Member of the German group BÜFA, BÜFAtec Spain is a manufacturer of machinery for composites molding. It has been present in Brazil for slightly over three years through Dilutec, its official distributor – currently, there are over 20 machines in operation in the country.

“Brazil is experiencing a difficult scenario, but we understand it as a cycle, such as the one that recently took place in Europe. That is why, together with Dilutec, we are investing in the development of a larger inventory of spare parts and authorizing the local production of low-complexity components. We also expanded the structure used for technical assistance, since the repairs are done locally. Thus, we allow a greater reliability for the Brazilian companies who choose the equipment produced by BÜFAtec,” said Rafael Recio, director.

Optimistic about the country’s recovery, Recio does not rule out the possibility to soon expand the portfolio available to local molders. Among the options that are more likely to land here, he mentioned the HD/20 machine, which produces solid surface plates – a combination of resin and mineral filler used in residential and hospital applications, especially in kitchens and bathrooms.

“This equipment has been recently developed by BÜFAtec Spain. There are already more than twenty units in operation only in Spain, and the feedback we have received has been very positive, especially in terms of reliability and simplicity of the machine.” Another option that can be brought to Brazil is the epoxy resin injection machine – in this case, the main target is the wind energy market.

The partnership between Dilutec and BÜFAtec Spain comprises the distribution of lamination machines, gelcoat spraying machines, dosing units, mixers and an equipment capable of operating in three types of processes: manual lamination (roll), spray-up (pistol) and injection (RTM or casting).
