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

Pramac gas range

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 10:40 am

The natural gas sets, available from 200kVA through to 500kVA, are said to give the same performance as their diesel counterparts and to provide longer running times and with reduced NOx emissions.

Optimised for performance and responsiveness to load variations, the new gas sets have spark-ignition engines and offer integrated control technology, with performance data accessible via tablets, PCs or mobile devices.

MCS launches E-Sign

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 5:29 pm

MCS has launched ‘E-Sign’ functionality within its hire management system, MCS-rm. It is designed to enhance how companies do business with customers, improving process consistency by making it simple to sign quotes and contracts on any device.

E-Sign links directly to MCS-rm, automatically storing signed quotes and contracts, and letting managers see what has been signed, when and who authorised it. The company says that ensuring contracts are digitally signed ahead of delivery helps to eliminate mistakes and improve communication.

Chris Clarke, Development Manager for MCS says, “Hirers’ customers will no longer have to print, sign, scan and email their signed contract. All they need to do is open the contract and to sign it digitally by clicking the ‘accept’ button, whether they open it on a mobile or desktop PC. The hirer manages the process without using paper and the PDFs are completely tamper-proof.”

MCS, which will be exhibiting on Stand J44 at the Executive Hire Show on 6 and 7 February at the Ricoh Arena, is at www.mcs.co.uk
