Krahn Chemie GmbH has acquired eMBe Products & Service GmbH, one of the leading additive manufacturers for the ceramics and powder metal industry in Europe, taking effect on May 1, 2019.
The to date owner-operated eMBe Products & Service company was founded in 2007 and produces binder systems for the thermoplastic shaping of sinterable powder materials (ceramic and metallurgic). In addition to this, individualized product solutions are being developed along the value-creation chain in a technical center together with customers. It is also possible to produce these on location in small quantities. The products from eMBe are known on the market under the trade names Embemould® and Embelube®.
“The acquisition of eMBe is closely linked with our strategy of supporting customers in a targeted fashion in all stages of their production processes, from the raw material to the end product. Krahn has been active in technical ceramics for more than 25 years now and has made a special contribution to the development of this market in the dental field. We are now going a step further and bundling our competence with the technical know-how of eMBe in order to be able to address the wishes of customers even more individually and also convince companies that don’t yet use ceramics of the advantages of this material. This is because ceramics are and remain materials with a future, the application portfolio of which is still far from being exhausted,” says Axel Sebbesse, Managing Director of Krahn Chemie GmbH.
