How the Glatt Group implements contract manufacturing with expertise and innovative solutions. There are many reasons for outsourcing production – minimizing one’s own risks or a lack of expertise in alternative technologies are just two of them. But what to look for when looking for a contract manufacturing partner?
New services, capacities, employees: plant engineering expert Glatt Ingenieurtechnik marks its 30th anniversary with an investment in the future of its headquarters
From vitamins in animal feed and enzymes in detergents to powder materials for high-performance batteries, Glatt, the Germany-based plant manufacturer and process expert, is working on all of these in close cooperation with renowned research companies. In spring 2021, Glatt will expand its technology center in Weimar for the third time in twelve years.
For decades, large companies have outsourced production capabilities, thus driving globalisation –but also contributing to the decline of domestic industries. Digitalization, however, means it makes sense for more and more well-known global players to relocate production back to Europe. Contract manufacturing, for example, gives an idea of where this journey can take us.
Fully automated processes require reliable process data. These are determined with methods of statistical experimental design and the application of artificial neural networks. The presented case study has shown the potential as well as the general feasibility of a model-based control of a fluidized bed spray agglomeration process. In addition to the actual control task, the systematic approach allows a deeper insight into details of concrete industrial granulation processes. (article in German language)
