>> Our service before the service: The reason we can design our services on such an extremely innovative and highly individual basis is that we demonstrate in our Coperion test labs process tasks which may come up in the future.
Test Lab for Compounding & Extrusion and Materials Handling
Coperion offers test labs for the compounding & extrusion market in Stuttgart (D), in Pitman (USA) and in Nanjing (CN). For the materials handling market, a comprehensive test lab is available in Weingarten (D) for testing bulk materials handling characteristics.
These four test labs are the platform for advanced testing of any challenges of a production plant - developing the optimized screw configuration for compounding a new product formulation or the ideal method for for conveying bulk materials.
A total of 30 compounding systems around the world, as well as 50 conveying and elutriating systems, enable us to simulate any conditions ranging from laboratory-scale experiments to medium-scale production. The experiments serve as a reliable means of confirming previously computed production conditions.
Affiliated to our test labs are laboratories where our scientists have access to extensive analytical facilities for evaluating the test results timely.
