Himoinsa’s Stage V range

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 2:48 pm

Himoinsa has designed a range of generators with Yanmar, FPT and Scania engines that include a new after-treatment system to comply EU emissions regulations for non-road mobile machinery.

The standard requires a reduction of up to 90% of harmful particles with respect to the previous technology. With a power range from 9kVA to 550kVA, the compact S5 machines have canopy doors with upper faces angled at 20° to prevent water ingress, while the addition of a zinc-rich primer prior to the final paint finish gives resistance to salt.

The sets incorporate a rock wool insulation whose thickness in certain areas has been increased from 50mm to 100mm to reduce noise. Models also include a new control and power panel integrated into the rear of the canopy to save space and facilitate maintenance.

The fuel and AdBlue tanks are the same size for optimum running time. The HRFW 200 S5 model, seen at Bauma in Munich this week, incorporates has a tank capacity of 600 litres and a running time of 14 hours. For more details visit www.himoinsa.com

Optimum torque from Hilti

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 12:47 pm

Hilti’s new SIW 6AT-A22 cordless impact wrench and SI-AT-A22 adaptive torque module have been designed to overcome the problem of under and over-torqued HST3 stud anchors.

The module slots into the base of the tool and has a mechatronic system to process live data on the settings being done. Hilti says that, when used together, this covers ETA approvals for HST3 stud anchors ranging in size between M8 to M12, and that it offers a consistently accurate alternative to torque wrenches and torque bars.

Users scan the box of the Hilti HST3 anchor with the AT module’s integrated barcode reader and the tool automatically tightens to the required torque. Once the process is complete, the module provides a visual and audible alert before stopping automatically.

The torque module can be connected to a computer to download all settings done for an installation report using documentation software available from the manufacturer. The system can also be used to set standard bolts up to size M16 according to one of 30 available torque settings. For more information visit www.hilti.co.uk/siw6at

Morris adds the kitchen sink

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 8:33 am

Morris Site Machinery has waited until today to announce that its design team have developed a mini kitchen for its Denyo generators to provide home comforts on work sites.

Available as an option, the quirky Kitchyo includes an oven, hob, kettle, pots, pans, and even a kitchen sink.

CEO Chris Morris said, “Our talented design team regularly produce quality equipment that embodies our ‘Built to Perform’ ethos and they were inspired to come up with something different.

“The mini kitchen can be fitted to our range of silent generators. It means we can not only meet on-site power needs, but also fuel the operatives with hearty cooked breakfasts, and hot food and drinks throughout the day and night.”

He continued, “Our generators are known for their silent operation and we’re confident the sizzling sounds of frying bacon from the new kitchen kit will meet noise restrictions on site.”

• EHN recognises that Morris is constantly hungry for success, and this latest initiative reinforces that view. However, we understand the Kitchyo is only available in an extremely limited edition and that customers should contact the company before noon today, 1st April, for the best chance of success. You’d be a Fool otherwise.

Syrinx adds Sage Pay integration

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 9:17 am

Point of Rental has integrated its Syrinx hire software product with Sage Pay, allowing users to provide a one-step credit card payment option to customers.

The company says this allows payments to be processed via Sage Pay PDQ machines, known as point-of-sale terminals, or via Sage Pay’s token system. This is said to streamline the credit card payment process whilst increasing security.

Point of Rental adds that the integration allows payment values to be passed directly from Syrinx’s cash payment feature to Sage Pay PDQ and back, removing re-keying errors and eliminating other errors.

If the cardholder is not present, the token system is designed to make transactions secure and to simplify the book-keeping process, saving time in reconciliation. For more information visit pointofrental.co.uk/products/syrinx/sage-pay.

Cable locator from Vivax

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 8:54 am

The vLoc3-Pro from Vivax-Metrotech is designed to locate buried utility cables without causing them damage.

The hand-held device, which was displayed at the Executive Hire Show last month, enables offset locating, meaning the user does not have to be directly above the cable in order to identify its exact location and depth. Its configurable frequency range runs from 16Hz to 200Hz.

The unit uses a tri-axial antenna to pinpoint the location of the target, from any direction, and features five different screen views, including a classic location screen, and plan view showing the relative orientation of the cable at any angle.

Data is stored in the cloud, or can be communicated via Bluetooth to external GPS devices as an optional extra. For more information go to www.vivax-metrotech.com

Trojan Construction launched its new Platinum Pipe Cutter blade at the Executive Hire Show last month. It is designed to cut and chamfer in one action to create a bevel on pipes, helping to improve productivity.

The product is also said to eliminate the risk of an operator using the side of a standard diamond blade to chamfer a pipe.

Klauke struts its stuff

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 8:56 am

At the recent Executive Hire Show, Klauke unveiled the Greenlee Shear 30T strut-cutter, designed to provide safer and more effective shearing of strut and threaded rod.

Instead of using a conventional saw, it utilises a combination of a powerful 30-tonne hydraulic ram and die set. This means there are no sparks during the shearing process, with comparatively little noise, and it leaves hardly any burrs, meaning minimal dressing is required afterwards, according to the manufacturer.

The machine uses a laser-marked measuring system for accuracy, and a quick die-changing system improves productivity. Powered by a battery-powered pump, it is also cable-free and, being mounted on a trolley, is easy to manoeuvre. For more information go to www.greenlee.com

Firefly adds to hybrid offering

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 8:54 am

Powerplus is Firefly’s first fully-integrated hybrid generator, incorporating a diesel generator and a high-capacity bunded fuel tank. The company says the unit provides excellent noise reduction, thanks to a two-stage silencer and air intake system.

Firefly, which promoted Powerplus at the recent Executive Hire Show, has also improved the control system and user interface, with a 7in touch screen.

Furthermore, it has enabled remote configuration and control of all AC outlets, via a web portal, as well as monitoring socket level loading and energy consumption, with data transmitted over both 3G and 4G networks. Further details can be found at www.fireflyhybridpower.com
