Lödige Process Technology offers high-quality customised machines, systems and services for process technology applications in the fields of mixing, granulating, coating, drying, reaction and related processes.
Lödige has a broadly diversified international customer base, consisting of companies from the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, as well as building materials and plastics, chemistry, metallurgy, cellulose, starch, minerals/ores and the environment.
More than 500 patents and over 35,000 machines and systems attest to Lödige’s experience with customer-oriented system solutions.
Solution and service provider for all processes
Lödige’s portfolio includes mixers, coaters, granulators, dryers, reactor systems, Ploughshare® Mixers, mixing technology, processing technology, mixing and fluidisation processes, mixed products and processing systems.
Our customers appreciate the high quality of the mixed products, together with the speed and efficiency of the machines. In addition, mixers can be individually tailored to the special requirements of the respective industries.
As a solution and service provider for all processes, Lödige delivers sophisticated operational sub-systems, and adapts them to the customer-specific processes and needs.
It goes without saying that as a one-stop solution provider, the company also offers turnkey installations. Lödige assumes all work stages from set-up to installation and commissioning of the turnkey solution.
In addition to focusing on core industries, proximity to the customer is for Lödige the key to sustainable corporate development. In addition to the individual application-specific design of each machine, this calls for reliable customer service by experienced engineers, ranging from the installation, subsequent upgrades and modernisation to the dismantling and disposal. This, of course, includes emergency support in the unlikely case of a breakdown.
Processing know-how for the food industry
Lödige systems offer the required mixing and process precision for ideal process design in a wide production range. Customers include well-known food industry brands.
The company’s systems and solution concepts are used worldwide, based on decades of practical experience in the design and construction of mixers and treatment systems for food producers. Lödige’s machine engineering solutions guarantee ‘hygienic design’ and implement extensive cleaning systems.
Lödige machines are built according to current international regulations for food-safe hygienic design, and are perfectly geared to your process. Our range of services is supplemented by broad after-sales support.
Process engineering solutions for food processing
Based on numerous process engineering options, Lödige systems can be designed and used for many products and production steps. For instance, in addition to the conventional mixing step, the additional process steps that are usually required by the food industry can be combined in one Lödige system.
This can make work-intensive pre-mixing, for example, unnecessary. Additionally, the Lödige test centre provides various solutions for experiments in process development and achieving a reliable scale-up to full production machines.
All systems listed below are available for production scale and in sizes suitable for laboratory work:
- Discontinuous mixing and granulation in a horizontal Lödige system
- Continuous mixing and granulation in a horizontal system
- Discontinuous mixing and granulation in a vertical Lödige system
- Mixing and processing in a continuous ring-layer system
- Drying and mixing in a vacuum shovel dryer
