Infrastructure & Facilities
Henkel has opened its new Technical Center in Bangalore. Equipped to provide customer immense value, the Technical Center carries out the following customer-oriented activities:
Product Testing and Evaluation:
The Henkel Technical Centre features mini application/process plants like Vacuum Impregnation Plants and Pre-Applied Center to demonstrate these processes to the customers. It also features the latest conditioning & testing facilities to evaluate the performance of LOCTITE branded products under expected field conditions. The key benefit to the end-users will be that they will be in a position to simulate a trial and assess the performance of the assembly made using LOCTITE adhesives before making the actual investment.
Equipment Application Clinic:
The Technical Center features LOCTITE standard dispensing / application equipment for demonstrations and trials. These dispensing equipments not only reduce adhesive/sealant wastage but also help in improving the productivity of the assembly line so customers can increase the savings.
Henkel conducts periodic technical training programs for its customers and engineers on specific LOCTITE chemistries in the fully equipped training center. Training programs are aimed at sharing the Henkel's experience in applications & adhesive technologies with the participants. The participants are equipped with the knowledge & tools to help them:
• Identify opportunities where engineering adhesives can create cost savings and improve operational reliability.
• Identify the right engineering adhesive for specific application requirements.
• Keep abreast of the innovations in the adhesive & assembly technology.
The programs are customized to meet the specific needs of the participants and are ideal for design, manufacturing and maintenance engineers.
The Technical Center is aimed to be a major milestone in helping increase customer awareness of capabilities of engineering adhesives.
