The Bahco exclusive bandsaw calculator has been for years an invaluable tool for the industrial cutting industry specialists. We are now pleased to introduce you to the next generation of the application.
Bahco is renowned its high-performance cutting tools in a wide variety of materials and applications. For decades, users of Bahco cutting tools have relied on their performance and durability. In 1969 Bahco pioneered a new technique for cutting metal, combining spring steel characteristics with wear-resistant, high-speed steel called bi-metal and was the first tool maker to introduce bi-metal hacksaws.
In 1862, the Swede Göran Fredrik Göransson founded the companies Högbo Stål and Jernwerks AB to produce high-quality steel. These companies formed the basis of Bahco and made us a leading global manufacturer of high-quality cutting tools.
Alpine accelerates its ascent to the highest level of motorsport by entering a LMP1 car next season.
Competing in Endurance since 2013, the Signatech Alpine team has won two European titles, two world championships and has scored three LMP2 class victories in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
More ambitious than ever and resolutely forward-looking, Alpine will be one of the major actors in the top-flight category of the FIA World Endurance Championship under the Alpine Endurance Team from 2021.
Starting from the 2021 season, Groupe Renault’s team becomes Alpine F1®Team, equipped with a Renault E-TECH hybrid engine.
Already recognized for its records and successes in endurance and rallying, the Alpine name naturally finds its place in the high standards, prestige and performance of Formula 1.
The Alpine brand, a symbol of sporting prowess, elegance and agility, will be designated to the chassis and pay tribute to the expertise that gave birth to the A110. For Alpine, this is a key step to accelerate the development and influence of the brand. The team’s engine will continue to benefit from Groupe Renault’s unique expertise in hybrid powertrains and its E-Tech name will be retained.
MAKING PLIERS SINCE 1856
Bahco has been manufacturing pliers since 1856. Over the last 160 years, we have refined and improved the steel alloy used in our side-cutting pliers, in order to strike the perfect balance between resiliency and toughness, which are crucial for the long life of our tools.
For over a century and a half, we have tried and tested different manufacturing processes, continuously innovating and investing in producing the best possible pliers.
Today, we are pleased to announce that the feedback and end-user input we got during the last BEUN - Bahco End-User Network - sessions, as part of the scientific Bahco ERGO™ process, has led us to new fantastic pliers! Designed to deliver safe, reliable and sustained performance in the hands of trade professionals.
The Alpine Elf Europa Cup began the second half of the season with three races at circuit Paul Ricard. After a Friday disrupted by strong storms and wind gusts, the weekend ended up with Jean-Baptiste Mela and Laurent Hurgon dominating the debates on the track. In the general classification, Jean-Baptiste Mela now has a 35-point lead from Laurent Hurgon with 44 points left to race for this season. Third, Mateo Herrero now has Pierre Sancinena just one point behind while the battle for fifth place is still wide-open
It was a great weekend for our driver Gosia Rdest. But it didn’t start well…. The qualis were postponed to Saturday. Heavy rain and heavy fog on the track made it impossible to race. We had to wait to the day after. However, the mechanics worked hard to have the car ready to race.
The Saturday, after the rainfall during the night, we went on Q1 on rain tires. The quickest lap Gosia could do gave P11. Second qualification, taking place just after the first one, Gosia drove with a change of tires, which turned out to be a mistake. The three cars that made this choice took last places in the qualifying. Gosia finished on P16.
It was not a good start at all, but on the two races that happened on Saturday she ended up in P6. Great fight, great overtakes and full of satisfaction!
On Sunday, there was just one race where again she finished on P6. Despite the difficult starting position after qualifying, Gosia managed to score a few points in each race! Very dynamic weekend. We are very proud of her! We can’t hardly wait to see her on the next race!
The fourth and final round of the season will take the Alpine Elf Europa Cup to the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve at Portimão (Portugal) from October 30th to November 1st.
