It increases efficiency, accuracy, safety and user friendliness for all our customers,” said Andreas Gerstenberger, head of the Industrial Fluid Solutions global business area. “This expansion to CrimpCloud showcases the evolution of building quality hose assemblies for our distributors and customers.”The user-friendly system features an intuitive touch-screen panel that greatly improves control over testing parameters. In addition, the Smart Test Bench technology offers state-of-the-art reporting in different formats, back up testing data for easy retrieval, and the ability to adapt to a customer’s hydraulic or industrial hose testing needs. Continental’s CrimpCloud technology was launched in 2018 and was created to provide customers with instantaneous updates to the crimper, thereby reducing costly downtime and offering a new level of enhanced efficiency, safety, quality and speed to our customers operations.
