Bimba (University Park, IL) has announced the release of the latest in its cutting edge, compact air cylinders – the Blue and Improved Flat-1. The “Blue (as in New) and Improved” slogan designates Bimba products that have been redesigned to offer enhancements applying the most recent advances in design technology. The Blue and Improved Flat-1 features 19 new product enhancements such as:
- Permanent grease lubrication.
- An improved bumper design.
- Hard chrome-plated piston rods with an option for stainless steel.
- For applications in which space is tight, the Blue and Improved Flat-1 offers durability and precision, across a breadth of cylinder options.
To celebrate the release of the Blue and Improved Flat-1, Bimba is offering its customers an opportunity to win a trip for two to Pack Expo 2017 (September 25-27) in Las Vegas. To qualify, contestants must submit fun photos of the new Flat-1 character in amusing and interesting places (view gallery for a photo of the Flat-1 character, Flat Charlie). The customer who submits the picture of the Flat-1 character with the most original photo placement will receive two free airline tickets and three nights complimentary lodging at the Mirage Hotel. The highlight of the trip will be a visit to Dig This Las Vegas, where the Bimba team will present the winners the opportunity to operate heavy construction equipment to “flatten” various objects such as cars in a large “sandbox for adults.”
