Some new countries of Africa, Middle East and Asian regions will be added to the list of Walton fan importing counties very soon, he added.
High quality raw materials are being used in the production of various sorts of electrical fans at Walton Micro-Tech Corporation in Gazipur, he added.
Some unique features like lucrative design, reasonable prices, energy efficient, swift after sales services are resulted in gaining huge popularity among the customers, he noted.
According to Walton authorities, a modern and sophisticated fan manufacturing unit has been built in Walton Micro-Tech Corporation. They installed machineries of Germany, Japan and Taiwan. Design, quality control and product research and development department have been set up. An efficient workforce has been employed at the unit.
Walton is manufacturing ceiling fan, table fan, rechargeable fan, wall fan and pedestal fan in accordance with the International Electro-technical Commission (IEC) standard.
Rubel Ahmed, in-charge of Walton Fan RnD, said, MS Sheet or cast iron and plastic has been used in producing the blades and bodies of the ceiling fan. As a result, the air flow slowly changed the design angel of the fan’s blades.
In addition, both the air delivery rate and the life time of those fans have been reduced, he added.
Besides, motor of the low standard fans become hot very quickly and they are burnt due to the use of copper coated cable in the fan’s armature, he noted.
The use of aluminum in the blades and body of Walton ceiling fan is resulted in upholding the initial design of the fan’s blades and thus the fan delivers same air flow from its beginning to end. And, the life time of the fan is comparatively higher. For the first time in Bangladesh, Walton is applying inline copper varnishing process in the fan’s motor to ensure super quality. The use of 99.99 percent super enameled copper and H-class insulation in the fan’s armature have protected Walton fan from burning for high voltage. Speed of the Walton fan is being sustained due to the use of European standard boll-bearing and capacitor of Japanese brand.
