Ski Service & Rental

New product to appear at ISPO

Wintersteiger, a company that builds special machines in Ried im Innkreis, will once again be presenting a number of new products at ISPO 2014, which is the world's largest sport product trade show and takes place in Munich.

The new Omega stone and belt grinding machine means the idea of complete flexibility for every customer can now be extended to include manual ski servicing as well, while the company's latest products, the Hotronic heating and drying systems for shoes, boots and gloves, will also be exhibited as the BootDoc (BD) concept "Customisation for feet" (C4F), which revolves around individualized ski boot fitting.

Following the launch of the Discovery, a ski service machine with a modular design, last year, Wintersteiger has chosen to continue down the modular route and extend it to manual ski service machines too. The Omega series of stone and belt grinding machines offers customers the opportunity to upgrade machines with equipment packages. Wolfgang Berghammer, head of Wintersteiger's Sports business unit, justified this decision by saying: "Our many years of experience indicate that the needs of our customers vary widely when it comes to manual grinding machines in particular. These differences have presented us with a challenge that we're happy to take on, and the Omega is the beginning of individualization in manual ski servicing."

The Omega equipment packages, which customers can opt for depending on their specific requirements, include a structure package, a feed package, and a spray and filter package. The "racing plus package" for professional racing grinding includes all of these packages.

Wintersteiger's machines cover all levels and range from an entry-level belt grinding machine to a basic stone grinding machine, the stone and belt grinding combi machine, to models for racing grinding. Tried and tested components from the automatic machine line have been built in and features of the Wintersteiger race grinding machine, the Race NC, have also been incorporated.
