Additionally, we attain quality certificates that show perfectly the innovative capacity of IKA and how the process machines are constantly enhancing.

From laboratory to production

Depending on what your requirements are, IKA offers machines and plants from the size that fits perfectly into any laboratory, up to the industrial size of a two-storey building. While the difference in size is huge, the outcomes are still the same. Due to the elaborate design and identical geometries, the dispersing and mixing results are uniform. Therefore, you can easily transfer the processes that you have worked out in the laboratory to the manufacturing plant without any deviations.

The IKA Test Center

We work with you to optimise your current mixing tasks or to develop completely new solutions for the production of your products. The IKA Test Center allows us to simulate what will be put into effect later in your production process. We will help you determine the deciding parameters necessary to ensure the desired quality of the resulting product.

The IKA Test Center consists of a vast array of different machines and plants, measuring and analytical devices, and software. The pilot plant has influenced the concept and design of many of our machines and their tools.

Searching for a suitable machine for your application? At the IKA Test Center you can test out several mixing systems with a variety of tools. Our process engineers look forward to assisting and advising you during and after the experiments. This way an optimal solution for your specific mixing task can be determined.

You will be surprised at the results that can be achieved with IKA inline systems. Difficult mixing tasks that require multiple steps can be accomplished with a single pass through one system. Our employees’ experience, creativity and competence as well as a pleasant working environment add to your success.

Rental equipment

A genuine IKA production machine is not only supposed to provide outstanding functioning and quality, but it must also be suitable for your particular application and process. Because IKA machines cover such a broad spectrum of applications, we realize that each task requires a unique approach. We also realize the significant investment involved in purchasing production machines and plants.

IKA trial machines allow for you to preview your machine decision on-site with your specific application. We offer flexible terms for use of our trial equipment: a user-defined term of lease, extension of the rental period and assistance with operating the trial machines.

In the event that new questions arise during the experiment, our application support team will be glad to offer you advice.
