Simex exhibits its developments at baumaPublished 27/6 at 17:13
At its 350m2 stand, Simex highlighted its technological and industrial development.
Simex offer a range of equipment for applications ranging from road maintenance to utilities installation, recycling, demolition right through to quarrying, mining and tunnelling. This offering, organised into 25 product ranges comprising of around 80 models, is the result of sustained efforts in R&D, optimisation of industrial processes as well as continued investment. Simex has also started construction of a new plant that will allow the company to step up production and expand its sales network in North America, India and Africa.
The Simex stand at bauma showcased new models including the updated RW 500 wheel saw and the RS 16, an attachment designed for creating rumble strips, with the adaptability to perform two additional functions, making it a fully-fledged 3 in 1 attachment. Representing the family of TF cutter heads were the small but powerful TFC 100 and TFC 50 models. The TFC 100 can be mounted on 2.5t to 4t mini excavators, whereas the TFC 50 is designed to be coupled to mini excavators weighing 1.2t to 4t. Both the models can excavate their entire width thanks to a system with central chain that leaves no areas unmilled, enabling the attachment’s working capacity to be exploited to the maximum.
The cutter heads have proved adept in nursery and forestry applications, such as cutting trunks and roots, with the attachments proving effective for digging small trenches on rocky terrain or excavating small manholes or utility vaults for water, telephone or electrical lines. The TF 50 and TF 100 cutter heads can also be used for milling walls in prefabricated concrete or for removing plaster. Because of the weight and size of the prime movers they are coupled to, they have proved useful in the refurbishment of civil and industrial buildings, an application where their low noise levels are appreciated.
During bauma itself Simex also launched the new company slogan, ‘Heavy made easy’, a concept that sums up the ability of Simex products to make an easier job of what is usually a challenging and complex task. The new slogan is matched with an updated coordinated image, which saw the presentation of new promotional material and merchandising during the Munich show. bauma also saw a completely renovated stand and launch of the new web platform, with the website offering improved browsing with special focus on content and the facility to make direct contact with the company. Simex also hosted an evening gala event at the show which was attended by customers, friends and representatives of media.
