Vapormatt is taking wet blasting into the North Asian market with the help of Japanese distributor A.K. Techno. The partnership will enable local businesses to discover equipment that will clean, degrease, descale, etch or satin polish all wire, cable and strip products with an extremely consistent and uniform surface finish. The move is part of Vapormatt’s aim to increase their presence in Asia which has also seen a permanent position created in Thailand.
A.K. Techno was founded in 2001 and has since established itself as a specialist provider of wire production machinery and equipment. The partnership will at first see A.K. Techno distribute the Vapormatt Profelis, the in-line wet blasting, cleaning and drying system that offers exceptionally high quality results with all wire, cable and strip products.
“The interest in Vapormatt from Japan has been fantastic, and that is absolutely down to A.K. Techno”, says David Clements, Sales Engineer for Vapormatt. “A.K. Techno has been very active in visiting some of the major manufacturers in the country to demonstrate what wet blasting can achieve, and because of this we have received a lot of interest from a number of potential customers. We’re looking forward to a fantastic partnership with A.K. Techno and hope together we can meet the need for high quality wire preparation in the Japanese manufacturing industry.”
