Three AGTOS drum-type blasting machines in an automated process
AGTOS was founded in 2001 in Emsdetten by employees with experience in this sector. More than 160 employees are now employed at the two locations. Concepts are developed and shot blasting machines designed in Emsdetten, the headquarters of the company. The manufacturing site is located in the Polish city of Konin, near Poznań. The constant focus on the requirements of the customers means that the company is regarded as a specialist in the design and manufacture of shot blasting equipment for roughing, cleaning, rust removal, descaling and hardening. This is why customers on all five continents work with shot blasting machines from AGTOS. In addition to new shot blasting machinery, AGTOS also offers used blasting systems. This is an advantage for customers who need a blasting machine at very short notice or only wish to use it temporarily. The abrasive used in shot blasting machines not only affects workpiece surfaces. The abrasive impact is also noticeable in the blasting machines themselves. This is why service (i.e. stocking and delivery) and the installation of spare and wear parts play an important role. Added to this are maintenance, repair and modernization work on machines from other manufacturers which are at all times realized by experienced skilled personnel.
