The world’s most highly regarded technology center for the handling of bulk material in the plastics, chemical, rubber and tire industries is located at our Friedrichshafen site.


Our Friedrichshafen bulk material technology center is equipped with all components and systems that are relevant from a process technology point of view. Our customers expect us to engage closely with their products – after all, only by having outstanding product knowledge can we produce reliable, process-optimized, energy efficient, cost-optimized systems.

Being able to perform direct testing at an industrial scale means there is no chance of any nasty surprises during the scaling-up process; special equipment configurations are also no problem for us. Our experts will perform a precise results analysis to ensure you have a solid foundation on which to base any decision to invest.

Two large test systems for pellets, powder and additives form the core of the technology center, and are where we undertake direct testing on an industrial scale. We calculate the relevant design parameters and create detailed test reports, forming a basis for the design of our customers’ plants. Friedrichshafen is also home to one of the world’s largest bulk material libraries: A repository of our experts’ many decades of accrued knowledge in the handling of bulk material."
