The depowdering pioneer Solukon is now cooperating with the Swiss company URMA AG in the Swiss AM market. By cooperating with URMA, Solukon is further expanding their already expansive global sales network and is banking on a true industrial heavyweight in Switzerland.
URMA designs and manufactures precision tool systems that are used globally in drilling precise holes. For more than 60 years, the family-owned company, which has approximately 130 employees, has been active globally in a wide range of subsidiaries, OEM partnerships, and a wide sales network. In addition to tool manufacturing, URMA AG has entered the additive manufacturing sector in recent years.
A holistic approach to the AM process chain
URMA AG takes an integrative approach when advising their clients in the field of additive manufacturing, distributing high-quality equipment from their notable and industry-leading European partners through all stages of the process chain, from preprocessing and manufacturing through postprocessing. The partners include Solukon and EOS, among others.
Solukon as the exclusive partner for industrial depowdering
URMA addresses the topic area of automated depowdering of metal parts exclusively with Solukon. Since 2015, Solukon has been a pioneer and market leader for automated depowdering in additive manufacturing. Solukon systems remove powder residue from complex metal parts entirely automatically through programmable 2-axis rotation and adjustable vibration. Solukon’s unique Smart Powder Recuperation Technology SPR® makes this possible. With digital features like the SPR-Pathfinder depowdering software and the Digital-Factory-Tool, a sensor and interface kit for process monitoring and automation integration, Solukon systems meet even the highest demands for cleaning quality, process transparency, and digital integration.
Together with this new reseller, URMA, Solukon will further strengthen its already good market position in Switzerland.
“The Swiss AM market will continue to gain momentum in the coming years. We are happy to add another industry expert, URMA, to our global sales network,” says Michael Sattler, Global Sales Director at Solukon, who is responsible for the Augsburg-based machine manufacturer’s international sales activities.
Oliver Berner, Director Machines and member of URMA’s management team adds: “In recent years, URMA AG has greatly expanded its 3D printing abilities across the entire manufacturing chain. With Solukon, we have gained a strong partner in the area of postprocessing and a perfect addition to our portfolio of machines. We look forward to a successful cooperation!”
