Thus it is now able to offer an even broader range of products for mining and materials-handling customers, which will all be showcased at Electra Mining Africa 2016 at Expo Centre Nasrec from 12 to 16 September 2016.

The type TVVS showcased Controlled-Fill Fluid Coupling model is used mainly in belt conveyor drives.
