SECO: Inspiration Through Innovation

Inspiration through Innovation is an annual event held by Seco Tools at their state-of-the-art Technology Centre in Alcester, Warwickshire. The objective is to be an inspiring and practical event that is truly customer focused and to demonstrate unequivocally to visitors the improvements in productivity, performance and reducing waste that can be achieved by collaboration, sharing best practice and working in partnership.

The event has been held at Seco’s Technology Centre for the last four years and has grown not only in size but in popularity year on year.

The official launch of FluidTrend: Customer Portal

This tailored and bespoke software program was developed by Houghton to support our Fluidcare® and your Metal Working Fluid operations. The system is auditable and allows users to identify both performance and cost trends for any given machine or system immediately.

FluidTrend is an intuitive and user-friendly customer portal allowing machine reports and trends to be generated quickly and easily. FluidTrend allows you to make informed decisions in regard to your production activities with complete confidence.
