when people in the industry were asked whether the mixing equipment market was mature, the answer was like saying from a teenage child: "a little mature, but not really mature."

although this answer sounds a little confusing, it is a very accurate answer. Most of the hybrid equipment market is mature. There are many ways to design and manufacture mixers, but it is impossible for someone to find ways to reinvent a wheel and find something very new. Therefore, the manufacturers of mixing equipment did not stay on the success of the past; They are trying to make their products more effective, accurate and easy to use according to document No. 350

Gear Walpole, vice president of schwerdtel, pointed out that as paint manufacturers continue to develop new accessories, which plays an important role in the miniaturization of batteries, equipment manufacturers must also continue to innovate to keep up with the trend. He said, "new formula means that the equipment market always needs to take action. The use of small batches and new materials (such as resin) means that equipment manufacturers can never stop taking steps, so I don't think this market is fully mature."

Kerstin Grosse, sales manager of grinding dispersion Department of Buhler, Inc., pointed out that although equipment manufacturers must continue to update their products to meet the needs of new materials, "there have been a lot of innovations in the dispersion process."

Ms. Grosse believes that many new products are the result of updating existing equipment to keep up with new formulas and simplifying and promoting the mixing process. She said, "Buhler is developing ways to reduce the need for grinding after mixing. A good pre

mixing process can eliminate the need for further grinding after mixing."

Randy cleaver, the project engineering manager of Netzsch company, said that although little can be done to change the actual parts and processes in the mixing process, there is still room for innovation. He said, "just like the main parts of cars, the basic components and design of mixers have not changed much in the past 50 years, and will never change a lot for most components. However, the use process of mixers for different purposes still belongs to the scope of technological progress."

an innovative area of the hybrid equipment market is computerization and automation. Mr Walpole said, "The computer programming and automatic adjustment of recipe memory and storage are very important. Most of the things manufactured today contain some computer components more or less, but it also depends on the need. Now there are many businessmen who do not need computer technology. Grosse also believes that computerization and automation are very important in the new hybrid design, and their existence depends on the need." she said. " When manufacturers move towards automated production, temperature control and delayed release add software to enable users to make a complete plan for the mixing process. However, experience shows that manually operated mixers can provide a good enough service for the vast majority of customers. Now there are so many different colors and batches, and small batches often make it difficult for the coating industry to achieve self

she added that price sensitivity is usually another problem, often making customers choose manually operated equipment

issues such as price sensitivity and the need for automation are the main indicators of listening to customer needs. Since many

manufacturers do not often buy new mixers, maintaining a solid relationship with customers is the key. To succeed in the hybrid equipment market, manufacturers must provide excellent services and provide products that customers need. Grosse

said, "we try to meet customers' needs by listening carefully. We try to know as much as possible what customers want to achieve in the hybrid

, so as to recommend devices suitable for those needs."

many mixing equipment manufacturers provide trial sites except for those that affect jaw misalignment, where customers can conduct "trial operations" to find the equipment that best suits their needs. Grosse said, "customers really like the ability of equipment manufacturers to give them a trial, because

provides more security for it when customers make decisions."

so what factors can affect the decision-making process? Walpo's original material performance has also improved. Mr. Pentium Le believes that customers pay more attention to several things in today's market. He said, "it includes reducing inventory and achieving timely production. The word I hear everywhere is' thin production ', which means that you can produce only when you need it, produce now and deliver goods yesterday. Everyone hopes to complete their homework today; this is a major trend." He also stressed the need to maintain a low inventory level, because the price of raw materials continues to rise

another need of customers stems from the growing importance of research and development. Buhler has developed some laboratory level blenders to meet this challenge. Grosse said, "we have developed experimental mixers for some of our real needs. Customers need high-quality and small-scale

equipment that can help them produce small batches of products. At the same time, they can be used in

laboratories and R & D work. These small mixers enable R & D chemists to simulate the quality and mixing effect of production level mixers."

it is wrong to say that there is nothing new in this extremely important market. As long as paint manufacturers

produce new products with new raw materials and ingredients, mixing equipment manufacturers must continue to adjust their products to meet the needs of paint manufacturers. Equipment suppliers are committed to thinning production, ease of use, promotion of subsequent grinding and dispersion processes, which proves that with the evolution of the paint market, the equipment used in paint production is also evolving
