As part of their global strategy to offer more local ultrasonic laboratory and engineering services, Herrmann Ultraschall has opened a new Tech-Center in Sweden at the building of Battenfeld Sverige AB in Halmstad.
It is the twelfth Tech-Center by Herrmann Ultraschall. Battenfeld is the ideal partner for the Scandinavian market as it is family-owned and represents well-known makers of injection molding and peripheral equipment. Ultrasonic welding will complement Battenfeld's existing portfolio nicely. Now customers in Scandinavia will have local access to an ultrasonic laboratory for feasibility test and process optimization consulting. Achim Rupp, area sales manager, and Michael Hiljemark foresee big potential: "So far customers in Sweden, Denmark and Norway are not spoiled in terms of having access to local industry services. That's where we can make a huge difference. The first event, Technology Days in March, with basic workshops on ultrasonic welding, were well received.
