Work simplified by technological advance

Innovation and technology are central aspects in the work of TechnoAlpin which is why the machines and products made by TechnoAlpin are continually setting new standards in the snowmaking market. When it comes to sourcing special components from other manufacturers, the focus is also on the latest technology and uncompromising quality standards. This is why the company has been working closely with MENNEKES for many years. The global company supplies components which are installed by TechnoAlpin on supply points and machines. 

MENNEKES has now developed a new contact sleeve solution for its industrial plugs and sockets which are already fitted by TechnoAlpin as standard. It is called X-CONTACT and offers numerous advantages. The contact sleeves of plugs and sockets are relevant to the quality of the closure of the contacts. They need to guarantee both secure closing action and easy handling. The innovative X-CONTACT boasts special design features and impressive material properties which make it considerably safer and easier to work with TechnoAlpin products. 

The force required to plug and unplug connectors is very high due to the strength of the currents used in snow guns. It may occasionally be necessary for two people to carry out the disconnection process. The outstanding feature of the X-Contact technology in the industrial plugs and sockets used by TechnoAlpin is its great ease of movement which reduces the force required for plugging and unplugging by half. This makes it much easier for the snowmaking staff to handle the snow guns – even with the high current levels.

Facilitating the operation of the machines and guaranteeing health and safety at work are central aspects for TechnoAlpin in the further development of its products. Working with reliable and innovative partners enables the continuous optimization of the entire snowmaking technology.
