Hose and fittings supplied by Hydraulic and Automation Warehouse (HAW), along with its onsite hose and fittings container service, are aimed at increasing onsite productivity and profitability. Stocking a complete match system of Italian-manufactured Intertraco hoses, collars and fittings allows HAW to guarantee high quality stock manufactured by a single supplier, providing complete product traceability.
To ensure adequate onsite supply of all hoses and accessories, as well as provide an easily accessible service and repair offering, HAW offers its onsite containerised workshop and storage facility. Developed by fellow Group Company Hytec Services Africa (HSA), the container workshop provides hose and fittings services and helps facilitate HAW’s entire range of hydraulic services on a mine or any other site.
Five fully stocked branches in Cape Town (Western Cape), Johannesburg (Gauteng), Middelburg (Mpumalanga), Port Elizabeth (Eastern Cape) and Pine Town (KwaZulu-Natal) ensure that HAW delivers all products and services with minimal lead time.
Onsite container workshops
Measuring from 6 to 12 metres, a typical containerised workshop comprises a work bench, air conditioner and extractor fan, three phase 380 V power source, LED lighting and eight 10-tier adjustable shelves. Each workshop is fitted with a Uniflex UG32 crimper, cut-off machine, skiver, engraver and pallet cleaner.
Stock depends on site requirements, but typically includes one- and two-wire hose; four- and six-wire spiral hose; mining and air hose; fuel hose; collars and hose fittings; adaptors and high and low pressure ball valves. A single container is used for repair services and administration, while additional containers for bulk product storage are supplied on request.
“All units, which are also ideal for remote locations, can be custom built to suit any specifications and shipped with or without stock,” Golombick explains. “We set them up to suit specific client requirements and provide onsite training to ensure best in class service. All of this contributes to the increased productivity and less onsite downtime.”
