Lively demand for customer trials in SML's Technology Centre
SML is pleased about the high utilization of the pilot lines at the Technology Centre of its headquarters – especially by customers. In 2021, the industrial scale lines were used for customer trials on 127 days.
The production of customer samples, the common development of new products and joint test series plays a key role in SML’s partnership with its customers. Joint R&D activities facilitate the mutual understanding, and through it, the anticipative fulfilment of customer wishes. Not least, the findings generated together are having a direct impact on the further development of new machinery and technology at SML.
The five pilot lines in SML’s Technology Centre always operated near capacity in 2021: Beside customer trials, SML frequently used them for internal R&D efforts the like the testing of new machine components or the development of product updates. Additionally, they were utilized for demonstration purposes.
From the 3rd quarter 2022 onwards, new state-of-the art machinery can be visited at SML’s headquarters in full operation.
