The amount of interest received at the recent CIMT show in Beijing has helped to strengthen Vapormatt's position in the Chinese tooling markets.
This year Vapormatt shared a stand with one of the world’s leading coating companies, Ionbond, who have found the Vapormatt wet blast process to be an effective method for preparing tools for coating. Having spent a lot of time collaborating with customers Vapormatt have gained a strong understanding about what is needed in a market that is full of alternative processes. “Allowing existing and potential customers to see how the two processes complement each other are testament to the hard work carried out by our research and development department” comments Allan Parker, Vapormatt’s sales manager for Asia.
“By offering a process that not only creates extremely reactive and adhesive surfaces but also gives users greater control of their edge preparation has led to a huge increase in demand for our products” Allan continues. In the spotlight were Vapormatt’s larger systems which have been designed for high production runs and continuous throughput. For manufacturers of inserts the Tiger and Tiger+ systems were ever popular and the latest Lion system received great interest from manufacturers of round shank tools.
“The potential for growth in Asia is vast, there was a real sense of excitement about our products and this can be largely attributed to our world leading levels of control and repeatability of results” Allan concludes.
Vapormatt will next be exhibiting at the EMO show in September 2013 and have planned to bring more innovative developments to market.
