A Retrofit Challenge

Added - 19.08.2019

Our man Dan Gane was on site the other week to retrofit some latest-spec AUMA actuators to replace some 'other manufacturer's' equipment that wasn't meeting the performance spec:

"Today's latest retrofit was a challenge, but very rewarding. The previous set up was 2x 48" gate valves each controlled by 1x IS gearbox, 2x IB gearboxes and an IQ35. Unfortunately too much torque was being lost through the drive train and the 980 turns weren't being met. With the ability to remote mount the AC controls meant we could install the actuator directly onto the IS gearbox and have no loss of torque, but keep the controls accessible for the customer. Now the project can be signed off."

AUMA Increases Storage For Increased Stock Availability

Added - 03.07.2019

At AUMA, we're committed to speed. Speed of support, speed of response and speed of build. The modular concept at the core of AUMA's actuator design philosophy is our friend here, because it means that we can receive sub-assembly as well as finished product from our German factories, quickly building up standard actuator and control configurations and shipping to UK customers. Bespoke configurations will still be supplied complete from Germany.

In order to support this side of the business even more effectively, we have reconfigured the interior of our warehousing and service area to maximise our responsiveness. High level storage of an increased inventory of both incoming and outgoing stock means we are able to respond rapidly to requests.

Increased space also allows us to optimise stock of replacement parts for older actuator models, so we can quickly respond to requests from service partners and users.

AUMA improves safety and security in UK service workshops

Added - 18.12.2018

Three into one for AUMA UK Service Operations

As part of a wider project to remodel and streamline AUMA’s UK Head Office in Clevedon, which has also seen the development of a dedicated training and showroom suite and the construction of new offices to bring account management, customer service and technical departments together, AUMA UK has combined three previous workshop spaces into one, making it easier for work to flow through the department and also enhancing employee safety.

Actuators being tested or repaired need to move between different areas within the workshop areas, for example, a refurbished actuator needs to travel from the workbench to the testing and calibration rigs. By removing the walls between the three previous sections of the workshop, AUMA have been able to install a dual gantry crane that can access every area of the workshop, making it easy for one man to safely move a heavy actuator or gearbox anywhere in the area, increasing efficiency and improving workplace safety.
