Pneumatic and hydraulic solutions

First Quarter 2020 Pneumatic systems & components

Berntel is expanding its footprint by offering its extensive range of pneumatic products through the Bearings International (BI) branch network. Acquired in 2014 as a complementary company to pneumatic and hydraulic automation solutions provider Ernest Lowe, Berntel expands the Hudaco Group’s industrial offering in pneumatic, hydraulic, vacuum, process and automation solutions. It also manufactures its own pneumatic cylinders, as well as designing, building, and commissioning control systems, including PLC programming.

In addition, Berntel represents a range of well-known brands, such as JELPC, JORC Industrial (condensate drain management), VMECA (water-free units), Belef (actuation), Ober (air tools, air motors, and automation), Piab (vacuum technology), and BOGE (compressors and dryers). Target markets are food and beverage, automotive, general industry, sugar, pulp and paper, OEMs, machine builders, and agriculture.

Looking to 2020 GM, Neil Champion reveals that Berntel will introduce its latest Ober agency, an Italian designer and manufacturer of portable pneumatic tools, motors, automated machinery, and systems for drilling, tapping, threading and screwing, including power screwdrivers with electronic torque control. Another new agency is BOGE, a German producer of compressors for over 110 years. The Piab agency has also extended Berntel’s offering into smart vacuum solutions. BI’s smart solutions range from the efficient generation of clean, dry compressed air to condensate drain management, pneumatic, vacuum, process, and industrial components, and designing and programming control systems with PLC integration. Being part of the broader Hudaco Group allows BI to leverage synergies across a broad range of companies, meaning it can offer a complete product basket through its extensive branch network countrywide.
