The Floatmatic was created by the Danish engineer and inventor Simon Russek, who has many years of experience within R&D work in a wide varity of businesses. The fields of expertice are within wind turbine manufactuing, pneumatics, machining, and industriel automation equipment to mention a few.
During his work he saw the need for a special joint, which could compensate for a misalignemt or off centering between a pneumatic cylinder and its attached part, but to his surprise none of the joints available on the market could solve these common issues. This awareness was the beginning of the Floatmatic, a floating joint which had the advantages the excisting joints on the market were missing.
The Danish company 3d plus launched Floatmatic on the Scandinavian market in the second half of 2020 and the Floatmatic imediatly received recognistion from mutiple actors within the pneumatic industry. Due to the big interest from the market Simon chose to have the design patented.
In January 2021 the German market followed along, with the partnership of a German distributer. The business is now adding direct sales which ensures lower cost, direct costumer feed back and fast delivery world wide.
