Leading test laboratory and innovation centre, Impact Solutions, have recently invested in further development with a new package comprising a Fontijne Presses LabEcon 600 Proview that included commissioning and training by Intelicare.
An Innovative Press for an Innovative Company
For over 20 years, Impact Solutions have worked with their clients on materials and products testing at their UKAS and ISO 17025 accredited test laboratory in Livingston, UK. Impact Solutions needed a press to produce a plaque from various polymers of various sizes. These plaques are then used for a range of physical and mechanical testing. These tests determine material performance which is important when comparing materials or when creating material data sheets.
“The press allows us to meet the change of the requirements of international standards with more efficiency. The plaques are created with more precision and accuracy due to the digital management and control panel.
It has been a great collaboration between Intelicare and Fontijne. We are already reaping the rewards.” – Gregg Falconer, Operations Manager at Impact Solutions
Fontijne Presses is a specialised manufacturer of laboratory platen presses, and in 2007 they appointed Intelicare to bring their world-renowned technology to the UK and Ireland. Fontijne’s critically acclaimed LabEcon series is known for its accurate and consistent pressing quality, and is therefore widely chosen as sample preparation press for quality control and R&D.
