Blasting technology tailor-made

<font face="arial, geneva, helvetica" size="2">The expert of special solutions is proving, for over 5 years, that there is still a great potential of innovation in the sector of turbine-wheel shot blast machines. With high-performance turbines and an innovative filter technology which is easy to maintain and cost-saving, the company quickly has become known. Different from usual suppliers, AGTOS is not only focusing on a few machine types. „Our measurement is the customer’s requirement and the operating requirement.”, Antonius Heitmann says, Managing Director of AGTOS. No wonders that already now the variety of constructed machine types leaves (nearly) nothing to be desired.<br></font>

<font face="arial, geneva, helvetica" size="2">Not only the company has grown but also the customers requirements. Not only the pure blasting technology is requested. They request complete solutions which optimize and interlink manufacturing sequences. Transport and handling systems are completely integrated in these concepts. Thus, they recently completed the greatest project so far, a complete fettling shop. Including cooling section, fettling workplaces and, of course, blasting technology. Both a continuous hanger-type blast machine and the tumble shot blast machines are working reliably and efficiently.<br></font>

<font face="arial, geneva, helvetica" size="2">Since the company’s start-up, the AGTOS high-performance turbine 3.6 with rotary wheel diameters of 330 and 380 mm runs with great success both on own blast machines and on optimized machines from other manufacturers. The high-performance turbine 4.6 succeeded as a big version which can be build in several steps up to a diameter of 460 mm.<br></font>

<font face="arial, geneva, helvetica" size="2">Soon, a new turbine generation will be launched. In order to shorten the assembly time, the ease to maintain will be further improved. The constructing engineers from AGTOS have especially turned their attention to the allocation of abrasive. A new impeller allocates the abrasive more evenly to the blades. The wear will be reduced in the same way. This saves costs of material and maintenance.<br></font>

<font face="arial, geneva, helvetica" size="2">With well known customers in the automobile and steel industry as well as in the field of foundries, engineering and many other sectors, the company was able to grow continuously. Many jobs, partly high-qualified jobs, have been created at the locations in Konin (Poland) and Emsdetten (Germany). Thus, AGTOS increased its team to over 100 well-trained colleagues. Besides the enthusiasm for innovation in the field of new machines, two further pillars are supporting the positive development.<br></font>

<font face="arial, geneva, helvetica" size="2">Second-hand machines are taken over or bought up at the market. However, AGTOS is different from usual second-hand machine manufacturers. Also here the long-time know-how comes into play. Firstly, the elder machines are placed in storage. Later they will be modernized and adapted according to the customer’s requirements and conditions. The customer codetermines the reparation efforts. Thereby, also notably cost-efficient machines will be realized tailor-made.<br></font>

<font face="arial, geneva, helvetica" size="2">Spare- and wear parts as well as services also for Compressed Air and Turbine-Wheel Shot Blast Machines from other manufacturers are completing the program. The AGTOS’ technicians are familiar with many types of blast machines, they know their strength and weakness. Besides standard parts they are also offering favourable and optimized solutions. Many parts are in stock, tailor-made parts and pre-cut parts are made promptly. Thus, many customers have already achieved better or more economical results with the existing blasting technology.<br></font>
