Flamac Responded to Customer Needs for Accelerated Development of Complex Formulations with Chemspeed’s Modular SWING Robotic Platforms in Conjunction with its Gravimetric Dispensing of Highly Viscous Materials

“Flamac’s unique, integrated high-throughput formulation platform results in a remarkable level of modularity and flexibility when compared to standalone modules”, says Johan Paul, general manager of Flamac. “Initially this integrated high-throughput formulation platform will be primarily used for our strategic collaboration with P&G.However, the platform is open to all of our customers and research partners.”

“Innovation via collaboration is at the heart of how we touch and improves lives of our consumers. The Connect + Develop capability with Flamac is a strategic collaboration with our Brussels Innovation Center. The excellent technical work of the joint team and collaboration with IWT enabled the rapid progress”, John Metselaar, Brussels Innovation R&D Site leader.

“We are proud to be part of Flamac’s high-throughput platform and to contribute to strategic collaborations such as with P&G with our flexible and modular robotic solutions. Chemspeed’s proprietary and innovation enabling overhead gravimetric dispensing of solids, liquids, viscous liquids, and waxes while processing is pivotal for virtually unrestricted formulation strategies, thus standardizing and accelerating the investigation of both the raw material and the process space.”, says Michael Schneider, Sr VP Business Development, Chemspeed Technologies AG.
