Control Technology

  • Rexnord, a Milwaukee-based industrial manufacturer, announced recently that it is expanding its role in the process controls market with the formation of the Process Controls Division.

    The new division combines the product lines, markets and control technology capabilities of Rexnord's recent acquisitions—Fife Corporation, Tano Corporation and Micro Pure Systems Inc.—and the company's former Electronic Products Division.

    In making the announcement, James J. Hayden, a corporate vice president and division president, said: "This unifying of our process controls capabilities provides Rexnord with a higher level of controls technology and more aggressive approach to the marketplace.

    The acquisitions were an excellent complement to our existing sensing technology. We are optimistic that through our commitment to quality products, new product development and selective acqusitions, we will further strengthen our position in the control products marketplace.

    Fife Corporation is a leading supplier of automatic guiding and spreading or expanding continuous flexible material such as paper, plastic, textile, steel or copper. Its facilities are located in Oklahoma City.

    Tano Corporation, headquartered in New Orleans, designs and manufacturers computer-based automation and control systems for marine, oil and gas, and energy management applications.

    Micro Pure Systems Inc. manufacturers instruments which use ultrasonic technology to detect microscopic particles in liquids. The instruments are used in the manufacture of semiconductors and in oil production monitoring. The company is located in Smithfield, R.I.

    Rexnord's former Electronic Products Division manufacturers industrial weighing equipment, microprocessor- based process controls and systems, water and wastewater analytical instruments, fixed gas detection equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus. Its operations are located in New Berlin, Wise.; Malvern, Pa.; and Sunnyvale, Calif.

    Rexnord serves the world's marketplace as a major manufacturer of industrial components and machinery.

    The company produces power transmission components, specialty fasteners, crushing and processing machinery for the aggregate and mining industry, water pollution control equipment, material handling systems, process controls, chemical products and other specialized equipment. They employ people in 51 United States and Canadian plants and in 22 oversees facilities. They are headquartered in the Milwaukee area.
