In addition to use in industrial air compressors and water pumps, WIKA’s newly launched automatic pressure switch model PSM-630 can also be used in industrial control and alarm applications.

WIKA PSM-630 also provides a manual On/Off knob through which the contact system can be locked in the open position, irrespective of the process pressure. This helps to maintain safety of the machine and workplace.

WIKA Instruments on 21st July 2022 launched Mobile Calibration Van for maintenance and repair at clients’ doorstep. WIKA’s Mobile Calibration Van will be initially available in areas around Chennai and Bangalore. Further, the company has plans to launch mobile calibration vans in Northern and Western India.

WIKA will be locating these mobile calibration vans at strategic locations to ensure coverage of maximum client locations. According to WIKA these mobile vans are suitable for large, multi-site companies that have lots of measuring equipment that needs to be continuously available 24 hours a day.

WIKA Mobile Calibration Vans to Reduce Transportation Costs and Available 24×7

WIKA mobile calibration vans have complete calibration laboratories setup and can travel to facilities to calibrate equipment that needs to be available continuously (24×7). This will help to optimise costs and shipping time. At the end of the calibration, a report will be provided which shows a measurement error. It measures the value before and after calibration, which helps the clients to determine the functionality and condition of the device.

These calibration vans will also be able to rule out any delays in instrument transportation.

Commenting on this launch Mr. Gaurav Bawa, said “Post sales Service and Quality of the products are always most important parameters for acceptability and dependence on any product. In our endeavour to give the best to the customers, we came up with the concept of mobile calibration vans—to take servicing to their doorstep, instead of them shipping the machine to us, which used to be the general practice”.
