Sintratec is strengthening its presence in Western Europe. Thanks to the new partnership with the industrial specialist Bender AM from the Netherlands, the Swiss manufacturer of compact SLS systems is now well represented in the Benelux region.
Bendertechniek B.V. is a company with more than 50 years of experience in the metal and plastics processing industry, specializing in the sales and service of turning, milling and grinding machines. In response to the rise of additive manufacturing and industrial 3D printing, the subsidiary Bender Additive Manufacturing B.V. was founded in 2014. The team around Sales Manager Henny ten Pas focuses on the distribution of 3D printers and related materials for the Dutch and Flemish manufacturing industry – and now also with Sintratec systems included in the portfolio.
Especially with the new Sintratec S2 solution, Bender AM complements its offer in the field of selective laser sintering, which was previously limited to large industrial grade machines in the upper price range: «With their first-class systems for small scale production, product development and prototyping, we consider Sintratec to be the missing link for the benefit of our clients in the Benelux region», emphasizes Henny ten Pas. For Sintratec AG, this partnership means a further foothold in the important Western European market and a resulting expansion of its global supplier and customer service network.
