Test centers for product trials

Improve the quality and efficiency of your products

Included in our extensive service portfolio are our application testing centers built according to state-of-the-art standards. You decide when and where the product trial is to take place: either via video conference and live connection or on site on our premises.

Our experienced engineers put your applications to the litmus test: we determine the data needed to lay out production systems, configure the machines to match your requirements and assist you during product development.

The trials can be carried out either on a laboratory or production scale. Afterwards, we provide you with a detailed test report with the test results together with the ground end product.

Together with our experienced engineers, you can develop new products for your application!

Our range of services

Good products, good testing possibilities

  • Feasibility studies: the fundamental feasibility is tested in initial laboratory tests. A design test that is representative for the production process is then carried out in our application testing center.
  • Process optimisation: in the case of optimisations, e.g. optimising the end-product fineness and throughput of existing customer systems, our service division makes full use of our application testing center.
  • Scale-up: once the right system design has been defined, scale-up to the final production system is performed. Reliable and informative test data form the basis.

  • Development of new products: when it comes to development of completely new products, our testing center is available not only for the process development but also for the production of product samples to allow the user to test the market.
  • Special designs: cryogenic grinding (LIN required), potentially explosive products (inerting, pressure-shock-proof systems), abrasive products, hazardous goods, shredder-granulator combination, production process simulation (with pneumatic conveying, mixing and screening), clean-room design, particle size analysis, etc.

Digital supervision of product trials

The practicable method of classic testing execution – 100% online

Preliminary procedures

  • You define the peripheral conditions
  • You send us your material
  • Together, we coordinate the test date
  • You receive an access link to the video conference

Test execution

  • With your PC, you use this link on the day of the test to connect with our system
  • We then start the day together with a preliminary discussion per video conference
  • Alternatively, you can combine the on-site visit and the digital test support: one of your colleagues could take part directly in the trial in Augsburg / Leingarten, the rest of your team will follow the trial digitally and live via video connection - directly from home. You make the decisions.

Insights & highlights during the product trial

  • You can look directly onto the operating panel of the system
  • You can have a close look at the product samples via video transmission
  • Evaluations of the product analyses are made available by our laboratory
  • Be there live: our test engineer will connect you via camera. You get a direct view inside the system.

Costs & scope of performance

  • We send you the test reports together with the ground end product
  • You reduce the fee-based service and travel time to a minimum
  • At the touch of a button, we support you with our expertise – anywhere in the world, around the clock. That saves time, costs and resources which you can then make use of otherwise.
