Message from Keith Dolbear
2014 has arrived and so now is a good time to reflect on the old year. Most
of our markets bounced back faster than we expected from a grim end to
2012. This was sustained though the rest of the year and so 2013 ended up
being pretty good. The talk is now of a sustained recovery and so let's
hope that 2014 will be even better for all of us!
You might remember from previous newsletters that we were very busy in
Europe with tradeshows in 2013. It was good to meet some of you at these,
namely bCIndia, Bauma, Plantworx and DSEI. Although we did not exhibit at
Agritechnica in 2013, we took the opportunity to "walk" the show
and it was good to see the spread of our door hardware onto more of the
high powered tractors on display.
Some of you will know that I am active in the Construction
Equipment Association (CEA), which is the UK trade association for the
industry. One of my tasks, and pleasures, in the CEA is to be Chair of the CESAR
Scheme. CESAR is a secure method of permanently identifying a piece of
plant or equipment such that the ownership can then be checked 24/7 by the
police. At a recent meeting of the CESAR Management Committee, Barry Mudie,
the Liaison Manager of the Police Plant and Agricultural National
Intelligence Unit (PANIU), presented a report on the 5 year progress on
theft reduction for plant and agricultural equipment. I was amazed at how
much has been achieved with a focused approach to this major problem and
where the UK is clearly leading the way. As the report states, "The
Metropolitan Police Stolen Vehicle Unit working with Thatcham
has introduced security standards for construction and agricultural
machinery. The "One key fits all" syndrome is becoming a thing of
the past, with many major manufacturers fitting unique keys and immobiliser
technology as standard".
Let me take as an example the PANIU statistics for thefts of JCB products.
Barry goes on to say, "JCB have been fitting CESAR as standard since
November 2007 on all UK products. Unique key and immobiliser technology has
been phased in across most products, which attains the Thatcham 3* standard
on just about all products, where it is possible to do so. JCB "Live Link"
their own telematics system which is fitted to over 16,000 machines in the
UK". In the 12 months starting from October 2008 a total of 836 JCBs
were reported as stolen in the UK. In the 12 months starting from October
2012 the number of JCBs reported as stolen was down to 335. This is a
remarkable reduction but it is even more impressive to find that of these
335, only 67 were less than 5 years old. It is absolutely clear that these
initiatives are working as most of the vehicles stolen today are old and
not fitted with this technology!
TriMark is working with a number of OEMs to improve the security of
vehicles and our extensive range of electrical and electronic systems
complements our mechanical ranges of hardware. Why not see what else we can
do with you?

Latest e-ASK Innovations
TriMark has provided mechanical
and electronic access solutions for over 43 years and is well known as a
leader to the many industries we serve throughout the world. Our
comprehensive component and system integration allows for complete keyless
entry, security, and ignition control for varying levels of sophistication
for on or off-road vehicles, machines and other equipment.
TriMark's expertise in system integration has evolved into a system
category called Mechatronics, which combines mechanical and electrical
elements to compliment telematics and other data management. Not only is
this approach elegant and efficient, it lowers the combined cost for
products and simplifies installation mounting and wiring for the OEM
installation. Truly another example of smart design that solves problems
and reduces cost and enables increased functionality.
Operators of non-automotive vehicles not only expect similar security and
convenience features as their cars, but often, they have even higher
expectations for such costly and critical machines. In the USA alone,
according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) and National
Equipment Register (NER), the annual estimate of equipment theft is between
$300 million and $1 billion annually - with general consensus of $400 million
and growing. Furthermore, these figures are for the equipment only and do
not include the financial impact due to business interruption and other
damages. Certainly an ever increasing problem for construction equipment,
as thieves realize that automobiles have increased theft deterrents.
TriMark Security Solutions for Off-road Applications
There are 2 key areas of emphasis for Off-road security, namely securing
the access of cab and immobilizing the machine operations. The latter is
key initiative for increasing demands for USA and global owners and
managers of construction equipment.
TriMark's vision for the off-road industry includes satisfying
construction operator demands with emphasis on increased security,
functionality, and convenience. Included in TriMark's existing and
new portfolio of products are ruggedized keypads, wireless RF transmitter
systems and access components with integrated sensors and micro-motors to
complete the mechatronic interface for increased perimeter and system immobilization
With the integration of access and immobilization, TriMark provides
essential elements to meet this global trend for security. TriMark has
many proven systems for securing access by locking door systems, but new
developments to provide increased immobilization features allows for the
multiple subsystem control, such as ignition switch, starter, fuel pump,
and/or transmission. Furthermore, TriMark technology incorporates
SAE J1939 CAN communication for further immobilization via machine data
exchange. See below diagram.
As thieves target more construction equipment, not only are equipment
owners demanding more security to protect their investments, further law
enforcement and insurance industry experts are organizing incentives for
owners of machines. This is most prominent in the UK where these
organizations provide insurance discounts for equipment with access and
immobilization security. TriMark, with aforementioned core
technologies, is uniquely suited to address this increasing global problem
and to allow owners to realize these financial benefits.
TriMark Electronic Access ADVANTAGE:
and reliable systems for off-road applications

4/Stage IV Emissions Standards – Continuing Global Support from TriMark
It has been sometime since we discussed the US Tier 4/EU
Stage IV emissions standards and we thought it would be appropriate to
review TriMark's ongoing global support relative to hoods and
cooling packs. With our strategic UK and US locations, we are uniquely
qualified to provide support to literally all global OEM off-highway
As a long-time partner with most of the off-road OEM's who are working to
address these challenges, TriMark has been providing application
assistance, thus easing the burden on OEM engineer's time searching for the
right access solutions. We continue to demonstrate that we have the
experience and product selection for heavy applications to solve enclosure
latching and locking requirements, within budget and schedule.
Off Highway Challenges – Latching Solutions for Final Tier 4/Stage IV
More than just emissions standards, US Tier 4/EU Stage IV standards
translate into complete machine redesign, resulting in lengthened frames,
movement of counterweights, revised driveline components, managing airflow
and noise emissions, and forcing revisions to hood and access panels. The
timeline and budget for US Tier 4/EU Stage IV integration are pushing the
limits leaving engineers searching for every opportunity to provide
packaging solutions while trying to hold the line or reduce costs.
Some of the challenges faced by our global OEM partners involved
applications where multiple latches are needed to secure an access panel or
a slam latch will not work because of heavy door seals. Because TriMark's
latching and fastening solutions are designed to ensure rugged durability
in off-highway's demanding conditions, many times those solutions are
already at hand. Here are just several examples of TriMark latches
that are available to address specific challenges:
