To expand their business activities in the UK and Ireland, Solukon Maschinenbau has selected Turbex to be their distributor in one of the key markets for Additive Manufacturing.
Based in Alton in Hampshire, Turbex has been delivering cleaning equipment for hundreds of UK businesses for nearly 40 years. The company provides third-party products to meet the needs of their customers in a range of industries, including Aerospace, Automotive, Medical or Energy.
As the demand for automated and secure depowdering of metal laser-melted parts continues to grow, Turbex has joined forces with Solukon Maschinenbau to distribute Solukon depowdering systems in Great Britain and Ireland and to help potential customers explore the Solukon Smart Powder Recuperation® technology.
Michael Sattler, Global Sales Director responsible for the distributor network at Solukon, points out: “Solukon is the pioneer of depowdering of metal laser powder bed fusion parts – which means removal of trapped powder and reclaiming it without contamination in a repeatable, certifiable way. It therefore seems logical to cooperate with a cleaning expert for one of our key markets, who is perfectly familiar with the business landscape in the region.”
He adds, “Together with Turbex we will strengthen our market position as technical leader in automated industrial powder removal.”
John Huntingdon, Managing Director of Turbex, is equally delighted by the partnership: “Solukon has undergone impressive development in recent years. Together we will raise postprocessing to a new level in our customer landscape.”
