Spectroscope-based moisture measurement
APOS GmbH (‘APOS’) in Wedel and Fagus-GreCon Greten GmbH & Co. KG (‘Fagus-GreCon’) in Alfeld have agreed on strategic cooperation for the spectroscope-based measuring systems. Besides the collaboration for the market development, this cooperation also includes joint activities in terms of service and support.
By using Fagus-GreCon’s worldwide sales and service network, the continuous availability of the APOS systems can be even better guaranteed than hitherto. Common further product developments are also on the agenda. Heinrich Unland, Managing Director of APOS, is convinced to have found with Fagus-GreCon the perfect market and service partner for APOS solutions. “Our product portfolios perfectly fit together and we see a large common potential,” Unland says.
Spectroscope-based systems for the moisture measurement have established in the past years by adding new applications as the measurement of the pH value or the determination of the resin quantity throughout the overall process chain – from the acceptance of the raw material at the factory gate to the quality assurance for the finished board.
Thanks to cooperation with APOS, Fagus-GreCon extends its product range by the spectroscopy systems which APOS developed especially for the wood-based panel industry and the pulp & paper industry. “With this addition to our product portfolio, we are able to support our customers in their efforts for an optimisation of their production process in a better way than before. Our customers benefit from the expertise and technology know-how of both companies,” Dr. Jörg Hasener, Manager of Fagus-GreCon’s measuring technology division, comments.
