Starting in September, VACON, one of Europe’s leading innovators in ac variable speed drive technology, will be touring the UK and Ireland with a demonstration truck equipped with a comprehensive selection of the company’s latest products. The tour will not only provide opportunities for drives users around the country to examine these products and see them in action, but also to discuss their own specific requirements with VACON’s experts.
