“Our first contacts with SME started early 2013. We did some projects together in that year. When installing the first inverters at one of our customers, we also discovered the TAU software. It is incredibly easy to use and to understand, it is also very friendly for not experienced users. This was a big difference compared to the inverters that we used in the past. In a short time it is possible to set up a system with an inverter and a motor. When finetuning the performance of the system or vehicle, it is easy to make changes in the parameters, make a datalog, or look at the real-time data where all info are “live” on the screen of your PC.
SME’s and ALPATEK’s highly specialized engineers and technicians are dedicated to the development of new projects and to the technical support. They are constantly evolving and exchanging information to meet the needs of the customers and the highest industrial quality, reliability and safety standards.

For this reason, Alpatek hires 2 new members in the engineering and service team: mr. Mike Tolnaj and Dirk van Randwijk. Mike is an Electronic Engineer and has officially joined the company in August and he is in charge of handling SME technical support and assistance at Alpatek. We are sure that he will be very successful in co-working with SME application engineers and in supporting customers locally and in their language to meet their needs. Dirk is responsible for the SME service-department and he will start 01-01-2017.
“When SME started to set up a dealer network in Europe,we were happily surprised to be offered the chance to become an authorized dealer for the BENELUX. So, it happened!
