Our Engineering Resources & Technology Centre
in Bangalore, India, houses laboratories with a comprehensive range of test equipment and the capability to simulate production processes in a controlled environment. While these labs are used primarily in the process of developing solutions for our customers, they are also frequently used for the training of customers’ and our own personnel. Our labs are also made available to customers to carry out trials of their own, subject to availability: for instance, to test new materials or new process parameters.
