Lohmann Announces Completion of its TEC Center

Published on 2016-10-28. Author : SpecialChem

Lohmann has announced that its TEC Center is now complete.The TEC Center project was officially launched in April 2014 with the groundbreaking ceremony. The main goal of this large-scale investment was to unite all the technical functions under one roof and to demonstrate the activities of the adhesive experts in a variety of ways. Emphasis was placed on an innovative and functional architecture, which reflects the activities of the "Bonding Engineers”. How well this has been implemented becomes particularly apparent in the entrance area of the new building. This corresponds to the individual layers of an adhesive tape, which protrude from the building like a fan and are illuminated in the Lohmann colors at night.

TEC Center: Center for Innovation

With the construction of the technology center, Lohmann not only strengthens its development and technology competence, but also increases its competitiveness and sustainably invests in the future. The location will be strengthened, jobs secured and a highly modern environment has been created for current and future employees. The TEC Center is thus a solid foundation for the successful implementation of the innovative ideas of Lohmann’s "Bonding Engineers". After all, the demand for innovative and sustainable solutions continues to rise. The combination of innovation competence and service is therefore the key factor in order to provide even better support to the customers. Lohmann\'s expertise in the manufacture and application of adhesive solutions is depicted with this new building. This includes product development with the new Product Design Lab, the pilot plant, the application technology (Application Design Lab), the process technology and the central test laboratory.

Structure of Pilot Plant

In the pilot plant, the location of small-scale adhesive production and coating, a new multifunctional coating line is situated: the High Performance Coating Line (HPCL). The HPCL is the heart of the TEC Center and is capable of coating all materials that can be processed from roll to roll with narrow web widths. In addition, it is suitable for pre-series production and, for very special requirements, the whole system can also be run under clean-room conditions. The new machine is 22 meters long, eight meters high and two meters wide. Worldwide, the plant leads the way in the industry. In the application technology sector, an even stronger focus is now placed on the customer. The application engineering laboratory (Application Design Lab) houses, for example, customer-specific and market segment oriented demonstration facilities.

One aspect that should not be neglected is the state-of-the-art office workplaces that have been created. The new working environments of the TEC Center focus on open and networked working. In concrete terms, this means that the open space concept allows everyone to work where he or she feels most comfortable. As a result, the team spirit can develop even further and open communication is encouraged. Short distances, more interexchange and a smooth workflow were established. In addition, for several months now the TEC Center has already been used as a representative reception and conference center for customers and visitors. For example, in-house trade fairs, symposia or conferences take place here. This will be further expanded in the future.
