Wilec: Divisional News
High quality new brand of industrial chains
Wilec’s Mechanical Division, which supplies and supports a range of well-known brands of industrial bearings and associated components, recently introduced a high quality new brand of industrial and transmission chains into the local market.
The new range bears the brand name Matco and is manufactured by a world-leading China-based producer of industrial chains. Wilec is the sole distributor locally and initially holds stocks of various types of standard range chains to launch the new product.
WILEC: Latest model Surge Tester
Wilec has introduced the latest model surge tester from the internationally renowned electrical test equipment manufacturer Risatti Instruments of Italy.
Wilec, an ACTOM group company, has represented Risatti in Southern Africa for many years as sole distributor of its surge testers, offering multi-functional units for voltages ranging from 6 kV to 30 kV.
Dodge Housed Bearings
The Bearings division of ACTOM group company Wilec has formed a strategic alliance for the supply of Dodge housed bearings into Southern Africa.
The partnership agreement with Johannesburg-based Specialised Bearings & Transmission (Pty) Ltd, the local distributor for Dodge, extends Wilec’s ability to satisfy the requirements of industry and mining in a diverse range of bearings applications.
“Dodge is a world leading brand in housed bearings. The most exciting thing about our tie-up with Dodge is that housed bearings, while already widely accepted in the US and other leading industrialised countries, is a relatively new concept locally, but one which offers advanced features to users compared with conventional plummer block arrangements,” said Frans Odendaal, Wilec’s Technical Specialist, Bearings.
