simatec at the Marine Maintenance Expo

14−16 October 2014 in Brussels, Belgium

simatec Stand 4005 / Hall 3

For the first time, simatec will be presenting their products at the Marine Maintenance Expo in Brussels, Belgium. Simatec has three main goals for the expo: expand into a new market segment, improve the simatec image, and win new customers.

The focus at the simatec Stand 4005 will be the high-performing portable induction heater simatherm IH 025 VOLCANO and the automatic lubricator simalube.

The portable induction heater simatherm IH 025 VOLCANO enables outstanding heating performance with an extremely light structure weighing just 3.5 kg (7.7 lbs.). It can be used to heat roller bearings with internal diameters of over 20 mm, external diameters starting at 160 mm and a weight of up to 10 kg (22 lbs.).

The IH 025 VOLCANO also offers a unique product benefit with PTC (Predictive Temperature Control). This function ensures that the workpiece is heated evenly and the preselected temperature is achieved precisely and quickly, with no risk of overheating.

Using simalube pays off in many ways. Manual lubrication is no longer required. As a result of the time saving alone, costs are considerably reduced and manpower resources are freed up for profitable tasks in the value chain. The simalube closed system prevents any penetration of dirt. This extends the service life of the lubricated components and ensures reliable operation of the equipment. And last but not least, no lubrication points are overlooked or forgotten. simalubelubricators are tested according to the latest standards of product safety. Approval certificates can be requested from the manufacturer.
