Emergency Services and Rail

RAND Manufacturing uses precision machining and precision die cutting to make parts for the emergency service and rail industries. We do not serve consumers directly. Instead, we supply machined and die cut parts to antenna manufacturers and upfitters of emergency vehicles.

RAND Manufacturing supplies die cut antenna gaskets used with positive train control (PTC), a digital data network that includes global positioning system (GPS) satellites, computers and controllers, throttle-brake interfaces, radio communications, and video, all of which depend upon wireless connectivity.

The large die cut antenna gaskets that RAND provides to a leading supplier of rail antennas are mounted atop trains and exposed to wind, weather, and other outdoor elements. These 5-ft. tall radio frequency (RFID) antennas need to attach securely and provide reliable sealing and insulation. RAND also supplies the antenna manufacturer with protective covers for magnets.

Lighting Components

RAND Manufacturing also makes lighting components and other parts that are used in police cars, municipal cars, and vehicles used by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In addition, we provide parts for municipal emergency lighting, including emergency lights that are used in commercial and high occupancy residential buildings. 

As light emitting diodes (LEDs) are used in more forms of emergency lights and municipal lighting, designers need to consider the effects of high temperatures upon circuits, sensors, and other electronic components. RAND Manufacturing can die cut thermal interface materials (TIMS) for LED lighting and also offers a range of other manufacturing services.
