New Range of Ambersil Dusters & Freezer

Ambersil benefits from five new products that meet the F-Gas regulation, ensuring product availability and best-in-class performance.

Why the need for change?

The F-Gas regulation (EU517/2014) prohibits the placing onto the market any product with acalculated global warming potential (GWP) greater

than 150. The standard measure of GWP is based on Carbon Dioxide (CO2) which has a GWP of 1.

Traditional Dusters and Freezers used a liquified propellant with a GWP of 1,430. This no longer complies with regulations for continued supply.

The new products utilise the latest available technologies to deliver the best results and meetspecific end-user requirements.

For more information regarding the regulation changes, please request a copy of our F-Gas brochure from Customer Services – 01278 727272

New Range Of Welders And Plasma Cutters From Draper Tools

With a wide base of professional automotive users and home-based hobbyists, welding continues to offer many market opportunities.  

 

Now retailers can make even more of those opportunities with a new, expanded range of welding and cutting products from Draper Tools.  16 new welders and 2 new plasma cutters have just been launched, together with a host of essential welding accessories and consumables.

 

Investing in the latest workshop equipment

Draper Tools continues to invest in bringing you and your customers the latest innovations and in demand equipment for the workshop. The new company’s machines come in a variety of welding applications, which are ideal for those who weld professionally as well for enthusiasts. These include: 

  • ARC Welders
  • MMA Inverters
  • MIG Welders
  • MIG Inverters 
  • TIG Welders
  • Multi Process Welders 
  • Plasma Cutters
  • A range of accessories and consumables such as torches, torch tips, shrouds and wires

 

 

Delivering maximum performance 

Draper Tools has invested heavily in technology to ensure its new range of welders offer maximum performance. Many of its welders are marked with DTi, meaning they feature additional ‘Digital Technology Inside’. These machines have settings controlled digitally by micro-processors rather than analogue buttons.  The result is a more intelligent machine, which can handle more settings and therefore offer more functions to the user. DTi also provides exception levels of control and precision, and a more stable signal – all of which results in a better performing machine and a smoother, faster weld. 

 

The new range also includes welders featuring modern inverter technology, which replaces a traditional transformer. Inverter models of welder can be just as powerful but significantly more efficient and, as a result, far smaller and easier to carry around. Their efficiency means they are a more environmentally friendly option for the workshop too.

 

Whether your customers have got aluminium to weld, heavy duty fabrication work to do, vehicle body or chassis repairs, they’ll find the right welder for the job in Draper’s new range. Designed to be a one-stop shop for a range of welding projects, Draper Tools has also produced a handy guide to welders available at www.drapertools.com/welders.

 

 

Ordering has never been easier 

To see the complete new range, with a guide to the different kinds of welders visit www.drapertools.com/welders.

Draper stockists can place online orders at b2b.drapertools.com, speak to their Draper Account Manager or email orders@drapertools.com

New Regional Sales Manager at DART Tool Group

A very welcome addition to the DART Team is a new Regional Sales Manager for the South East region. Adie Walker has been in the industry for more than twenty years with a varied and rich background across numerous roles.

Adie worked in Harrison & Clough many years ago as a Regional Sales Manager then after a few years moved on to Milwaukee Power Tools, which provided him great exposure to the power tools industry and confirmed his ongoing love for ‘big boys toys’ as he calls them!

Then he moved in to a role as General Manager in Invicta Tools, which involved working on the other side of the counter and within a merchants – in this time, he helped to build their sales team and project managed an extension for their warehouse – giving him great insights of the industry. Then latterly he worked for Folkstone Fixings as Sales Manager and building their sales team, managing trade shows, doing branch management and again building their warehouse capabilities.

However, Adie says on his new position in DART ‘I love being this side of the industry – selling in to the merchant trade. It’s a real awakening for me to come back to it now – it’s where my passion lies. To be out on the road, selling products I love, for a company with such a great ethos is a fantastic opportunity’

When asked what attracted him to DART he says ‘I had followed the DART brand for the last ten years and could see they were a company that were going in the right direction – they are constantly moving forward and it’s obvious that they are always innovating. The new DART brand particularly caught my eye’

Adie certainly has plenty of energy and describes himself as optimistic, enthusiastic and happy.  His plan for his new role is to hit the ground running, with plans to visit the customers in his area as soon as possible – especially dormant accounts, as he sees immense potential in the region.

What’s more, Adie has a poignant personal achievement that not many of us can claim – he saved a person’s life! A family member had a motorbike accident while on holiday in Bali and needed to be urgently flown back to the UK. Adie rapidly raised funds within the community to get him flown back by air ambulance, and on transition had to make a life or death decision when he took a turn for the worse in transition – of whether to continue with the flight or to land – both with unknown prospects. Thankfully to all – Adie made the decision that saved his life – so amongst his wealth of experience is excellent decision making!

