Take Advantage of the New Small Business $20K Equipment Write Off

The 2015 Budget has offered a lifeline to small businesses looking to purchase new equipment before the end of the financial year.

Small businesses with a turnover less than $2M can benefit from the immediate write off of equipment purchased up to a value of $20K under the new budget.  For these businesses, new equipment, electrical appliances and technology can mean efficiency gains and business growth. 

The future industrial landscape will see leading companies harness the power of emerging technologies to ensure future growth, turnover and profits in the long-term.

In fact, according to a 2014 survey of manufacturers, 73% of manufacturing executives plan to make capital investments in manufacturing technology to achieve their growth goals.

Whether you’re working within an industrial or commercial environment, in maintenance or production, the competitive economic landscape means companies must make efficient use of their labour.  As a result, companies are looking to innovative products and technologies to provide the best of both worlds – productivity and efficiency gains.

Common issues found within remote area fixing or maintenance on mine sites can include anything from being unable to use compressed air, finding hand rivet tools too slow and cumbersome, to being unable to pull up more structural rivets such as stainless steel. Therefore, in rugged and often difficult to access locations commonplace in mining and maintenance environments, blind rivets can be desirable to use as they withstand vibration but are problematic to install.

Advanced technology providing an assembly solution

However, effortless, high-speed fastening is possible from a portable and convenient cordless tool that offers not only great freedom of movement, but works off a powerful, Li-Ion battery that ensures a long battery life and less energy consumption.

STANLEY Engineered Fastening’s POP PB2500 battery operated tool brings the latest cordless technologies to blind rivet setting performance for use wherever and whenever it's needed. Users can install rivets at assembly stations where no air supply at close to the same assembly speeds as when using compressed air tools is available.
