Wintersteiger Mercury: The highest end of service performance.
The Boot Pro in Ludlow has just purchased a fully automated, 2015 Wintersteiger Mercury ski/snowboard tuning machine made in Austria. Only one of 24 in the country, this machine is both a stone grinder and edger integrating the most advanced computer technology with state of the art mechanical components. It has the capability to custom tailor the base structure of a ski as well as set edge angles to minutely specific degrees. The edge finish from the Mercury is second to none.
The machine will be run by the shop’s highly skilled technicians who collectively have over seventy years of experience in ski tuning. They’re eager to show their customers the difference this new technology brings to their skiing enjoyment and the competitive advantage it represents to the ski racing community.
The arrival of The Mercury at The Boot Pro has just elevated ski tuning to world class levels right at the base of Okemo.
The Stone Module
Accurate structures up to the tip. With a stone width of 350 mm, all types of skis and snowboards can be processed, including fully rockered. The proven swivel mechanism ensures optimum finish up to the tip. Thanks to the new hovering position, the grinding stone is placed precisely in position. The range of structures is provided by the infinitely adjustable stone and dressing speed as well as the double-sided, multi-state diamond dresser system (adjustable in steps of 0.01 mm). On top of that, the dressing unit – tried and tested in races – ensures structures of highest precision.
The Disc Module
Sharpest edges thanks to Ceramic Disc Finish. The automated machines’ Ceramic Disc Finish for tuning side and base edges is exactly the same technology used by ski manufacturers and racing teams. The self-sharpening discs guarantee absolutely exact edge geometry, precise grinding angle,
the smoothest edge surfaces and consistent grinding quality over the entire length of the ski or snowboard. A further advantage: ski and snowboard
rental services can save a lot of money thanks to the longer service life through light and constant material removal. Perfect edges, even optically.
To ensure a well-balanced structure, the discs are positioned toward the edge when idle and started up only upon contact. The innovative hovering position of the discs provides top repeating accuracy for set-in point – and thus even more precision.
Ceramic Disc Finish means: Constant edge quality from the first to the last ski/snowboard!
Improved turning qualities = more fun and faster learning results
Better grip on hard slopes = increased safety Edges remain sharper for a longer period of time
Easier turning on the edge = CARVING
