Our team of experts
We have formed R&D teams, each responsible for developing new products relating to each of our key technologies. Developing films and sheets calls for understanding how and for what purpose they are going to be used, as well as a knowledge of the resins and coating agents that go into making them. It also requires the creativity and ingenuity to find the right formulations and layer structure designs as well as optimal processing technologies. Experts focusing on our key technology areas are working to hone our R&D skills so we can respond to the exact needs of our customers more quickly than ever. Researchers working on different projects meet regularly to share insights and information on various fields of research.
We have the best and brightest focusing on R&D that is strengthening our technological foundation and as they weave together technologies from across the entire research spectrum to bring innovations to life.
Test production and evaluation in a mass production environment
When making a prototype at the development stage, we can conduct a production test using medium-sized processing machines. This allows us to conduct assessments and usability tests in an environment that authentically simulates an actual mass production facility. Standing behind it all is a full line of state-of-the-art equipment that ensures reliability.
