PCL to showcase leading products at Automechanika Frankfurt

PCL says it is gearing up for a return to Automechanika Frankfurt next month after a four year absence due to Covid.

The company says it will have an innovative package of new products for them to explore, which will also be on display at this year’s CV Workshop EXPO in Dublin this October.

Highlights from PCL’s easy to install and advanced range of fixed tyre inflation equipment will include the menu-driven ACCURA D10, the robust D93 Air and Water Tower and the user-friendly ACCURA QUBE.

PCL’s reliable ACCURA D10 tyre inflators are a popular sight on global forecourts. Offering reliability, repeated accuracy and reduced maintenance and lifetime costs, these electronic pre-set units provide end users with increased safety and fuel economy and extended tyre life.

The UK-manufactured D93 Air and Water Tower is designed to withstand harsh environments, with the stainless steel or painted galvanised steel casing offering a long life.

Featuring a large, easy-to-read 30mm LCD backlit screen as standard, the D93 is built for ease of use to drive repeat business and increase revenue. This forecourt solution includes a range of payment methods – cashless, coin and token – to suit local markets.

The ACCURA QUBE electronic pre-set unit offers superb value and fast, accurate air and nitrogen inflation, saving time and money through increased efficiency, uptime, and safety; whilst reducing fatigue associated with inflating large, high-pressure tyres from flat.

This space-saving indoor inflator, made from high performance engineering plastic, can inflate up to 174 psi (12 bar) and is ideal for garages, dealerships, car hire companies, roadside assistance vehicles, NCT centres and factories; where inflation and deflation with repeatable accuracy and ease of use are essential.

PCL’s range of digital, linear and dial handheld inflators are designed for a wide range of applications, from car and truck tyres used in tyre shops and workshops, to high pressure models for commercial vehicles, aviation and forecourt service stations.

For Automechanika, the spotlight will be on the linear range following the launch of the new economy airlite eco Tyre Inflator, designed for comfort and ease of use. Robust, reliable, and accurate to 2psi, the MK4’s “little brother” is a cost-effective addition to the general trade or auto enthusiast’s tool kit. The market-leading Airforce MK4 will also be on display.

From PCL’s nitrogen range, the N72 Mobile Nitrogen Cart will be on display. Using PCL’s best-in-class ‘purge and fill’ software, it can convert four air filled tyres to over 95 per cent Nitrogen simultaneously with the touch of a button, and is powered by a rechargeable battery.

Last but not least, PCL also offers a wide variety of air tools, air accessories, tyre care and hose products.

PCL sales & marketing director, Lee Wright, said: “PCL is proud to boast one of the best design facilities in the world, which enables us to create designs to meet specific requirements.

“Automechanika is the perfect platform to introduce international visitors to solutions that will help them on the road to recovery and business as usual.

“We are bringing a carefully selected portfolio of products to Messe Frankfurt which we feel will facilitate customers to flourish post-pandemic. Please come and see how we can help in Hall 8, Stand H52.”

PCL will also be exhibiting at this year’s Auto Trade EXPO, which takes place alongside the CV Workshop EXPO from Saturday and Sunday, October 15-16 at the RDS Simmonscourt in Dublin.
