Agreement To Cooperate Signed By Malvern Instruments And NETZSCH Grinding & Dispersing

Materials and biophysical characterization company Malvern Panalytical. (Malvern Panalytical, UK) and NETZSCH Grinding & Dispersing (headquartered in Selb, Germany), a worldwide manufacturer of industrial wet and dry grinding, mixing, dispersing and kneading equipment, have entered into a cooperative marketing agreement.

Both organizations serve a broad range of market sectors from pharmaceuticals, ceramics, nano-technology applications, food and surface coatings through to mining metals and minerals.

The global agreement, initially in place for three years, will harness the strength of each company’s world-leading brands and unique expertise in materials processing and materials characterization. Under the terms of the agreement NETZSCH will standardize on Malvern Panalytical’s particle sizing and characterization equipment, primarily the Mastersizer 3000 laser diffraction particle size analyzer. Customers and prospective customers of each company will gain access both to the extensive milling knowledge of the NETZSCH teams and to the particle sizing know-how of Malvern Panalytical. This combined approach supports the further development of solutions and services to meet increasingly specific individual customer needs.

Malvern Panalytical’s Managing Director, Paul Walker, said: “This cooperation between two well-established, global companies provides real opportunities for both of us to benefit from the collective expertise, experience and market understanding that underpins each business. Both organizations share a philosophy of offering the best solution tailored to the customer’s specific requirements, and indeed the development of new solutions for particle characterization in the milling process will be a focal point of the agreement. We will work together closely to help our customers optimize their milling processes and product quality and to extend the limits of the technology.”

Dimitrios Makrakis, Managing Director of the NETZSCH Grinding & Dispersing Business Unit, said: “Particle characterization is becoming more and more important for fine grinding down to the submicron or nanometer range because product properties so often depend directly on particle size. The correct and reproducible analysis of particle size is a prerequisite for process optimization and quality control. As Malvern Panalytical is a world leading manufacturer in particle and materials characterization we have the ideal partner to deliver the best overall solution for both grinding technology and particle characterization and clients of both companies will benefit from this partnership.”

Initially, Malvern Panalytical Mastersizer 3000 systems will be installed in NETZSCH demonstration and test laboratories in key territories around the world - Germany, USA, Brazil, China, Korea, India and Russia. All trials, demonstrations and toll-production carried out by NETZSCH on customers’ materials in NETZSCH facilities will be routinely tested using Malvern Panalytical instrumentation, with Malvern Panalytical’s applications experts in each territory available to support the understanding and interpretation of data, as required. Jointly organized seminars and other initiatives will be targeted at key market sectors to deliver valuable information and support to customers and potential customers of either or both companies.
