AB Universal, a distributor of AM solutions in Russia, already has experience and expertise with the XJet NanoParticle Jetting technology, having previously installed a Carmel 1400 AM System at its Moscow-based demo center.
Since installing the Carmel AM System, we’ve experienced the unique advantages of the technology and now we want to deliver those benefits to the wider Russian industry,” says Andrei Boyarintsev, AB Universal managing director.
Additive manufacturing in Russia grew 30 percent last year, according to analysts, says Avi Cohen, XJet vice president, healthcare and education. “It seems to be moving much faster than the average global rate of 21 percent we saw in 2017 and with that rate of change we want to work with a specialist such as ABU, who can provide high levels of service and support, knows the market and also has experienced the benefits of the technology through its work in its demo center.”
AB Universal joins Carfulan Group in XJet’s newly established distribution network. Carfulan distributes XJet AM systems in the UK and Ireland.
