Our pilot plant in a nearby quarry makes research and teaching on industrial-scale machines possible!

The plant enables students to do a variety of practical examinations, e.g. crushing gap checks, throughput verifications, analyses of comminution products and the required machine work etc.

In addition, students can visit and inspect our active grit processing plant, where they can put their theoretical knowledge into practice right away!