In Adie’s free time, he enjoys a daily early morning walk with his dog, enjoys a spot of fishing and is a bit of a thrill seeker, with having braved bungee jumping, sky diving and paragliding.

For all those that meet Adie, it won’t come as a surprise that his personal mantra is ‘Stand Tall, Be Proud and Stay Strong’. DART is certainly very excited to have him on board and with his extensive knowledge of the industry, he will be a great help to his customers.

Numatic make a wish come true for 5 year old Erik

Numatic were delighted to welcome a very special visitor to Henry HQ. On Tuesday 21stMay, 5-year-old Erik came to visit all the way from Illinois, USA. Erik is one of Henry’s biggest fans and it was his Make-A-Wish to travel across the globe to visit the home of the iconic vacuum cleaner, in Chard, Somerset. It didn’t take long for Erik to really begin impressing Numatic with his Henry knowledge. In fact, they may even have learnt a thing or two!

After settling in, Erik was taken on a factory tour to see how Henry is made and to meet the Team behind that familiar, friendly face. Then it was time for the big surprise… Erik was invited to help make his very own “Erik” vacuum! They’ve never made an “Erik” before, so he truly is a one-of-a-kind and an appropriate cleaning companion for his young owner. They have no doubt that Erik will put “Erik” to very good use when he gets home, especially with his new AiroBrush
on-hand.

To finish the day, Erik was given one final surprise as a lasting reminder of his visit… A big bag of Henry goodies!

One battery pack for everything – Nine power tool manufacturers sign up to a joint battery pack system with CAS

Double freedom for professional users in trade and industry: With the battery pack system you can not only work without cable, but you can also use the machines of different manufacturers.

 

Metabo, in conjunction with Rothenberger, Mafell, Eisenblätter, Collomix, Haaga, Starmix, Eibenstock and Steinel have signed up something which is unprecedented in the industry – a manufacturer-independent battery pack system. With its LiHD battery packs, Metabo delivers currently the most powerful technology on the market. The high-performance cells from Nürtingen have convinced the CAS partner companies as well.

The basis of the Cordless Alliance System (CAS) is the Metabo’s battery pack technology. In the past years, the German manufacturer has conquered in this area of technology leadership with a whole series of innovations. The latest step towards its vision of a cordless construction site is the 2nd generation of Metabo 18V LiHD battery packs, the 8.0 ampere hours (Ah) capacity battery pack with only 10 cells delivers a massive 1,600 watts of power. “With LiHD we have enough power even for the most energy-intensive applications. Therefore, we can today build any hand-held power tool as a cordless machine – and in such a way that it meets the requirements of professional users in terms of power and endurance”, says Scott Thompson, Metabo`s UK National Accounts Manager.

A system with great end user benefit

Metabo were thinking about the professional users when the idea for CAS was created. “We intensively discuss the requirements and wishes of our users. And in many of these discussions, one request was at the very top of the list: The flexibility to be able to work with only one battery pack system and the machines of different manufacturers.

For mains-powered machines this is not a problem, since the socket is the universal interface of all manufacturers. However, the battery pack systems of the individual manufacturers have not been compatible with each other until now.

We would like to change this at least for the machines of the CAS partners. This provides end users with double the freedom: The one of cordless working, and the one to combine machines of different manufacturers just like with mains-powered machines. With CAS they could automatically recognize which manufacturers work with the same battery pack system and are therefore 100% compatible with each other.”

Ultimately – One battery pack – for 9 different partners. With CAS, professionals can switch between different manufacturers without having to purchase a new battery pack or charger.

PORCA-FAST Vacuum Brazed Diamond Blade For cutting exterior porcelain paving tiles

 

Diamond tool specialist, Premier Diamond Products, have launched the PORCA-FAST diamond blade for cutting exterior porcelain paving tiles. Steve Webb, PDP’s Director of Marketing and Operations, said: “Exterior porcelain paving tiles have grown largely in popularity and are set to become the next big patio material. The problem, however, is they’re incredibly hard and brittle, so even top quality metal bonded diamond blades struggle to cope – the issue is so bad that many paving installers have been turning work away because they cannot cut them.”

PORCA-FAST is a unique vacuum brazed diamond blade, which benefits from diamond finishing inserts to provide relief for the cutting edge – this allows the blade to run smoother through the material ensuring a faster, cleaner cut.

Available in 230mm (9”) for use on angle grinders and 300mm (12”) for disc cutters, the PORCA-FAST blade will be a welcome addition to any trade person looking to install porcelain paving tiles.

To see the blade in action search ‘PORCA-FAST’ on YouTube or scan the QR code with your device.  Alternatively you can visit PDP’s website: www.premierdiamondproducts.co.uk
