Turbex has been chosen as a distributor for Solukon Maschinenbau to expand their business activities in the UK and Ireland for additive manufacturing.
As the demand for automated and secure depowdering of metal laser-melted parts increases, Turbex has agreed to distribute Solukon depowdering systems across key additive manufacturing markets in the UK and Ireland.
The new partnership will help potential customers explore the Solukon Smart Powder Recuperation® technology and find the right depowdering solution for their application.
Of the new partnership, Michael Sattler, Global Sales Director responsible for the distributor network at Solukon, comments:
“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. Together with Turbex we will strengthen our market position as technical leader in automated industrial powder removal.”
John Huntingdon, Managing Director of Turbex, is 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.”
Founded in 2015 and located in Augsburg, Germany, Solukon Maschinenbau GmbH is a German high-quality supplier of powder removal and processing systems for metal and polymer additive manufacturing.
