Autoguide Equipment and ABC Anchors are delighted to be exhibiting again at Plantworx this year from 11-13th June.
When we last exhibited in 2017, visitors were especially interested in our range of vibrating post installers. We previously demoed our Midi Postmaster, but this year we will also be demoing our Maxi Postmaster, which can install posts up to 10" diameter.
Autoguide Equipment and ABC Anchors would like to thank everyone that joined us at the Confor Woodland Show last week. We hope you all enjoyed the show as much as we did; we were definitely glad that there was slightly less rain and mud than the last trade show we attended!
If you saw us at the show, you probably noticed that we are celebrating our 40th anniversary this September! We have been celebrating in a number of ways, including building a special edition Midi Postmaster, as well as handing out some free gifts at the stand. We are happy to report that our gift bags, including a bottle of ‘Ruby’ port were very well received, although some of the staff here are a little disappointed about the lack of leftovers!
Autoguide Equipment recently sponsored a project at the University of Bath within the Mechanical Engineering Department. As part of the third year of study, students undertake a group design and business project to develop an idea, design a product and produce a business plan. Autoguide have had an idea for a small self-propelled machine that is capable of installing screw piles so proposed the idea and two teams of 6 students worked against each other to develop the best design.
The students recently presented their work at the Design Exhibition where we were very impressed with their work. The detailed design showed how much effort and work they had put into the project, with some very promising results. The design team now await the detailed reports to decide whether either design is feasible for production!
Autoguide's range of Torque Heads for Screw Pile installation include both hand-held and excavator versions. We also design and manufacture custom and large Torque Heads such as the 210XV, the largest in Europe.
These market leading torque heads are ideal for installing screw piles from our sister company ABC Anchors.
We're excited to be completing this project in the Autumn! Another one to add to our collection of bespoke machines - www.autoguideequipment.co.uk/bespoke/Autoguide Equipment Ltd have recently purchased a new Wacker Neuson ET90 midi excavator, they will modify and re-engineer the machine into a bespoke compact piling rig. Autoguide chose the ET90 based on the best option available at the present time. Thank you to Rob and his team.
