Actuated Solutions at Valve World Expo
Held for the first time in Dusseldorf, the 2010 Valve World Exhibition saw 536 international companies from 37 countries present the latest technologies, components and systems from the broad field of industrial valve technology.
This year HK Contromatic's stand was larger than ever with new products including; HL Series linear electric actuators and a model ETS-270 spring return heavy duty pneumatic actuator, complete with hydraulic hand pump manual override. A huge beast producing 176,000Nm of torque and weighing in at 5,000 kilos, it was the largest actuator on display at the show!
Despite extreme weather and travel delays, the show was very busy. With Paul and Chris helping to man the stand, all three days saw a steady flow of visitors including many of our UK customers.
