The new regional service center, located in Centro Empresarial Colpa- tria, will serve as the hub for LogoJET sales and service throughout South America.

According to Radian, the partnership allows the laser company to offer a fume extractor from PAT Technology, specifically the Filtrabox, when quoting marking systems for cus- tomers. The extractors will not be offered on the Radian website. "We chose to partner with Filtrabox in particular due to the quality of the machine, ease of maintenance, and trusted relation- ship," says Radian Laser Systems CEO Tom Tamburrini. Radian recently tested the Filtrabox fume extractor with its new laser marking module at a trade show. Based on the results from those tests, the partnership was formed. "Radian Laser and PAT Technology have similar values; we both believe in deploying innovative solutions to meet the demands of our customers for today and for the future," says PAT Technology President Wayne Baird. "With any marking and engraving systems, a high-quality fume extractor is necessary to ensure the safety of the working environ- ment from fumes, smoke, and unpleasant odor," adds Tamburrini. "We want to make the experience easy for the customer to get a complete system so they can easily be up and running quickly knowing that all components work together seamlessly."

"It's not quite like walking out your back door, but it's nice to have a place for customers to come and see a wide range of our products in person," says Retz. "We can talk to them and get a better idea for what they want rather than communicating via email." Tobon
