubricants, essential for the mobility of robots and co-bots, from drying up.

ZAGO high-tech sealing fasteners are sustainable, re-usable and inherently green. They can withstand harsh weather and extreme temperatures, are vibration and corrosion-resistant and outperform ordinary fasteners in highly pressurized environments.
