Integrated Solutions for Ingredient Automation begin in our full-scale test laboratory.
The Shick test facility consists of a full-scale pneumatic conveying system featuring Shick's component designs and PLC system. It is monitored by a computerized data acquisition system, which provides real-time information about product at numerous locations throughout the system.
Successful testing is often the result of your engineers working in tandem with our test lab personnel. You are encouraged to visit our testing facility and participate in the testing of your materials and system design.
Customer Product Testing
The continued evolution of seemingly commonplace materials and the introduction of a myriad of new ingredients make the need for material testing more important than ever. For us, the test lab is our primary means of getting to know these new products--to determine whether they are conveyable, in what type of environment and with what combination of components. For you, the test lab is a confirmation that Shick's designs and equipment will perform as promised . . . before you spend a dime.
The test facility is a vital tool of the R&D department in developing and refining equipment designs. Here, prototypes are scrutinized to ensure that future Shick components continue to surpass the high standards already set.
