Solukon, Augsburg, Germany, has announced it is expanding its global sales network with a move into the Swiss Additive Manufacturing market through cooperation with Urma AG, Rupperswil, Switzerland.

Solukon machines remove powder residue from complex metal additively manufactured parts entirely automatically through programmable two-axis rotation and adjustable vibration. Solukon’s Smart Powder Recuperation Technology (SPR) includes features such as the SPR Pathfinder depowdering software and the Digital-Factory-Tool, a sensor and interface kit for process monitoring and automation integration.

Together with URMA, Solukon hopes to 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,” stated 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 added, “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!”
