Technology Update for Wood's Powr-Grip products

The latest version 7.0 enables Intelli-Grip to connect wirelessly with a monitoring app.  It is currently in the late stages of development for Wood's Powr Grip Suction and Inline products. The app will be available soon for Android devices on Google Play Store. An app for iOS devices is planned but not yet in development.
How else does 7.0 differ from earlier versions?
Three additional languages — Czech, Dutch and Italian — are supported by 7.0. Other languages supported by Intelli-Grip includes Danish, English, French, German, Norwegian, Spanish and Swedish languages.

Which products have Intelli-Grip®?
All models with DC3 as part of their model number. Depending on the date of manufacture, the lifter will be equipped with either the original version of Intelli-Grip software (5.2) or an updated version (6.0 or 6.4). Models equipped with version 7.0 started shipping in mid 2019.

What is Intelli-Grip®?
Our vacuum lifter technology maximizes productivity, reduces human error, simplifies maintenance and repairs, and protects workers from harm. Intelli-Grip achieves this by monitoring the power system and dual vacuum system in real time, performing diagnostics automatically, displaying that information on the LCD screen of the lifter’s Control Unit and, when necessary, signalling an operator via strobe light and notification buzzer.

Hamilton Windscreens, Winners of V8 Supersprints Promotion

Nick and Markus from Hamilton Windscreens, Winners of the Supersprint V8 Promotion, had a fantastic filled weekend of V8 Supersprints at Pukekohe Raceway.  With corporate hospitality at a corporate tent with spectacular views of the pit, Nick enjoyed the fact he could be so close to the drivers and cars on the grid. "It was very well organised with great catering and people to enjoy the company," explains Nick.  Nick had the opportunity to get up close to Fabian Coulthard one of the NZ drivers. 

Marcus and Nick would like to thank Bostik and Glasscorp for such an awesome time at the V8 and they cannot wait for the next opportunity to win a competition like this.
