Global provider of soldering, cleaning and coating solutions, Inventec Performance Chemicals has announced that it has acquired French ultrasonic atomization and sieving equipment specialist PUS (Pure Ultrasonic Systems), with the acquisition taking effect in April 2021. PUS is engaged in the production of both equipment (solder powder atomizers and sieving machines) and solder powders.
In acquiring PUS, the company says it saw an opportunity to create a synergy in the additive manufacturing industry.
“Inventec supplies the 3D market for high-tech applications, with its cleaning, particle elimination and finishing products, while PUS provides sieving, recycling and depowdering, to provide a circular economy solution for this fast-developing market,” the company said in a press release.
“Furthermore, the addition of PUS will strengthen Inventec’s know-how in metallurgy, for the development of solder pastes, with ultrafine powders and specialty alloys for the semicon industry. Adapting to an evolving industry, this acquisition allows Inventec to innovate and meet worldwide customers.”
