Lohmann Opens New Bonding Arena at its TEC-center

Published on 2016-12-21. Author : SpecialChem

On 350 square meters, a working environment has been created in which the development of applications for customized solutions can take place. Under the motto “Solution Providing in the Lohmann TEC-Center”, the Bonding Arena is part of a tour that makes Lohmann's value chain perceptible to customers and visitors.


Working Area for All Market-relevant Functions

The Bonding Arena meets a variety of requirements. Regardless whether application engineering, business development or market and product management, a working area has been created for all market-relevant functions, which can be utilized absolutely flexible. Design plays an important role in this case. The highest possible openness, combined with the latest and most modern technology ensures a working environment that is unrivaled. “We want to create an ideal infrastructure in order to be able to react to the market requirements, also in the future”, explains Head of Application Engineering Business Unit Technical Products EMEA, Peter Harendt, in respect to the aim of the Bonding Arena. “In addition, the whole facility is also a training center for internal employees as well as for external visitors”.

Possibilities in Bonding Arena


The possibilities in the Bonding Arena are indeed manifold. For instance, significantly more possibilities for the reactive systems (Superior Bonding Films) exist. These, as well as all other adhesive solutions from Lohmann, should be graspable in the truest sense of the word, so that it can be immediately tested which could be the right solution for the customer. This takes place on so-called workstations. Thereafter, a flexo simulation will be carried out under climatic conditions. Thus, for example, a pressure test can be deployed to determine whether the adhesive solutions can endure the heat of the summer in India. Another innovation is an application area where “mounting profile systems” are recessed into floors and walls that facilitate the quick assembly of application devices in order to carry out component tests, the so-called Smart-Tester.

The concept of "rapid prototyping" will allow the analysis and measurement with the 3D microscope, lamination and laser cutting.

Thus, the Smart Bonding Approach can also be implemented in the Bonding Arena. The above-mentioned new possibilities are the end of a long list of services that can be offered to the customers. An all-in customer support so to say. The workflow: product requirements, product selection, pretreatment, prototyping, assembling and component testing in the new Bonding Arena is also part of the new customer concept and fits ideally into the technology center as a real demonstration of the Lohmann value chain. “Our goal of becoming the solution provider in selected markets is demonstrated here live”, explains Peter Harendt, “in a modern atmosphere, a "landing area" has been created for application engineers from all over the world.”
