DALLAS — Voltea, a company that offers electro-desalination to commercial laundry operations through its Membrane Capacitive Deionization (CapDI©) solution, has opened an advanced manufacturing, robotic production facility here, the company reports.
Voltea says it acquired an automated production robot for the purpose of manufacturing CapDI module stacks. The robot enables a faster, more efficient way of building the internal components of modules with improved quality and faster production throughput.
“Voltea’s global commercial growth has outpaced our ability to manufacture CapDI modules using traditional manual assembly methods. We acquired a custom-built robotic assembly asset, which increases our production capacity while also improving product quality,” says Voltea CEO L. Bryan Brister.
Due to commercial growth of CapDI technology in the North American market, Voltea says opening a U.S.-based facility was a crucial need for sales, service, and training purposes.
“The Dallas facility will expand the capabilities of the service team on the American continent, in addition to being a valuable resource for the local training and support of resellers,” says Josh Summers, Voltea’s global field services leader. “The technology demonstration and FAT of equipment for customers will be an important feature of this new facility as well.”
Carlos Camero, senior vice president for global business development, adds, “The pipeline of existing and potential customers in North America is growing fast, which demands that we expand our sales team in the region to support that commercial growth.”
