TROY — Seco has announced the launch of a new Web site designed to provide support to manufacturers serving the automotive industry.
The site also provides information of value to manufacturers producing components for agricultural, construction and small engine applications, and is located at www.secotools.com/automotive.
The new Seco automotive site aggregates a wide variety of data-rich content in both video and written formats. Visitors are presented with a user-friendly experience that makes it easy to review information on the latest industry trends, process and product innovations and examples of real-world applications relevant to their operations. A comprehensive resource, the site presents data on materials, cutting processes and other aspects of automotive manufacturing, well beyond subjects related to Seco’s own cutting tool innovations.
One of the highlights of the new Web site involves 3D interactive models of vehicles that allow users to identify specific components and the current best practices used to produce them. The information provided on the site represents the wealth of data gathered by Seco’s global network of experts who partner closely with automotive manufacturers worldwide.
“Many members of the general public think of the automotive segment as a mature industry with little change,” says Gilles Jolivet, International Application Expert for automotive. “In fact, it is an industry rife with innovation. From the drive to produce more eco-friendly vehicles to pursuing productivity and environmental improvements in production, automotive manufacturers face constantly evolving challenges. Our new Web site addresses this fact and provides a valuable resource to help stay on pace with the latest trends and developments.”
Visitors to the site can also use it to locate and contact a Seco automotive specialist in their geographic area. The new site incorporates the same format and approach used in Seco’s highly successful dedicated sites for aerospace and energy manufacturers, which can be found at www.secotools.com/aerospace and www.secotools.com/energy, respectively.
