The ability to characterize and analyze surfaces and the contact between different materials provides a strategic advantage to Datwyler’s customers. From recipe development to advanced technologies, it is possible to start from scratch with new materials, combinations and processes and then to go into how to implement them into production. Existing parts can also be used for experiments to develop new coatings and processes independently. This means, for example, when a new bonding agent is required, now the fine-tuning of the bonding agent application can be done in parallel without stopping production – offering much more flexibility to customers.
The labs also enhance the ability to analyze and optimize the manufacturing process and the functionality of a component within a system in a situation that is as close to reality as possible.
