Customers of Wyko, an Eriks Company, were given access to a wide range of technical know-how and advice at a special event in Carlisle in November 2007. The inaugural Know-How Makes a Difference Day, hosted by Pirelli Tyres in Carlisle, was a resounding success and saw over 500 customers visit over the course of the day.
The event took place in a large marquee with 35 of Wyko's key suppliers providing stands to construct a mini-exhibition. Among the products on display were bearings, seals, lubricants, drives, motors, hydraulics, pneumatics, tolerance rings and industrial hose. The electromechanical services and electronic services sides of the company were also on show, giving visitors a glimpse of the extent of Wyko's know-how.
Alongside the exhibition, visitors were able to attend a series of informative seminars that covered a range of topical issues including: energy saving through quality maintenance; cubed law – pumps, fans and their drives; motor management and efficiency; and reliability-centred maintenance, including root cause analysis.
Visitors also took part in some light-hearted activities, with the chance to test their driving skills in a Subaru Rally Car simulator as well as being able to try their luck at slot car racing.
