Create the perfect process with consulting and system planning

Are you planning a new construction or do you have an idea for a new laboratory, product or process and need support for the industrial realisation? Then it is important to take a holistic approach to the entire process. Our Process Consulting experts are the right partners to have at your side for system planning. After all, we develop your entire process for bulk materials process engineering and consider every single production step along the way – from the delivery of raw materials to the packaging of the bulk materials.

The result? A solid foundation for decision-making based on the wealth of expertise offered by the Hosokawa Group and an investment at the outset that helps you make big savings throughout the process.

The perfect powder process

Developed for your specific needs

In a custom-fit powder process, many parts come together to form a large whole: from various tests and substance balances to cost analyses and decision matrices to process transfer to other applications, locations or manufacturers. Process Consulting works with you to develop your custom-fit powder process, which we will be happy to implement with you later.

Process Consulting - that's how it works

Transform your idea into an optimal investment

As the first step, we put your idea in concrete terms and define the task. To do this, we look at your idea holistically, taking into account the special properties of your bulk material or system. In a feasibility analysis, we analyse the current situation and your needs. This includes component or system tests, comparisons of different technologies and your time to market. On this basis of the findings, we draw up a specification document that sets out all the requirements for the process and the general conditions (e.g. ATEX or building). At the end of this step, you will receive a rough implementation concept and cost estimate. This defines the main components of your process and records them in a rough process flow diagram.

In the next step, we develop several solutions for your individual requirements. This includes tests to check technical feasibility, initial process flow diagrams and a cost analysis in terms of OPEX and CAPEX. At the end, you will receive various process proposals and an evaluation of these alternatives.

In the last step, we take a closer look at the different options so that you can make the best decision in the end. This includes risk analyses and decision matrixes, flow diagrams and a 3D visualisation with your main process components and building structures. Once this is finished, you will have found the process that best meets your requirements and a solid foundation for your further business plan. It is up to you whether you implement this process with a different manufacturer of your choice or once again rely on Hosokawa Alpine's know-how and experience.
