We serve a diverse range of customers.

Brabender has over 60 years of experience in bulk material handling in a wide range of industries. We have acquired extensive expertise in our core markets such as plastic, food and pharmaceutical. In addition, Brabender Technologie solutions have successfully been implemented in a variety of industries including animal feed, detergents, glass, and construction materials. If there is a continuous process that requires accuracy you can expect a Brabender feeder to be installed.

 

Food

Cereals

Cereals

Cereal manufacturers require high-capacity processes that can gently feed mixtures of different materials, such as cornflakes, oats, nuts, etc. Despite the high feed rates, all units are accurate, easy to clean, and meet stringent food industry standards.

Fruit gum

Fruit gum

Chewy snacks are manufactured from powders such as pigments, sugar and gelling agents. Even at high feed rates, all units are accurate, easy to clean, and meet stringent food industry standards. 

Spices and Seasonings

Spices and Seasonings

Modern spice mills not only process raw products and enhance them, but also manufacture their own blends. Brabender Technologie has experience with spices, in both filling and batch applications. 

Pet Food

Pet Food

Pet food is commonly extruded in a variety of shapes catering to many animals such as dogs, cats, mice, birds and fish. Brabender has many feeders that are ideal for this application.

Savoury snacks

Savory snacks

Savory snacks such as crisps, potato chips, puffs and onion rings are produced by extrusion. Brabender has many feeders that are ideally suited for this application. 

Chocolate

Chocolate

Every chocolate contains cocoa powder, cocoa butter and sugar. Depending on the recipe, they can also contain vanilla, milk fat, nuts, raisins, seasonings and more.  In manufacturing, it is important to feed the raw materials gently, and, of course, in compliance with all food regulations.

Plastics

Biopolymers

Biopolymers

The use of biopolymers is an emerging trend. New compositions and properties are continuously being developed. Many different processes are used in their production depending on the additives. The feeding of natural fibers is particularly sensitive, and Brabender Technologie has developed special solutions for dealing with these fibers.

 

Films

Films

Feeders play an essential role in production of film, as it is necessary to feed extruders that can produce films for packaging, windows or coatings. Typically, the material is from pellet stock, but can also be film edge trim or shredder scrap from recycling processes.

 

Cable Compounds

Cable Compounds

Flame-retardant cable-compounds (HFFR) are manufactured through extrusion and kneading processes. This requires precise feeding of fillers, additives and plasticizers

 

Masterbatch

Masterbatch

Brabender Technologie has the ideal feeders for pigmenting and reinforcing compounds. Pigments, polymers, fibers, and more must be fed during the manufacturing process.

Recycling

Recycling

The recycling of plastics has many challenging applications. The process includes shredding of moulded parts which produces a regrind that is very heterogeneous in shape and size when compared to virgin pellets. Brabender has a variety of feeder solutions for this difficult flowing regrind.

 

Engineering Plastics

Engineering Plastics

Engineering plastics, such as polyamids (PA), polycarbonates (PC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), PBT, POM, PS or ABS have high strength and durability, and are therefore very much in demand in agriculture or the automotive industry.

Chemicals

Battery Compounds

Battery Compounds

Whatever the cell type, the smallest unit of every lithium-ion cell consists of two electrodes and a separator, with the ion-conductive electrolyte between them. There are various methods and processes for manufacturing them. Brabender Technologie has feeding solutions that ensures dust control and explosion protection which are key safety considerations in battery production.

 

Detergent

Detergent

The production of detergents and cleaning agents requires a very high capacity plant and a variety of different additives. Brabender Technologie’s large volume feeders featuring tare-compensated frames, blade screws up to 250 millimeters in diameter and hopper sizes up to three cubic meters in conjunction with our jet filters are specifically designed for high production capacities and output rates.

 

Adhesives

Adhesives

Manufacturing of adhesives require that the liquids, granules and powders are fed with high accuracy. In particular, liquid ingredients such as resins, silanes and other fluids require custom feed solutions due to varying viscosities, temperatures and process conditions.

Powder Coating

Powder Coating

Powder Coatings are made from a mixture of powdered binders, additives, pigments and fillers. Our feeders are ideal for accurately metering into the mixing processes found in the manufacture of automotive paint and general metal coatings.

GI-Toners

Copier Toners

Toners are typically manufactured using a batch process. The process can be add-weigh or loss-in-weight both with a moving collection hopper depending on accuracy requirements, batch size and batch time. Batch ingredients often include, wax, resin, metal powders, and pigments. Brabender Technologie has successfully implemented feeder solutions in many toner applications worldwide.

Pharma

Wet-Granulation

Wet-Granulation

Wet granulation involves the mix of dry primary powders using a granulating fluid. The fluid contains a solvent which can be removed by drying. Brabender Technologie offers precision feeding for these applications.

Mixer

Mixer

Brabender Technologie feeders allow powders used in tablet production to be accurately fed before they are mixed and pressed into tablets. Often multiple feeders are used to precisely follow tablet formulations.

Tablet Press

Tablet Press

A tablet is more than compressed powder. It is made up of many ingredients, both active and non-active, often in different layers. These layers are often coated. For example, these coatings make a tablet easier to swallow or allow for a timed release of the active ingredient. Whatever the technology, it is absolutely essential to follow the formulation precisely, ensure a complete audit trail, adhere to the appropriate regulations and meet general manufacturing practices.

Other

Other

Toothpaste for example, contains many different ingredients, such as abrasives, foaming agents, flavoring, aromas, colorants, other additives and active ingredients for prevention of tooth decay. These ingredients are processed in mixers, which must be fed in precise amounts by loss-in-weight feeders.
