After a long four year wait due to the Covid Pandemic, Techno Marketing Group (TMG) finally returned to the Automechanika Show 2022 at Frankfurt, Germany in September as exhibitors to showcase their various technologically, advanced range of products and brands alongside the innovative developments that have been achieved since the last event in 2018. TMG is globally recognised as industry leading experts in (mobile) wheel servicing, battery service and Ergonomic Handling Products.
One of the highlights on the TMG booth was the ecube Generation 4 mobile tyre service unit. Constant demonstrations attracted different types of groups. New service fleet owners gathered, traditional workshops were impressed. Besides the ecube machine, a brand new ‘mobile energy’ Powerbox unit has been released on the show. The original Powerbox which supplies the ecube service unit has been transformed into a stand-alone unit available for all markets due to its modular design. The system can be expanded in both ways of capacity and power. In this way the customer requirements can always be fulfilled.
Rory Bouman, Executive Assistant at TMG, points out that the Battery box has a standard 5,2kWh capacity which can be put in line with up to 15 battery boxes currently. The product is 100% designed, developed and produced in The Netherlands.
With a choice of outputs like an Type 2 EV outlet, the new Powerbox is expected to become available in the market by the end of this year and replace the existing Powerbox facility which is much heavier and difficult to carry around. The best part? It fully recharges itself though DC/DC, solar panels or within 1 hour through AC charging. Besides ecube, the new Jack The Mech line from Winntec created some interesting enquiries throughout the week.
The All-in-one JTM 200010 Mobile Air and Energy Station offers a swift one-hour recharge facility along with a battery performance capacity of 55.5Wh Lithium-Ion and peak current up to 2000A. Whilst The JTM floor Jack-the-Mech offers an impressive selection of features and benefits including a dual piston pump to guarantee easy lifting, a rugged universal joint and wide front wheels that enables precise and efficient load control plus a two piece fully detachable handle. The product also provides a highly flexible 130mm to 470mm lifting range and has a heavy steel construction.
The Winntec brand were also showcasing its ‘unique’ tire cart to its range – ‘The Dominator’: a heavy duty, high performance Tire Cart which has been specifically produced for daily use and long term service levels. It has been exclusively manufactured within the EU and has Italian industrial wheels. Gaither also released this year their Bead Bazooka gen 2 with an improved & more user-friendly 2 inch valve system.
Ralph Dubbeldam, Managing Director of TMG says, “Using the show to present and demonstrate all our latest products from ecube, Winntec and Gaither Tool was a most welcome experience after four years. A lot of constructive interest was generated for all our products. It seems that different countries than we originally anticipated including some in the African and Asian continent are ready for ecube & mobile service. There is no doubt that TMG is becoming an increasingly well-known brand in the automotive product market.” We met our customers, end-users of our products and interesting new prospects. Clearly Covid has made an impact on Automechanika since there were 2000 less booths than in 2018 which is shocking to see. Hall 8 (where we are located) has always been a good place to be, and we felt that!
Taking everything into consideration, TMG felt it was a highly successful return to the automotive show scene and the perfect platform for the resurgence of the industry post-Covid!
