KRAHN Ceramics New on the Market: Realize your Vision
At formnext 2019 in Frankfurt am Main, the newly formed KRAHN Ceramics GmbH presented itself for the first time to a wide international public. The company based in Hamburg sees itself as a project partner for the processing of ceramic and metal powders. Through all process stages, KRAHN Ceramics supports its customers, from the raw material to the finished component. The portfolio comprises products and services like powders and binders, preparation and shaping processes, debinding and sintering as well as surface finishing. KRAHN Ceramics is part of the KRAHN Chemie Group, which for realization of this novel business idea has, amongst other things, brought together two already well-known names: first the internal ceramics division of KRAHN Chemie GmbH, which has been established for thirty years, and second eMBe Products and Service GmbH, a specialist for the formulation of feedstocks for thermoplastic processing (pressing, extrusion, injection moulding) of ceramic and metal powders, which was acquired in May 2019. At formnext, Ceramic Applications met with Dr Stefan Stolz (StS), Managing Director of KRAHN Ceramics, and spoke with him about the need for a holistic project partner, hurdles hindering the launch of products on the industrial market and customer feedback at the trade fair.
