The Cimex line of equipment dates back to the early 1930’s when the three headed, counter planetary motion machine was originally commissioned by the Royal British Navy for use on the decks of their fleet.
The reason this machine exists was due to the pulling associated with single headed buffing equipment of the time. When at sea, specifically on the deck of a large military ship, keeping your footing is paramount lest you end up in the drink.
As such, the counter rotating motion was born. Our line of floor cleaning and resurfacing equipment still runs on the same principal employed some 80 years ago. The patented motion applies constant pressure to surfaces both flat and bumpy alike, all while maintaining it’s position. Turn the machine on and everything except the business end stays perfectly still.
You may never use your Cimex machine while sailing, but you can certainly enjoy the same applied ingenuity that saved countless sailors today.
