Laboratory tests

Made to measure extrusion

For the cost-effective production of high-quality extruded products, it is essential to obtain accurate information on the behavior of the masses to be extruded.
By integrating the test laboratory into the certified quality management of ECT-KEMA, the foundation has been laid to provide customer-oriented and well-founded results. Our modern ECT-KEMA extrusion laboratory offers a variety of opportunities to conduct the necessary experiments to optimize extrusion processes and extrusion masses.

Take advantage of this potential to achieve optimal results. We offer you targeted and practice-oriented tests.

Further analyses
Further analyses in cooperation with renowned R&D institutes and universities

Your benefits

> Time saving
We are able to test the "extrudability" of your masses and check the extrudate according to your targets and boundary conditions. Our equipment and methodology enable us to simulate extrusion processes very flexibly and at short notice.
> Cost savings through customised extrusion
Parallel to the test and accompanying discussions with you as the customer, we develop a customised concept of an optimal extrusion line, based on your specifications and boundary conditions.
> Reduction of mass input‎‎
With the Capillar-Check and our laboratory extruder, we reduce the mass input for a filling volume from 0.4 litres - important for very expensive masses and those available in small quantities.
> Trust
Mutual trust is the basis of our cooperation as partners. It goes without saying that all examinations for our clients are handled discreetly.
We are ISO 9001 certified.
