ASCO Sintering has opened new metal sintering sales and engineering office in South Africa to service African customers.

The company has appointed Carlo Coenraad as the African sales manager in its new office located in Cape Town, where he will be offering advanced powdered metal sintering solutions to ASCO clients and companies located throughout the African continent. Coenraad has over 25 years of experience in the precision tooling and engineering sectors in Africa, including the management of a sintering plant that produced custom parts for South African and European companies requiring high strength precision sintered components.

According to Coenraad, sintering suppliers throughout Africa have been unable to maintain the high six sigma quality and precision required in today’s sintered parts, and predicts that custom powdered metal parts produced by ASCO will offer faster production and substantial cost savings compared to CNC machining or MIM solutions.
