07 March, 2018

Schwer Fittings

At Fluid Power & Systems in 2018, Schwer Fittings will show its expanded hose catalogue, with dimensions, technical information and a crimp guide. Looking to the future, Schwer recently opened a new production facility in Czech Republic. Alongside existing products, this facility will focus on u2-Lok production, Schwer’s rapidly expanding twin ferrule range. With most products available from stock in Warrington, Schwer can supply a next-day service throughout the UK. Threads available include BSPP, BSPT, NPT, Metric and JIC; hose tails include standard and interlock; DNV certified compression fittings in single and twin ferrule; LP and HP valves.


At Fluid Power Systems 2018, SMC will showcase around 50 new products recently launched in Europe. These will include the Series PF3A7digital flow switch for large flow. The latest digital flow switch to join the SMC family, PF3A7#H, monitors the consumption of the main line with a 100:1 ratio. The PF3A7#H covers a large flow measurement range and features a clear and easy-to-read display, which is crucial in monitoring main line, branch or specific equipment. Also on display will be the MACM; a new centring unit from SMC that helps to align and position heavy workpieces on the move, so manufacturers can install and operate more compact conveyor lines. The MACM helps to align and position workpieces up to 1000 kg on conveyor lines, so smaller cylinders can be used.

Sunfab UK

Sunfab designs and manufactures bent axis piston pumps and motors along with its variable piston pump range. At Fluid Power & Systems, Sunfab will be highlighting its Bent Axis Piston motor range (SCM) with a new addition; the ‘SAM’ motor. This motor is the company’s first motor to utilise aluminium for its casing, offering a unit that is claimed to be 20% lighter, corrosion resistant and hydrodynamic. The SCM & SAM offerings are manufactured to the highest quality at Sunfab’s facility in Hudiksvall, Sweden. Some applications where the company’s motors can be found include mobile, agricultural, materials handling and marine. Sunfab will also demonstrate its range of fixed and variable displacement pumps at the show.

Air-Tech 2018 - exhibitor taster

Just some of the exhibitors at Air-Tech 2018 will include the following:

The British Compressed Air Society (BCAS)

Vanda Jones, the British Compressed Air Society’s executive director, commented: “As the UK’s only dedicated exhibition for the compressed air, generators and vacuum market, Air-Tech is an ideal chance for visitors to keep up to date with all the latest developments in our industry. For BCAS, it is an ideal opportunity to engage with manufacturers, distributors and end users alike, and for us to provide impartial advice about legislation, standards and technical issues Events like Air-Tech are more vital than ever over the next two years because it brings our industry together to understand issues that affect us all; such as Brexit.”

Hertz Kompressoren

Among its wide portfolio of rotary screw and reciprocating air compressors, and compressed air dryers and filters, Hertz Kompressoren will be promoting its state-of-the art hot water heat recovery unit at Air-Tech 2018. A heat exchanger is installed in the hot oil line in the compressor, and heating water is then heated by this hot compressor oil. Hertz Kompressoren comments that the system is not complicated, and the cost of initial investment is not expensive. The company adds that saving heat energy can realise that cost within one year of operation. There will be further product announcements nearer the time of the show.
