Automated Handling Solutions (AHS) and Advanced Material Processing (AMP), material handling and processing platform companies consisting of Spiroflow and Cablevey Conveyors from AHS, together with Kason Corp. and Marion Process Solutions from AMP, have launched a new test facility in central Germany.

The site is designed to service the whole of Europe and will enable customers to fully benefit from these partnerships and their integrated product portfolios.

The 1,000-sq-m premises is conveniently located close to Frankfurt Airport and offers customers the opportunity to experience the full range of products from all four businesses, including Spiroflow's T6 bulk bag discharger, T3 bulk bag discharger, 4-in. AMC conveyor, 3-in. AMC conveyor, a full range of flexible screw conveyors, low profile bulk bag filler, CTE filler, and Smart 4 bin; Cablevey's 6-in. conveyor with washdown clean in place; Kason Corp.’s M1 Centri-Sifter, multi deck sieve, 24-in.

The test center also includes a spare parts and service hub, in addition to a powder lab, where customer materials can be evaluated before conducting bulk testing. Here, material characteristics such as bulk density, moisture content, and angle of repose can be identified to determine material flowability. The site is equipped with full dust extraction.

"This new facility offers a comprehensive selection of our products to customers in Europe and beyond," said testing & facility manager, Emmanuel Ricohermoso III, Dr.-Ing. "For us, it's all about offering ease of access to our capabilities and expertise, as well as the opportunity to see how these technologies can be used to optimize material handling and processing systems.”

Being centrally located means that we are well-placed to offer local sales and service support and assist with general customer enquiries.”
