The Eriez Metalworking Demo Truck, a 32-foot Peterbilt diesel rig with a 24-foot equipment showroom, is once again traveling across North America to deliver hands-on training and education to customers and distributors. The 2018 tour got underway in late January and starts with west coast stops.
The truck houses many of the company’s magnetic and vibratory material handling products as well as equipment from the Eriez’ HydroFlow fluid recycling and fluid filtration lines. Demonstrations and workshops are tailored to assist participants in finding economical and effective solutions, right in their own parking lots, to their material handling, fluid recycling and filtration challenges.
The heavy-duty rig serves as a state-of-the-art interactive learning center, complete with the latest technology to enable team members to customize drawings and fulfill other customer requests on-demand. The truck’s on-board database provides instant access to Eriez brochures, photos and video presentations.
The Metalworking Demo Truck has logged more than 130,000 miles since its initial send-off in 2014, visiting 41 states and four Canadian provinces. Approximately 3,500 participants have climbed aboard over the course of the truck’s more than 1,000 visits.
Eriez’ manager of metalworking distributor sales, Andrew Kloecker, explains that in addition to demonstrating equipment on the truck, factory-trained staff can bring units inside customers’ facilities for analysis. “This mobile capability enables us to prove performance and show how Eriez technology can solve customers’ unique challenges,” he says.
