Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc. said its new options make Dominator mechanics trucks even more productive and profitable.

The CAS2545 rotary screw air compressor, welder/generator and redesigned drawer sets have expanded the options available on all of IMT’s mechanics trucks.

The CAS2545 compressed air system is a 45-cfm, hydraulically driven, rotary screw compressor with a maximum operating pressure of 150 psi. The unit is a single-stage, pressure-lubricated compressor designed for mobile or industrial applications. The new compressor model provides high-volume air for use in air tools (i.e. jacks, saws, impact wrenches), tire service, sandblasting, painting and other mobile or stationary compressed-air needs.

“This unit is an ideal service solution for many markets,” said Tim Worman, product manager of commercial vehicles at IMT, “including construction, tire, utility, equipment dealers, rental and railroad.”

Rotary screw air compressors provide air on demand, are lightweight and deliver dry, cool air, which extends tool life by letting them run cooler and with less moisture interfering with the lubrication. All of the air compressor components are self-contained — protected by a steel canopy to help minimize outside elements, which may affect the productivity of the unit.

IMT manufactures a variety of reciprocating and rotary screw air compressors. The reciprocating lineup ranges from 35 to 110 cfm, and the rotary screw lineup ranges from 45 to 85 cfm.

IMT also now offers select welder/generators manufactured by Miller Electric Mfg. Co. as a purchase option with IMT mechanics trucks. IMT has entered into an agreement with its local Miller distributor to have the Miller units installed at IMT factory or shipped to the customer’s location.

“One of the standout features of IMT trucks is that we offer a turn-key solution instead of forcing the customer to jump from manufacturer to manufacturer trying to put a complete mechanics truck together,” Worman said. “This agreement with Miller further establishes IMT as a one-stop shop for commercial service vehicles.”

The welder/generators are available in either gas-powered or diesel-powered models and include Miller’s Bobcat, Legend and Trailblazer lines.

In addition to the new air compressor and welder/generator offerings, IMT also offers redesigned drawer sets as a purchase option with Dominator mechanics trucks.

“Field service technicians can be pretty tough on their equipment, and the new IMT drawer sets are designed to withstand the tough working conditions of a job site,” Worman said.

The drawer sets are available in 13-in., 26-in. and 39-in. widths and use 250-lb. slides across the entire range of drawers to meet the needs of the job at hand. Each drawer set is finished in a chip-resistant white powder coat for durability, and the drawer sets offer such features as individual locking drawers that also are removable, one-hand/two-point latches, a telescoping top shelf and drawer dividers.
