Posted by Catherine Ingleby on 13-Oct-2017 10:38:00

Rigorous demands of day-to-day jobs can put enormous strain on your equipment.

Challenges with difficult or awkward terrain mean equipment is regularly operating in conditions that lead to knocks, bumps, scratches or worse.

It is essential that your equipment is reliable and has the right features to cope with such demands. 

That is why we are pleased to announce the latest upgrade to the IMS Automatic Plus robotic lateral cutter.

The Automatic Plus now comes with a new and improved control unit and tablet PC, which offers the user increased reliability via the latest technology and design.

The improvements have been developed to tick all of the boxes in user friendliness.

The control unit and tablet PC features include:

  • An ergonomically designed control panel
  • A 10“ tablet PC with multi-touch display operational  with a gloved hand
  • Inbuilt hard drive allowing data to be transferred immediately from site
  • IP65 rating against dirt and splash water
  • Tablet comes with a 20-month warranty (excluding battery)

The Automatic Plus robotic cutter has been specially designed for cutting jobs on laterals from DN 80, right up to DN 250.  It has excellent manoeuvrability through all vertical, horizontal and even 90° elbows – it also gets into those tricky places, with small access points.

Not only that, the Automatic plus incorporates a whopping 50m of solid hose with a built-in cobra reel, making it durable, easy to use and simple to maintain.

But it does not stop there, as you might expect from us, we can provide full training on the equipment, for all first-time users, and remember, due to IMS cutters having replaceable components our dedicated UK repair centre can keep any downtime to a minimum.
