Solukon, an additive manufacturing depowdering company, is now cooperating with the Swiss company – URMA AG – with a focus on the Swiss AM market. By cooperating with URMA, Solukon is further expanding its already expansive global sales network through an industrial heavyweight in Switzerland.
URMA designs and manufactures precision tool systems that are used to drill precise holes. For more than 60 years, the family-owned company, which has approximately 130 employees, has been active, globally, through a wide range of subsidiaries, OEM partnerships, and sales networks.
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 pre-processing and manufacturing through to post-processing.
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 and automatically – through programmable two-axis rotation and adjustable vibration. Solukon relies on its Smart Powder Recuperation (SPR) technology to make 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 are able to meet the highest demands for cleaning quality, process transparency, and digital integration.
“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,” said Michael Sattler, Global Sales Director at Solukon, who is responsible for the Augsburg-based machine manufacturer’s international sales activities.
“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,” said Oliver Berner, Director of Machines and a member of URMA’s management team.
