Although synonymous with heavy engineering such as oil and gas, Rotaflow are able to produce high quality swivel joint across a multitude of engineering sectors including, but not limited to nuclear, subsea and food and beverage.
This article highlights one such project, where Rotaflow was approached by a leading global toothpaste manufacturer to overcome a problem on one of their production lines. The solution was multiple bespoke 4″ 316L Stainless Steel swivels with PTFE main seals that were designed and manufactured in a timely fashion and shipped to USA, so there’s a good chance that Rotaflow have been in some way a part of the machinery that produced your toothpaste!
Since this initial supply, Rotaflow have been contacted to supply further swivels of the same design. This repeat business is one the many ways an engineering company can measure success – in a field with extensive marketplace competition, repeat orders are an indication of quality.
Multi-Industry Experience Comes to the Fore
The standards and operations that Rotaflow have to adhere to across various industry vary significantly.
This multi-sector experience, coupled with the high-quality design and manufacturing Rotaflow deliver, are just a couple of reasons why they are trusted by multinationals to produce swivel joints that are integral to the effective working of a machine. Experience building swivel joints for a wide range of machines in a multitude of environments means the design and manufacturing teams at Rotaflow produce hard-wearing and long-lasting joints that perform exactly as they should.
In manufacturing a break down could cost huge amounts of time and money, not to mention the delay on production, putting pressure on supply chains further down the line.
With this in mind, manufacturing businesses have to be able to trust their engineering partners implicitly. Engineers such as Rotaflow aren’t simply building parts, they’re adding value to a business. Every day that a machine functions effectively is another day where products can be manufactured and sold.
You don’t know the cost of poor quality parts until you suffer a break down – then the cost is more than just the price of a replacement, it’s days or weeks of lost production, lost time and lost market share.
Quality Engineering Helps Prevent PR Disasters
In the cosmetics industry, the build quality of the swivel joint has to be perfect. Any leaks or issues will adversely affect the production of (in this case) the toothpaste. Disease and infection control risks are very real, so every care has to be taken to ensure the swivel joint is not a potential source of poor hygiene or infection. The potential for a PR disaster is huge and the ramifications for the business long-lasting, so there’s absolutely no room for error.
Decades of experience ensure that an effective design and manufacturing process minimises hygiene risks and means that Rotaflow can be trusted to produce swivel joints for a wide variety of food and beverage, plus cosmetic industries. The reputation comes from decades of impeccable performance in these fields.
With quality of design and manufacture at the forefront of everything that Rotaflow do, they continue to be trusted by many of the worlds’ leading businesses, producing consumer products that we all use every single day.
