Technology Centre

Creating solutions together.

Our engineers and technicians relentlessly strive to craft the best solution for our customers. No matter the task or challenge you have in store for us, we will work together with you at the Redlham pilot plant to develop ideal solutions that go above and beyond the latest industry standards.

SML supports you to realise your ideas and test them sufficiently.

The production of customer samples, the common development of new products and joint test series plays a key role in SML’s partnership with its customers. Joint R&D activities facilitate the mutual understanding, and through it, the anticipative fulfilment of customer wishes. Not least, the findings generated together are having a direct impact on the further development of new machinery and technology at SML.

In 2021, the five pilot lines in SML’s Technology Centre always operated near capacity. From Q3/2022 on, new state-of-the art machinery can be visited at SML’s headquarters in full operation.
