Simco Industrial is a leading international provider of electrostatic solutions with the interest of pushing new product development and a continued dedication to application support. Ion Systems is a technology-driven firm with electrostatic and process monitoring solutions for high technology markets such as semiconductor, disk drive, and other electronic clean room manufacturing. Simco also acquired Ion Industrial, Ion Systems’ industrial applications unit specializing in electrostatic solutions for the converting, printing, packaging, plastic markets as well as electronic assembly and medical segments. Simco-Ion management says it has now integrated these two diversified product lines into a single, expanded worldwide solutions offering.
The company’s customer support team worldwide has also increased, states Jay Perry, Simco-Ion’s US industrial business unit manager. “This growth gives Simco-Ion an even greater opportunity to study electrostatic problems across even more applications.” Perry added, “This real-world insight gives us a significant advantage in developing highly successful solutions tailored to specific customers needs.”
According to Simco-Ion marketing manager Kim West, new product developments are also coming to fruition. “We’ll soon introduce a wireless communication capability allowing our static control system status data to be viewed by enabled devices such as remote PCs or smart phones.”
Simco-Ion celebrates 75 years of delivering static control solutions with international offices in Netherlands, Japan, Australia, Hong Kong, Brazil and China, and worldwide headquarters in Hatfield, PA.
