We work out body- and process-specific solutions for our customers in our own laboratory. For more than 60 years now, the HÄNDLE laboratory has enjoyed an especially good reputation for near-practice research.
The experience drawn from that work provides the know-how we need for on-target planning and implementation of new production facilities and for ensuring the optimal operation of existing plant and equipment. Our test spectrum covers a wide range of conventional and special ceramic products. Over the past few years, we have devised special tests for simulating the work of preparation and extrusion machines on a laboratory scale. These tests allow dependable practical implementation of laboratory findings to give our customers optimally engineered, energy-efficient production processes.
For example, HÄNDLE now uses a modernized and optimized Extruder Simulation Model (ESM) that shortens the test duration from four or five workdays to a single workday while still yielding well-founded, customer-specific, optimized process parameters for each machine tested.
At the HÄNDLE pilot plant, our customers have access to semi-industrial ways & means of production.
