Materials and biophysical characterization company Malvern Instruments and NETZSCH Grinding & Dispersing, a manufacturer of industrial wet and dry grinding, mixing, dispersing and kneading equipment, have entered into a cooperative marketing agreement.
The three-year agreement will bring together the strength of each company’s brands and expertise in materials processing and materials characterization. Under the terms of the agreement, NETZSCH will standardize Malvern’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 to the milling knowledge of the NETZSCH teams and the particle sizing expertise of Malvern Instruments. This combined approach supports the further development of solutions and services to meet increasingly specific individual customer needs.
Initially, Malvern Mastersizer 3000 systems will be installed in NETZSCH demonstration and test laboratories in Germany, the U.S., 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 instrumentation, with Malvern’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 information and support to customers and potential customers of either or both companies.
