England´s Speedex Designs Ltd. has delivered one its largest caterpillar take-off machines to a polyethylene pipe maker in Thailand, Wiik & Hoeglund Public Co. Ltd.
Speedex said Wiik & Hoeglund, a subsidiary of Finland´s KWH Pipe Ltd., is the largest maker of high density PE pipe in Asia.
Each chain conveyor on one of the CT/1600 take-off machines is driven by its own digitally controlled AC drive, so the machine can run at an infinitely variable speed range, up to 40 inches a minute.
Speedex Designs was formed after IMH Group Ltd. bought the intellectual property of the closed-down Speedex (Engineering) Ltd. The business now is based at IMH Group´s factory in Wakefield, England.
