Matthias Gruber proudly displays the gold medal.
-- Explaining their choice of the Minac Twin, the award jury cited the system’s energy efficiency, innovation and environmental friendliness.
‘It’s always an honour to receive an award such as this,’ says Matthias Gruber, managing director of EFD Induction Austria, who accepted the award diploma and gold medal. ‘It’s public and independent confirmation of what thousands of customers around the world already know: that the Minac is a powerful cost-cutting tool—a rugged, multi-application system that is safe and easy to use.’
The Minac Twin displayed at the Plovdiv fair was a 25/40 Twin model. This means each independent power output has a continuous power of 25 kW, and a maximum power output of 40 kW. ‘Having two independent outputs, each with its own control system, is what makes the Minac Twin so productive,’
says Gruber. ‘It is in effect two induction heating systems in one.’
The International Technical Fair is held every autumn in Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second largest city. The event, southeast Europe’s largest forum for new industrial technologies, this year attracted more than 1,250 exhibitors from 43 countries. ‘This year’s fair,’ says Gruber, ‘had green and advanced technologies as focus areas. So it is no surprise the Minac was so successful, as it is one of the greenest and most advanced industrial heating technologies on the market.’
