On the back of excellent sales performance throughout 2011, the Productronica exhibition was an outstanding success for Purex International and a great way to end the year.
Purex set out to launch new products and to showcase it's fume extraction technology at the show and were rewarded with new distributor agreements, machine sales and a great response by new and current customers. Many key distributors which were at the show themselves also exhibited Purex equipment on their stands.
Featured at the show was the new FumeSafe machine which actively removes solder fumes from hand soldering processes by using on tool extraction that does not cool the iron tips. The FumeSafe can cater for up to 15 soldering irons and uses high performance 4-stage filtration to remove solder fume from the air and return clean, purified air to the workplace. This means that it is no longer necessary to use vent to atmosphere extractors which need holes to be cut in the factory roof and walls.
Also at the show was the new 2tiP unit which works on the same principle as the FumeSafe and provides on tool extraction for up to two soldering irons, it is ideal for two people working on a bench.
Purex also exhibited their more powerful machines such as the 1500i which can extract fumes from wave and reflow ovens as well as multiple extraction arms.
Jon Young, Sales & Marketing Manager for Purex, commented: "If anyone would have told me before the show that we would sign agreements with a lot of excellent new distributors, meet countless end users seeking fume extraction solutions, have requests for trials with several major OEMs, sell machines off the stand and meet current customers from all over the world on each and every day of the show, well, I would have been sceptical to say the least! However Productronica delivered all this and more."
"We were overjoyed at how busy we were, all our visitors loved the stand and appreciated the advanced technology we demonstrated in our systems. I would be suprised if the show does not pay for itself 10 times over very shortly."
