Business is to be intensified in the industries of battery manufacturing, for pharmaceutical applications and food. The steadily growing demand for continuous processes in industrial production will also be served jointly in the future. This is because growth is expected in various areas due to the global shift in manufacturing processes towards automation.

Gravimetric feeders are used to continuously feed various materials such as powders, granulates and liquids with high precision into the processes of the technical plastics, food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
