Since 1994, the New Zealand Hi-Tech Awards has been celebrating New Zealand's most successful, innovative and hi-tech companies. This year, Calibre’s Toroidal-Tilt Coupler is one of the finalists for New Zealand’s Most Innovative Hi-Tech Hardware Product!
Since its debut, the Toroidal-Tilt Coupler has been at the forefront of the industry - it is the first tilting hitch in history to incorporate curved ram technology. The Toroidal-Tilt is powered by a whole new patented circular hydraulic ram system developed by Calibre, a system which until now, has never been successful in the industry.
Among its patented circular hydraulic ram system, the Toroidal-Tilt has a number of technologically advanced features including;
100-degree tilt capacity
Smaller and more compact design reducing fuel costs
Constant torque at any output range ensuring maximum breakout force
A larger lifting power due to being hydraulic
Fewer moving parts making it easier to maintain
Easier serviceability - can be serviced and repaired whilst on the machine
Holds a sensitive touch response mechanism
Easier operational use
Front and rear locking coupler base
Fully certified lifting eye
Compatible with GPS systems
Compliant beyond the latest Australian safety standards
The winner of the Hi-Tech Awards will be announced on 25th May 2018.
