Sicam
The specialist all around professional tire service
Sicam shows current new developments at the Automechanika

  • Tire service systems for all workshop requirements
  • New: high-end tire changing systems Falco Evo 622/628
Sicam develops and produces tire changing systems and wheel balancers for workshop requirements. Tire service systems by Sicam are known to be reliable, safe and easy to handle while offering a good price-performance-ratio. Moreover, Sicam also offers wheel alignment systems and AC service units.

Current product highlights for the Automechanika
With the new tire changing system Falco Evo 622, Sicam introduces a new series of especially robust devices for the use on passenger cars. The easy operational concept and a new clamping system make precise and gentle working possible. The development of the tilting back pole and the highly rigid G-frame was based on the computer-assisted finite element method. This makes them extremely rigid and dimensionally stable, and the mounting head of the Falco Eve 622 is thus always held exactly in position to also work on UHP and RFT tires.

The new 4 position adjustable bead breaker and a revised clamping turntable increase the speed by up to 40 percent. And also the tire inflation device saves 25 per cent of time.

Even smaller details, such as the easy-to-find tray for the tire tool, and a universally adjustable holder for lubricants have been improved compared with the previous generation. The speed of the clamping turntable is precisely controllable with a pedal. Especially worth mentioning is the 1ph/230V version with motor inverter drive system that makes a continuous speed control and thus an extremely precise positioning possible. This is an important feature before the background of an increasing prevalence of tire pressure control systems. Moreover, the Falco Evo 628 by Sicam offers a clamping capacity of up to 28". The Sicam warranty program "Get4Get" warrants up to 4 years for the new products.

Tire service specialist since 1975
The Sicam company was founded in 1975 in the small town of Correggio in the Emilia-Romagna region and from the very beginning specialized in tire service devices for the vehicle workshops and tire dealers as well as fast fitters. The first tire changing system for passenger cars that Sicam developed and produced entered the market in 1977 and was followed in 1982 by a solution that also allowed the changing of tires on commercial vehicles. Since 1985, Sicam has also been producing wheel balancers. In 2007, Sicam was integrated in the Bosch Automotive Aftermarket Business Unit Automotive Service Solutions.

OTC Diagnostics systems, emissions analyzer and a broad range of special maintenance and repair tools

  • New: Mobile diagnostics system D750 Genisys Touch with automatic vehicle identification
  • New: Emissions analyzers E060 and E070
  • Special tools for the Ford Model T already in 1927
As the manufacturer of diagnostics systems and a broad product range of special tools, the traditional American brand OTC is established today in many markets. Customers value the good price-performance ratio, the reliable quality, and the robustness and easy handling of OTC products.

The range of OTC special tools is constantly expanded in cooperation with automotive manufacturers and includes special tools for all vehicle components – from wheels and tires, to damping and steering to brakes, engine and transmission.

Product highlights at the Automechanika
The new diagnostics system D750 Genisys Touch will celebrate its premiere in the European market at the Automechanika. With the mobile workshop device the vehicle can be identified by means of the chassis number. It is operated via a 10" touchscreen and connected wirelessly to an interface module that establishes the connection to the OBD diagnostic plug in the vehicle. The newly developed software HUB with intuitive user interface offers extensive vehicle coverage and diagnostic depth. Moreover, the mechatronics technician receives up-to-date service and repair information and is guided through troubleshooting and component tests. Data updates are downloaded regularly via the Internet.

In the area of emissions, OTC will introduce two new emissions analyzers at the Automechanika, the E060 for gasoline motors and the E070 for diesel motors. Both are currently available in the Italian market and supplement the existing generation of OTC emissions analyzers, Stargas 898 and 495/01. Both devices are mobile versions that are controlled as stand-alone devices by radio transmission via a PC. The introduction of the emissions analyzers E060/070 in other European countries will follow successively.

With the start of the Automechanika, the new website www.otctools.com will go online with a large amount of information on OTC products around vehicle diagnostics as well as special tools and workshop equipment.

OTC – an established traditional American brand
OTC is rooted in the US: with the increasing number of automobiles on US-American roads, a growing demand for tools for their repair emerged. Already in 1925, Reuben Kaplan founded the Owatonna Tool Company – OTC. In 1927, OTC developed the special tools that were necessary to repair the planetary gear of the popular Ford Model T. During the 1930s, OTC sold its tools directly to farmers and workshops all over the US. In 1985, OTC was acquired by the diagnostics and service specialist SPX Service Solutions that continued to market the established brand and expanded the product range especially in the area of diagnostics systems. Since December 2012, the OTC brand is part of the Bosch Automotive Aftermarket Business Division. Bosch Automotive Service Solutions plans on keep expanding the OTC product range continuously also in the future.

Moreover, the service center receives information and notes regarding the independent installation of updates via the Remote Software.

Specialist with American roots
Kent-Moore Corporation, the manufacturer of special tools, from Warren, Michigan, founded the subsidiary Robinair in 1956 with the task of developing tools for the repair of technical devices. With the increasing popularity of air conditioning, both for homes and automobiles, Robinair soon focused on service devices in this area, and was able to offer the most complete product range in the entire industry by 1960. In the following decades, Robinair kept leading the way in developing technical milestones. In 1979, the company patented the first refrigerant recovery and recharging station. In 1985, the first A/C service unit with microprocessor control functions entered the market. A machine for the entire A/C service on vehicles with the cooling agent R134a was introduced in 1992. The company kept improving the safety and environmental friendliness of the special tools in many steps of development. In 2006, a Robinair model was the first one to fulfil the demanding industry standard SAE J2788. In 2010, Robinair was granted the global license to operate the AC1234 with the new cooling agent R-1234yf. Since December 2012, the Robinair brand is part of the Automotive Service Solution Business Unit within Bosch Automotive Aftermarket.

With the start of the Automechanika, the new website www.robinair.com will go online, providing easy access to all information regarding Robinair A/C service devices and to their appropriate equipment.
