development which largely negates the need for manual operation,
relying on built-in automation to measure wheel size, balancing values
(processing optimum) and eccentricity of tyre, rim and wheel. The wheel
is even guided into position by an exclusive automatic lift called Zero
This year’s show also presents the first chance for the tyre trade to

With estimates that shipping costs typically represent

First time exhibitor Vortex Exhaust Technology aims to simplify the Exhaust Market, reduce
stockholding and bring additional revenue streams to Garages and Fitting Stations.
Remember the good old days when a few exhaust parts covered the vast majority of the cars that required a new exhaust. Well, they are back.
All that is needed is a new approach and the stocking of a revolutionary patented product – The Vortex exhaust.
Capable of being fitted to almost anything with an internal combustion engine Vortex exhausts can enable fitters to deal with around 99% of
all vehicles coming through the door, with very little stock investment.
Vortex is not a range of “freeflow” silencers, nor is it a “me-too” replacement for the original equipment or aftermarket product already on the
car. In fact it’s not like a conventional silencer at all. The Vortex products really are unique. The clever, patented internal designs of the Vortex
exhaust creates a turbine effect inside the silencer, causing a vacuum which literally sucks gases out of the engine allowing it to breathe more easily,
and burn fuel more efficiently.
As a result all Vortex exhausts are guaranteed to deliver more power and more torque, yet at the same time reduce emissions and, best of all,
will reduce fuel consumption, typically by around 7%-10%! And all without any re-mapping required!
Vehicles fitted with Turbo chargers suffer noticeably less turbo-lag once a Vortex is fitted and the smoother running engines (turbo or non-turbo)
always deliver fuel economy improvements.
From boy racer to family car, van, pick-up, 4WD or classic car Vortex has a range that will suit all-comers.
The ability to weld stainless steel is a must, and installers must have a pipe bender as all Vortexexhausts are custom built.
With no need to hold massive stocks – a few Vortex exhausts can cover many applications – and with full training given to would-be Vortex
dealers, a revenue opportunity is there for those that want to take it.
Garages and fitting stations looking for new revenue streams could do a lot worse than take a fresh look at the exhaust market.
Profil” deals with production and wholesale of retreaded car tires for
all types of cars: personal, delivery and off-road ones, in many sizes
and many patterns of the tread, both winter and summer types.
The retreading, also called the regeneration, consists in placing a new
layer of the tread on the tire and strengthening the tire sides. The final
product is a tire whose parameters do not differ from the parameters of
a new tire (equally durable) and which is in fact more preferred in the
world taking into consideration environment protection (recycling)
The “Profil” company regenerates mainly tires for personal, delivery
and off-road cars, in typical sizes: 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18 inch
ones, as they are the most popular sizes on the market. The technology
of producing the treaded tire and the tire itself are characterized by
high quality, durability and good use, which is especially important
taking into account the safety of driving. Apart from the abovementioned
features, it has much lower price than the new tire. Our
company buys the highest quality products from well-established
producers of rubber mixes and from foreign tire providers.
Since the beginning of its operation the “Profil” company has paid
special attention to the quality of produced tires. A number of tests
carried out before and after the regeneration allows us to produce a
faultless tire which is ready to be used.

Winning the NTDA TAFF Tyre & Aftermarket Supplier of the Year
award has brought even more attention to the technical expertise of
our TPMS programme. As we are progressing with our training
programmes all across the UK we are receiving more and more
positive feedback about the expertise we are able to demonstrate
and share with our customers. The response has been greatly
appreciated by everyone involved with Autogem.
A common theme has been the ability of tyre traders and garages
to not only retain business which would have been lost without the
right equipment, but to also maximise the tools for greater revenues.
In 2011 we were predominantly informing customers about our
programme, so far in 2012 we have been in full swing training
them. This support will be supplemented by the introduction of
further technical TPMS product in the coming months.
All in all 2012 is looking like another busy year for Autogem
where we will be exhibiting at 8 shows and dedicating 25-30
evenings to training and educational courses for our customers. Our
mantra remains, think TPMS think Autogem.

Haweka Provide Cost Saving Solutions
at Brityrex International
Haweka UK, the world’s leading
independent manufacturer of wheel
balancing accessories and commercial
vehicle alignment equipment, are
showing their comprehensive range at
The Haweka stand will showcase the
company’s complete range of
commercial vehicle alignment equipment
including the all-new Axis 4000. This
fully computerised system can now
include a complete data set of truck
wheel alignment settings to enable real
time comparison of actual readings
against manufacturers specifications. The greatest advantage of the
Haweka range is speed. There is no other wheel alignment machine that
allows the operator to measure a twin axle semi-trailer in 10 minutes. The
Haweka range is able to do this thanks to its patented wheel clamps,
which are attached to the wheel rim by means of powerful magnetic feet
(with additional grab arms for aluminium rims) and the measurement can
begin immediately. These unique clamps are used on all Haweka aligners.
John Pullin of Haweka UK said: “In today’s tough economic climate the
importance of correct vehicle alignment cannot be over emphasised. The
equipment makes it possible for the commercial vehicle owner/operator to
easily and quickly unlock the savings available from reduced fuel
consumption and tyre ware. A one degree misalignment on one axle
could increase fuel consumption by around 5%.”

how to reduce the running costs of your commercial fleet visit Haweka UK
