Cold Jet, the world market leader for dry ice cleaning and production system solutions, moved into its new technology center at Obere Industrie Strasse 1 in 54595 Weinsheim, Germany, on February 1, 2017. The new 640m² building is constructed on a space of 3000m². The building is designed for future expansion by the possibility of adding more modules. The new office in Weinsheim houses sales, service, training, marketing and administration for the regions of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, allowing for more synergy Individual inquiries and services can now be implemented faster and more flexibly. Extensive training opportunities will be possible in the new building, as well as presenting more equipment in the future, including the Combi 120H and a pelletizer 120H for dry ice production. The new sales and service branch is also conveniently located, near the highway A60.
“The move was necessary, as the old office no longer offered enough space due to the positive business development of Cold Jet GmbH,” said Dietmar Juchmes, General Manager of Cold Jet in Germany. “The new technology center of excellence offers much more space, and the conference and training rooms allow trainings and seminar activities to be organized directly onsite. We also now have additional capacity for future expansion.
In the new competence center, solutions for process optimization will be established together with customers and partners. The goal is to enable business partners to produce faster, more economically and produce better quality. In this way, the cooperation with the customer will be intensified.
“We are going to set up a demonstration room in the near future where customer samples can be tested and cleaned,” said Juchmes. “We also plan to implement an integrated system, the Combi 120H and a pelletizer 120H. This enables our customers to experience dry ice production and an automated dry ice cleaning system live, on site. In this way, the customer can experience how their production process can lead to further reduction in downtime, improved component quality and a faster ROI.”
The COMBI 120H is an automated cleaning and surface preparation solution that meets both the requirements of industrial companies for a continuous cleaning process and also minimizes consequential costs of machine/plant cleaning and maintenance. The COMBI 120H combines dry ice pellet production and dry ice blasting into one system, able to integrate with a robot. High-density dry ice pellets are produced on demand and are always available on site and in the exact quantity required. The pelletizer unit automatically adapts the production of dry ice pellets to the dry ice consumption, predefined on the blasting unit. The system can also be used to produce dry ice pellets for other applications. It is fitted with an extra pellet outlet from where pellets can be produced directly into an external dry ice container.
“Thanks to new premises, installations, products and services, we are now able to meet the requirements of our demanding global customers even more professionally,” said Juchmes. “I am delighted to further strengthen our experienced team and, together with them, explore these fantastic new possibilities. Highly qualified employees from the fields of plastics, foundry, tire, gas and service are now locally present to support our customer base and are committed to delivering the highest possible quality and craftsmanship.”
