Metalworking Demo Truck Kicks Off 2018 Tour

The Eriez Metalworking Demo Truck, a 32'. Peterbilt diesel rig with a 24' equipment showroom, is once again travelling across North America to deliver hands-on training and education to customers and distributors. The 2018 tour got underway in late January and started on the West Coast.

The Metalworking Demo Truck houses many of Eriez' magnetic and vibratory material handling products, as well as equipment from the company's HydroFlow fluid recycling and fluid filtration lines. Demonstrations and workshops are tailored to assist participants in finding economical and effective solutions-right in their own parking lots-to their material handling, fluid recycling and filtration challenges.

The heavy duty rig serves as a state-of-the-art interactive learning center, complete with the latest technology, which enables team members to customize drawings and fulfill other customer requests on-demand. The truck's on-board database provides instant access to Eriez brochures, photos and video presentations.

The Eriez Metalworking Demo Truck has logged more than 130,000 miles since its 2014 maiden voyage, visiting 41 states and four Canadian provinces. Approximately 3,500 participants have climbed aboard over the course of the truck's 1,000-plus visits.

Eriez' Manager of Metalworking Distributor Sales Andrew Kloecker explained that in addition to demonstrating equipment on the truck, factory-trained staff can bring units inside customers' facilities for analysis. He said, "This mobile capability enables us to prove performance and show how Eriez technology can solve customers' unique challenges. For example, a fabricator can try out a range of SafeHold Lift Magnets to determine which one works best to move their steel parts, or a manufacturer can test their parts on a variety of Eriez conveyors to find the model best suited to their needs."
