Following the release of the H36, H46 and H47, Hamaton has teamed up with ATEQ once again to launch the new H56 TPMS tool. According to the company, the H56 boasts the same great features as ATEQ’s all-in-one VT56 but comes with free software updates for five years (which cease if you upgrade to the all-sensor option). The five-year deal offers four more years than its counterpart.
Hamaton has expanded the valve stem range for its EU-Pro Hybrid 3.5 to include a graphite version. The new Graphite Clamp-In valve boasts the same features and benefits as its alloy and black counterparts.
Hamaton’s latest TPMS sensor generation, the EU-Pro Hybrid 3.5 possesses a technologically advanced feature – a multiprotocol app. According to the company, the multiprotocol-app contains pre-programmed protocols for many popular German vehicles, including BMW, Mercedes and Smart. Sensors come ready to install – additional programming isn’t necessary. Therefore, garages can dramatically reduce the time it takes to fit sensors, which will be hugely beneficial during busy tyre changeover seasons.
Hamaton launched its EU-Pro Hybrid 3.5 universal programmable sensor at Autopromotec at the end of May. The EU-Pro Hybrid 3.5 combines three new technologies in a lightweight yet durable housing, weighing just 26 grams thanks to a laser-welded rear cover.
Hamaton is exhibiting at Autopromotec – the international automotive aftermarket trade show – in Bologna from 22-26 May. During the five-day event, Hamaton is launching two TPMS products on a brand-new stand.
Hamaton Ltd has announced plans to launch a new three-in-one replacement valve. This innovative TPMS valve is designed to fit both of Schrader’s parallel (‘6-207’) and right-angled (‘6-210’) fitments, as well as accommodating for the high-speed version of the valve (‘6-210H’). Therefore, the new 6-213B combined valve not only benefits from a high-speed rating, but also has nearly double the compatibility with direct TPMS-enabled vehicles.
As the growth of TPMS continues across Europe, and with an increasing number of cars fitted with sensors requiring maintenance when tyres are replaced, it is important for businesses to be equipped with tools that make dealing with TPMS as quick and easy as possible.
During the busy tyre change-over seasons, it is vital that TPMS sensor replacement is made as quick and easy as possible for servicing technicians – says sensor-maker Hamaton, which adds that its Hamaton’s OE-R sensor is “an economical solution that allows garages to save a substantial amount of time and money when it comes to sensor replacement”.
With the weather getting colder, some motorists are now changing over to Winter tyres, meaning a considerable amount of TPMS sensor valves will require servicing. This creates the opportunity to bring in more business for garages and servicing centres – and as more and more new cars on the road are fitted with TPMS, this number is increasing every year.
TPMS specialist Hamaton Ltd states that since opening last November, its North American headquarters – Hamaton Inc. – has achieved strong first-year growth. This growth, it adds, has accelerated rapidly in recent months following the acquisition of a number of new customers.
An internal promotion sees Rachel Banton become commercial director of Whetstone-based TPMS and tyre valve specialist Hamaton Ltd. In her new role, Banton is expected to assist with the planned expansion of Hamaton’s European operations.
