In 1986 Sintech be­came the sole S.A dis­trib­u­tor for Well­man of the USA.

Their ex­per­tise sig­nif­i­cantly was as an es­tab­lished supplier of ma­te­ri­als for Al­li­son Trans­mis­sions, but they were also at the fore­front of the de­vel­op­ment of the mod­ern “wet brake” ma­te­ri­als. In the be­gin­ning 5,000 hours life was the norm but with sig­nif­i­cant R+D in­vest­ment this is cur­rently 20,000 hours.

In 1994 Sintech be­came the sole S.A. dis­trib­u­tor for Carlisle Brakes. Carlisle is the orig­i­nal equipment supplier of “Dry” ser­vice and emer­gency brakes for the ma­jor­ity of earth­mov­ing and min­ing equipment in­clud­ing HI­TACHI.

To­day Carlisle are the prin­ci­pal supplier to HI­TACHI for their “Dry” and “Wet” brakes as well as trans­mis­sion discs for their range of rigid dump trucks. As Carlisle’s lo­cal dis­trib­u­tor Sintech main­tains sig­nif­i­cant stocks of new brakes, spare parts and fric­tion discs to sup­port these ve­hi­cles.

In ad­di­tion they are able to pro­vide HI­TACHI with a ser­vice ex­change or brake re­build pro­gramme through their mod­ern work­shop.

The work­shop was de­signed in con­sul­ta­tion with Carlisle and our tech­ni­cians are fac­tory qual­i­fied. We of­fer full trace­abil­ity from the sup­ply of new brake through­out its life which can mean sev­eral re­builds, this way we can mon­i­tor trends and brake life and con­sult on im­prove­ments, where ap­pro­pri­ate. We have an open in­vi­ta­tion to our work­shop to all cus­tomers, both cur­rent and fu­ture, as we believe when you see how it can be done you will not want to go any­where else.
