Air Radiators recognised as Victoria’s Leader in Innovative Product Development 

Air Radiators were awarded the inaugural Leader in Innovative Product Development and Commercialisation Award last night at the 2019 Victorian Government Manufacturing Hall of Fame Gala event in Docklands, Melbourne.

The Gala theme was centred on the Industrial Evolution highlighting the resilience of Victorian manufacturing and the people who drive the industry, supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs.

With Air Radiators’ focus on continuous improvement and progressing with Industry 4.0 and advanced manufacturing practices, the company has invested in its innovative product development through its new patented Alu Fin technology.

Air Radiators General Manager, Jamie Baensch, said the award recognised Air Radiators’ commitment to survive and grow as an Australian Manufacturer. 

“New product development in traditional markets such as heat exchanger manufacture is critical to our survival as an Australian manufacturer against the head winds of globalisation,” Jamie Baensch said.

“Coming up with a new idea is one thing – getting it to market is another.

“This award recognises our efforts to remain a proud, viable Australian manufacturer creating jobs and value for the Australian economy,” he said.

Alu Fin technology was developed and is manufactured in-house at Air Radiators, being the next generation in heat transfer products with its unique design developed to solve current industry limitations.

“Our new Alu Fin product is a game changer in industrial engine cooling and is already creating growth in both our local and export markets,” Jamie Baensch said.

“All credit and thanks go to the Air Radiators team who made our Alu Fin product a reality.”

Minister for Jobs, Innovation and Trade, Mr Martin Pakula attended the event and highlighted the Victorian manufacturing industry’s contribution of more than $30 billion to the state’s economy each year while employing 280,000 people.

“We know that recognising the outstanding achievements of the state’s manufacturing industry is important, and the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame Awards are a vital part of this,” Mr Martin Pakula said.

Led by Air Radiators’ Business Development and Marketing Manager, Jove Manev, the patented Alu Fin product range has been showcased to the company’s market sectors at various tradeshows, both nationally and internationally, including Bauma in Munich, Germany, Avalon Airshow here in Victoria, InnoTrans in Berlin, Germany and LandForces in Adelaide to name a few.

The Hall of Fame has been running since 2001 and recognises Victorian manufacturers who have made an ongoing impact on the industry through innovation, investment and trade and supply chain connections.

Air Radiators was inducted into the Manufacturing Hall of Fame in 2006.

Bauma exhibit sees success for Air Radiators

Air Radiators’ exhibit at the week long trade show, Bauma 2019 in Munich, Germany last month proved to be successful for the company. 

The show allowed us to exhibit its new product, Alu Fin – a lightweight, durable product created to solve current industry limits – and showcase Air Radiators capabilities in the construction and mining industries to some of the market’s biggest players.  

Key decision makers and potential customers were able to see a complete radiator assembly with an Alu Fin core on the Air Radiators stand, as well as samples of the individual aluminium tubes.

Launching Alu Fin as the next generation in heat transfer products was Air Radiators focal point for the show, promoting our singe tube technology and its increased thermal performance, greater design flexibility and increased service life. 

Prior to the show, our representatives also embarked on a trade mission, visiting key customers throughout Europe. 

The mega show proved its status as the world’s largest and leading construction and mining trade show, with 3,400 exhibitors spanning the 605,000m2 exhibition space. 

Over 580,000 visitors from around the world were attracted to the biennial show.

Air Radiators set to showcase new product Alu Fin at world’s leading construction and mining exhibition

Air Radiators set to showcase Alu fin product at bauma 2019

Air Radiators is showcasing their new patented Alu Fin product range at Bauma 2019 – the world’s leading trade show for construction and mining – in Munich, Germany from the 8th to the 14th of April.

As the next generation in heat transfer products, the Alu Fin range involve unique designs developed to solve current industry limitations.

Being both lightweight and durable, Alu Fin heat transfer packages are constructed with flexibly mounted individual finned aluminium tubes. Replacing traditional bolt-on and fully brazed heat exchangers, Alu Fin allow greater design flexibility and increased service life.

Alu Fin offer solutions to the traditional limits of the industry ensuring highest levels of durability, resistance to fouling and resilience to twisting, vibration and elimination of leaks.

Business Development and Marketing Manager, Jove Manev said the single tube technology allows for increased thermal performance with Alu Fin packages being 20% lighter than traditional radiators.

“There is no more compromising when space is constrained,” Jove Manev said.

“The individually finned tubes allow for greater customised designs and remove the limitation of the single plane “mono block” core that has been in use since radiators were developed.

“Alu Fin means around the corner and circular installations are no longer a dream, allowing us to design the radiator to fit your installation, not the other way around,” he said.

Alu Fin heat exchangers can be assembled in low density pitch for dirt laden, high fouling environments that allow greater air flow deeper into the core to maintain thermal performance. Alu Fin can alternatively be assembled in high density pitch, providing greater heat transfer per unit of area translating to a smaller, lighter package. The Alu Fin product range is an optimal solution for construction and mining applications.

Sample Alu Fin product will be on display at Bauma (starting today) on the Air Radiators exhibit in Hall A5, Stand 112.
