The Würth Additive Group, with its expertise and experience in metallic 3D printing combined with a strong sales and marketing team, is the perfect partner to distribute the Alpha 140 in the North American market.
The first contact between the two companies took place in September 2021 at the RAPID + TCT 2021 additive manufacturing trade show in Chicago. The interest was bilateral from the start – here the digital Kanban storage concept from Würth Additive, there the 3D metal printer from Kurtz Ersa. In November 2021, a Würth Additive delegation visited the Kurtz Ersa 3D Tec Center in Kreuzwertheim to see the Alpha 140 live in action. The first delivery to Würth Additive in Indianapolis was followed only a short time later by installation at a US customer in February 2022. An Alpha 140 wowed visitors to the Expo Manufactura in Monterrey, Mexico, at the Würth Additive booth – and likewise not long after at the "Design-2-Part" in Arlington, Texas. The Würth Additive team is already planning further trade fair appearances with the Alpha 140, including roadshows and sales events. There are also plans to expand the cooperation in other countries.
