Mavtech goes virtual in lieu of AAD

Mavtech Technologies is taking its Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) exhibition stand online this year in place of the physical stand it would have had at the September 2020 edition of the show, in line with trends from around the world.

AAD 2020 has been postponed to September 2022 as the coronavirus pandemic disrupted this year’s aerospace and defence trade show circuit – other big international aerospace and defence exhibitions have either been postponed or gone online, such as the Farnborough Air Show, Eurosatory and ILA Berlin Air Show.

As a result, many companies, such as Rheinmetall and Arquus, have chosen to create online versions of their stands, and this includes Mavtech.

The coronavirus pandemic has affected the way Mavtech does business globally due to travel restrictions, Mavtech Technologies CEO Denis Mavrokefalos explained. He said his company was looking forward to taking part in AAD 2020 and in spite of its postponement decided to continue with exhibition preparations and take their stand online. This way the company’s capabilities can be presented to customers who are not able to visit in person.

Mavtech Technologies has built up well over two decades of experience supporting various Central Tyre Inflation Systems (CTIS) and recently launched its own Tyre Pressure Control system. It has supported tyre pressure control systems on more than half a dozen vehicles, including the DCD Protected Mobility Husky and Denel Land Systems G6. “We are proud to be involved with most major OEMs in south Africa,” Mavrokefalos said.

The company has over the years designed, developed and supplied a long list of Vehicle Auxiliary Control Systems tailored to customers’ requests. These systems range from basic features such as air horns and steering wheel height adjustment locks to more complex Vehicle Drive Line Control Systems which include intelligent safety interlocking features. These features have been installed on a wide range of South African designed vehicles destined for the international market.

Door access control solutions are another specialty. Mavtech offers both pneumatic and hydraulic solutions, as per the requirement. Typically, the hydraulic option caters for heavy rear door ramp-hatch controls. Pneumatic solutions are available for swing door requirements. Blast and landmine locking features can be incorporated as an additional feature.
