Putzmeister Produces New Video about their Unique OneTouchTM Control System for Concrete Boom Pumps

Putzmeister has produced a new video about the features and benefits concerning OneTouchTM - the company's special auto-controlled boom system for truck-mounted concrete pumps. OneTouchTM is the first industry-wide control system where a single joystick "automatically" moves all boom sections and slewing in tandem, while keeping the end hose level.

The seven-minute video goes into greater detail about the system using actual job site applications. It also provides testimonials from owners, operators and other on-site construction personnel. During the OneTouchTM video, viewers can see how only one joystick is required to control all end hose movements - whether forward, backward, up, down, right or left. This single joystick operation makes the unit easier to control compared to using different levers for each boom and rotate function. At the same time, OneTouchTM automatically keeps the end hose level during boom operation.

The patent-pending design of OneTouchTM is a major part of the new ErgonicTM Boom Control System (EBC). This system is loaded with features further highlighted on the new video. It demonstrates how the system additionally minimizes boom bounce, features built-in safety mechanisms, provides convenient trouble-shooting measures and uses existing MBC valves in conjunction with its newly designed software.

At the recent World of Concrete 2002 trade show in New Orleans, OneTouchTM was highlighted both on the Putzmeister 36Z-Meter unit and on the new videotape, displayed in the company's 16,100-square-foot booth - the largest exhibit at the show.

Requests for the new video in NTSC format can be directed to the Putzmeister America marketing department at (262) 886-3200. New literature is also available via either phone request or downloading from the company's Web site.
