Telemecanique Altivar 08 nano speed drive scores first victory
Telemecanique Altivar 08, the most recent addition to the Altivar range, is a nano speed drive that is compact, easy to install, and very competitively priced. What is more, despite its small size, Telemecanique Altivar 08 contains Class B EMC filters that eliminate performance disturbances.
Although the product won't be officially released until early March 1999, these qualities have already landed a first contract, from Electrolux subsidiary Dito Sama. A world leader in the professional kitchen segment and major OEM in France, Dito Sama selected Telemecanique Altivar 08 over numerous competing drives after particularly rigorous testing. The drives will be used in Dito Sama's industrial kneading machines for making pizza dough.
This first contract included an order for several thousand units and represents an initial calling card with Sweden's Electrolux.
