Freudenberg, Germany - The new tech centre at Harburg-Freudemberg Mixing Group headquarters in Freudenberg, Germany is set to be the most advanced of its type in the world, claimed chief executive Prof. Dr.-Inf Andreas Limper at the opening ceremony.

A key part of the equipment on offer is a small (BN20N) tangential mixer with quick-change rotors. This will allow a test to be run one day. Overnight, the rotors can be switched, so that customers can make a direct comparison of rotor performance.
The mixers on offer will all have extra-powerful drive systems, permitting the machines to process near-solid materials such as thermoplastics and ultra-stiff compounds. They will range from a 45-litre intermeshing line to two small, but ultra-powerful lab mixers.
