Volkmann GmbH is based in Soest in Westphalia and was founded in 1973 by Jürgen and Ingrid Volkmann as a consulting company for production automation. The company started in the early years with applications within vacuum technology.

Profile Description

Own ideas and developments such as the patented „Säuferbalken“® (combined vacuum stripping process for drying belt surfaces and for liquid recovery in mills) and the patented Multijector® (special construction form of a multi-stage ejector vacuum pump operated by compressed air) made the company a partner driven by ideas and application technologies for customers from widespread branches of industry.

Thilo Volkmann now heads the company since 1991 and is the second generation. Today, Volkmann is a specialist in the transport and handling of bulk materials. In particular, Volkmann offers customers from the Chemical, Food Processing and Pharmaceutical Industry class leading standards as well as individually planned and produced systems for the safe, hygienic and user-friendly handling of powders and bulk materials. Thanks to a professional and creative team, Volkmann consistently produces new and better solutions for itself and its customers which can be manufactured with the company’s modern machinery and lean manufacturing principles Today, Volkmann employs nearly 100 employees and operates subsidiaries in Great Britain, France and the USA.

PowTReX in use at Materials Solutions a Siemens Business (GB)

The system has a high material throughput of up to 500 kg / h for stainless steel and up to 300 kg / h for aluminum powder in a very small footprint.

Optionally the sieved powder can be recover automatically back into the 3D printing process by vacuum conveyor technology.

The explosion-proof system with its integrated HEPA filter ensures a safe and clean working atmosphere.

Also available as closed-loop / inert system.
The system works with both, normal atmospheric air and inert gas. If inert gas delivery is required or desired for product protection, the PowTReXi system will run in a “closed loop” mode. The inert gas is kept in the system cycle and will be reused, not consumed. Additional costs for large amounts of inert gas are thus avoided.
