Jona, Switzerland: – Dry granulation expert Gerteis is making a return to Germany’s high prestige POWTECH 2016 bulk solids event in Nuremberg to showcase its latest roller compaction solutions.
The Gerteis display at booth 478 in Hall 3A of the Nuremberg Exhibition Center will feature live demonstrations of its latest generation Mini Pactor® that is designed for both R&D and small scale continuous production applications, featuring constant ribbon measurement with no uncompacted fines.

Mini Pactor will be running constantly throughout the show with individual customer demonstrations available.
Michael Gerteis will lead the company’s team at POWTECH to conduct demonstrations and answer technical questions.
“In our 30th Anniversary year, we are very pleased to be making a return to POWTECH after ten years. This is an event which provides excellent contacts with our core buyer base in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, focusing on technical excellence in processing granulates and powders,” said Mr. Gerteis.
“This is probably the most important European event we will attend this year and gives us a great platform to share advanced application knowledge and support on granule properties with scientists and technical leaders looking for leading edge compaction technologies that allow easy scale up to continuous manufacturing while maintaining high containment,” Senior Sales Engineer Mr. Hanisch added.
The Gerteis display will also feature video presentations of its key granulation and dry granulation ranges, including the recently introduced Macro-Pactor® with new bespoke design, along with Polygran® and Mini Polygran® solutions that also include the new technical upgrade with HMI package and PLC-based redesign.
Gerteis Maschinen + Processengineering AG is a Swiss-based company that has rapidly established itself as a world leader in the field of premium roller compactors. The company’s products and services cover all aspects of dry granulation processes, with unparalleled experience in this field built up since the company was founded in 1986.
Gerteis manufactures a wide range of high quality containment roller compactors that are versatile enough to process a vast range of powders, even notoriously problematic ones at both laboratory and production scales. The company’s patented technologies are widely used by the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries.
Rapidly increasing demand recently forced the company to move from its original site in Jona on the shores of Lake Zurich to larger and purpose designed premises nearby, in a move completed at the end of 2013.
As well as manufacturing machinery, Gerteis offers complete solution packages that help customers increase productivity including support on identifying ideal formulations and in-house training courses on dry granulation processing. Gerteis constantly seeks to expand its knowledge on dry granulation, participating in numerous research collaborations with German universities.
