FORMAX

Faster and Better Investigation of the Raw Material and Process Space when facing such challenges as:

  • bans on commonly used additives/raw materials
  • the consequences of REACH regulations
  • the inability to comprehensively understand the composition and process of your formulations
  • the need to produce more formulations in less time
  • growing pressure for sourcing of sustainable raw materials
  • quality issues of production batches
  • looking for specific effects and performances
back


  • Decrease in cost per sample up to 90%.
  • Increase in productivity by a factor of 10 or more.
  • Up to 36 formulations per run.
  • Gravimetric dispensing (solids, powders, liquids, highly viscous materials, pastes, creams and waxes) into precision formulation vessels.
  • 4-Needle Head for volumetric liquid handling and sampling.
  • The balance moves to the destination, increasing speed and efficiency.
  • Balance resolution of 0.1 mg, or 0.01 mg.
  • A large dispensing range, from a few mg up to several grams.
  • Continuous real-time monitoring and control of all formulation parameters, including internal and jacket temperature, shear rate and viscosity, scraping speed, reflux and pH in an inert atmosphere, if desired.
  • Flexible adjustment of scraper positioning / orientation.
  • Choice of scraper material e.g. PTFE, PEEK.
  • Dispensed amount, mixing speed, temperature, time…, and other data are stored in a read only log file.
  • Automatic logging of all data, interfacing with common software packages (e.g. Excel, DoE software).
  • Intuitive experiment setup by drag and drop
  • Control and monitor each reactor individually.
  • Automatic logging of all data, interfacing with common software packages (e.g. Excel, DoE software).
