TECHNOLOGY: Comtest Opens In Cape Town
Recent Western Cape Business News
THE Comtest Group has opened a branch in Cape Town. Gavin van Rooy who has been with the group for the past five years, will head up the division, based in Bloubergrand.
“I am looking forward to having the opportunity to support our value-added resellers and dealers who market and promote Fluke Industrial Tools in the Western and Eastern Cape. I am available to demonstrate any of these products and to assist customers in finding the correct test and measurement solutions for their particular applications,” van Rooy says.
One advance in technology, which requires particular note, is thermal imaging. Thermography is a non-contact technology that measures infra-red energy to determine an object’s thermal distribution at a safe distance and often in real time. Before the advent of affordable handheld imagers, plants regularly ran to failure because they didn’t have the tools to constantly review the state of their machinery. As van Rooy is a level II certified Snell Infrared thermographer, he is well positioned to assist companies in putting together a predictive maintenance programme which is guaranteed to save them money in the long term.
Instrotech, a Comtest Group company, which designs and manufactures high quality process control instrumentation and industrial electronics since 1981 and represents thirteen international manufacturers of process control instrumentation, load cells and sensors, will also now have a new home in Cape Town.
“We are a leading producer of process calibrators, weighing electronics, signal conditioners and digital display units with worldwide sales”, says van Rooy.
“We also offer a number of other internationally manufactured products. For instance, load cells which convert an input mechanical force into an electrical output signal are now, more than ever, being used across a number of diverse industries and we can help customers to select the correct load cell type for their application, which is critical, as each of them has its own unique attributes,” he says.
