Sandvik test centre completes 100 tests in a year

Sandvik Coromant UK : 10 November, 2004  (Company News)
Sandvik Process Systems' largest test centre, based at its Industrial Processing headquarters in Fellbach, Germany, has completed its 100th test in just under 12 months.
The facility, seen by the company as the flagship of its global service network, is home to the full range of Sandvik steel belt-based processing systems, all of which are available for customers to trial using their own products. As well as the Fellbach centre, there are also test centres in the USA and Japan, and a fourth centre is scheduled to open in China in the next few months.

Each can be used for pilot and production scale feasibility studies, enabling Sandvik engineers to work together with a customer's own technical team to establish optimum process settings in terms of productivity and product quality for virtually any chemical, food, film or sheet casting process. Having benefited from significant investment, each facility also acts as a centre of excellence for the development and assessment of new systems and processes.

'Customer service has been the major focus of our recent investment program,' said a Sandvik spokesperson, 'and the value of this investment is reflected in the increasing use that is being made of the services provided by our test centres.'

'We're delighted that Fellbach has reached such a significant figure in the last 12 months; we know just how much our customers in the Americas and Asia value our USA and Japan centres respectively; and we are excited about the prospect of bringing the services of our Chinese centre on stream.'

The Fellbach centre carries a full range of Sandvik's steel belt processing systems, and there are single and/or double belt solutions for a whole range of continuous processes including:

- Granulation directly from melt into solid in the form of pastilles or flakes.
- Rotoform pastillation (9 different models) for the production of uniform and dust-free pastilles in the chemical and food industry, including subcooling products.
- Cooling, drying and freezing or any combination of these.
- Production of sheets and films, such as artificial marble, films, foils and membranes.
- Transport and storage of hot, sticky, abrasive or corrosive products.

For instance, where a test centre trial would be inconvenient or impossible, Sandvik has a full range of mobile units covering the same range of process technologies which can be shipped and installed at a customer's own premises, anywhere in the world.
