Based in the city of Graz, Austria, the company has hundreds of years of experience manufacturing chains and components. The first documented mention of its original forge in Brückl dates back to 1479 – since then, pewag has developed into one of the world’s leading chain manufacturers. Pewag’s success is due to its production of mature, quality products – invariably reflecting the latest state of the art. Its innovative and predominately patented products continue to set new standards in the chain industry.
As thinkers outside the box, pewag wants to make increasing use of technologies based on the roots of its expertise to promote the growth of its products. The aim is to create new ideas to revolutionize a traditional industry and allow it to keep growing. A good example of this is the ISWP Inline shortener, making its public debut at CeMAT 2018 in Hannover. An innovative new shortening element will soon be added to the pewag winner pro portfolio, with the goal of rounding out the company’s “winner pro” product portfolio. The ISWP Inline shortener, which is now in the final development stages, will be available soon. According to its developers, its outstanding feature will be tool-free positioning anywhere along the entire length of the chain. In addition, it will be possible to operate the shortening element with just one hand, making it even more user-friendly. It will furthermore not even be necessary to reduce the load capacity when using the shortening element. Visitors to CeMAT can view all the latest developments concerning the ISWP shortening element at the Austrian company’s exhibition stand.
