Keeping up to speed – whatever the pace
Materials researchers apparently never sleep. New materials, composites or surface finishes are launched on the market almost on a weekly basis. No wonder – each technology needs specific precursors; each application requires particular materials.
Flexibly as on the first day
For SMB-DAVID, that means we have got to develop, produce and set up machines, systems and processes for processing almost every conceivable material and material composition (and very often ones that we never conceived of before).
Actually it is an exciting task to switch continuously between expanded and extruded polystyrene, polyurethanes, polyethylene and PET foams, glass wool and rock wool, wood materials or sandwich panels made of all kinds of surface and core materials. It is probably this flexibility that keeps us as fresh as we were on our first day, even so many years down the line.
