Some of the most iconic suspension bridges are here in the United States: Brooklyn Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, George Washington Bridge, Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, and the scenic Royal Gorge Bridge in our home state of Colorado. Driving over these wonders of engineering you were probably more focused on the traffic than on the bridge’s construction or maintenance, but BAND-IT band and buckle are used to bind together the cables used in many suspension bridges including the George Washington Bridge and Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge.

With more and more heavy machinery rolling out on projects funded by the $1 trillion-dollar bipartisan infrastructure bill, emissions from these massive machines is a growing concern. Increasingly stringent emission standards for heavy equipment have put pressure on manufacturers and necessitated more complex exhaust systems in these diesel engines. More complex engines and a huge spike in demand for heavy equipment created a challenge for the exhaust system suppliers.

Instead of burying standard fiber conduits individually as needed our customer utilized a large outer conduit housing pre-filled with 30 fiber conduits. This approach allows them to dig once but add the fiber as needed in the future, resulting in significant cost savings over the life of the project.

When you think of road, railway, and utility projects the images in your mind are sure to contain heavy equipment like dozers, loaders, and excavators. One component which has become critical in these machines, as emission standards have become more stringent, is the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Cooler. But mounting that irregular shaped component to the engine block is not a job suited to any joining method.
