John Winter has been named the exclusive UK partner of German-based MK Industrievertretungen GmbH and will distribute its MK Density Index (DI) equipment to foundries across the UK, and offer a service and calibration facility.

The DI equipment allows foundries to measure the density index of aluminium melt to define, control and optimise the process of cleaning it, significantly reducing metallic and non-metallic impurities and hydrogen and oxides.

John Winter will also distribute the firm’s thermal analysis equipment, which provides foundries with the technology to monitor and improve the quality of aluminium melts through grain refinement and modification of the silicon, providing an important indication of the mechanical characteristics of the finished casting.

Adam Bennett, sales director at John Winter, said: “This is an exciting new venture for us and will give us yet another opportunity to add value to our offering for customers.

“MK Industrievertretungen’s equipment is incredibly innovative, so I’m looking forward to working closely with them to test their products in foundries across the country.”

Nicolas Knoche, managing director at MK Industrievertretungen GmbH, said: “John Winter has firmly established its presence as a global foundry supplier, so it’s a natural fit for us to work with them and use their knowledge of the UK foundry market as we continue our push into this territory.”
