Curtiss-Wright has announced that it will be attending INTERMAT 2015 — the international exhibition for machinery, materials and equipment — to promote products from all its industrial division brands, including Arens Controls, Penny Giles, PG Drives Technology and Williams Controls.

Senior vice-president and general manager of the industrial division Kevin Rayment said: ‘This is one of the few industry trade shows where all four brands will be exhibited together, with products from the division’s diverse portfolio being suitable for a wide range of applications from on-/off-highway commercial vehicles to powered access platforms, pallet trucks and floor-care machines.’

Products on show

  • The Arens Controls products will include by-wire shift selectors for automatic and automated manual transmissions for on-highway vehicles including trucks and buses and off-highway mechatronic controls including multiple-function operator consoles and hydrostatic lever controls. Key sectors include hybrid vehicle power management systems such as traction inverters, DC/DC converters, DC/AC inverters and power distribution modules.
  • Penny Giles branded products will include a range of finger- and hand-operated, multi-axis joystick controllers and handle options, linear and rotary positions sensors, tilt sensors and solenoid actuators.
  • Products from the PG Drives Technology brand will comprise AC, AC/DC and permanent-magnet motor controllers, ideal for small industrial vehicle applications including small materials-handling devices. Also on show will be an integrated, multi-module aerial work control system that controls a platform’s entire functionality including variable lift, lower and traction.
  • The Williams Controls brand will be represented by a range of floor, narrow, suspended, LCV, EM and rocker pedals, with complementary systems including lever-operated and rotary electronic hand controls and a range of standard and customisable heavy-duty industrial joystick controllers.
