31.07.2017 Brabender opens new test centre

Brabender Technologie, Duisburg, Germany, is planning to commission its new technical centre in Duisburg in time for the FAKUMA plastics industry exhibition. CEO Horst Vohwinkel explained the benefits of the new test facilities: “This gives us entirely new opportunities, in terms of both the quantity and quality of the tests we conduct. To date we have suffered from space restrictions and have always only been able to model parts of the process. The new Technical Center will bring a radical change.”
The reason for this major change is the new feeder filling level and a 2t capacity overhead crane which can lift standard packaging such as bulk bags, daybins, drums and sacks. Overall there are four full test lines available but the new facility also provides space for smaller tests that do not require use of the filling level. In addition, there is a separate area with the hygienic conditions required for food and pharmaceutical applications.
Continuous processes are the most common test requested, but batching applications can also be tested on a large and small scale. “Batching is very interesting for high-precision applications,” Vohwinkel explained. The new facilities enable engineers to conduct precision feeding tests during all phases of the feeding process thereby eliminating risk.
