  • Bühler Group already a satisfied user of Celsimix for a quarter of a century

    Bühler Group already a satisfied user of Celsimix for a quarter of a century

    The Bühler Group from Switzerland has already been the biggest fan of our Celsimix for mixing a wide variety of difficult mixtures for more than 25 years. Bühler is a well-known system integrator that focusses primarily on mechanical and thermal process engineering. The company operates in over 140 countries and has more than 13 thousand employees. “The cooperation is very good and we want to build on this in the future”, says Herr Stöckel Purchasing Manager for the company’s Leingarten site.

    ‘The design we were looking for’
    Bühler came into contact with Van Beek when the company was looking for a way to mix nuts with a ‘binder’, for the production for example of nut bars or filled chocolate bars on behalf of a customer. “It did not feel so much for us like choosing a supplier, as cooperation. The engineers at Van Beek helped us think things through from the start and the result is the optimum technical solution and the design we were looking for”, explains Stöckel.

    Installation process straightforward
    The cooperation in recent years has been excellent, even where this involved the installation processes at our different customers. “That is always straightforward and the delivery time is never an issue. Exactly what you might expect from a system partner.”

    Delivery including extra requisites
    Van Beek has supplied the Celsimix since our cooperation began in 1993 with the necessary adjustments for over 30 different Bühler projects. The content of the models supplied varied from 700 to 3600 litres. “In almost all cases we also supplied dosing screws”, says Van Beek sales engineer Roel Kneepkens. “When the dosing screw or the Celsimix is on a platform an inclined screw conveyor is also necessary. In such cases we supplied this too.”

  • Faster delivery due to ATEX type approval

    From now on we can supply screw conveyors for an ATEX category 1 environment with reduced leadtimes. We have received an ATEX type approval from notified body TÜV-Rheinland for the majority of the machines that we make for category 1.

    Machines that are used in explosive environments must have ATEX approval. Previously we had to have each individual screw conveyor inspected by a TÜV inspector before it received an ATEX approval.

    Type approval
    “This is a time-consuming and expensive process”, says Eric de Jong, Manager of Operations at Van Beek. To make the lead time shorter and reduce the costs we started the process for a type approval. “This means an inspector no longer has to come and visit for the machines you build according to the specifications of the type approval.”

    History based experience
    This type approval is not issued automatically, says De Jong. “TÜV has been coming here for years. The inspectors have assessed hundreds of our machines for the different ATEX categories, which means we have what they call history based experience: we have proved over all this time that we meet the requirements. The inspectors have seen that our documentation is in order and they know the workmanship of our production staff.”

    Quality standardisation
    A second point that we had to demonstrate is that the machines are always produced in the same way and hence meet certain quality requirements. “This is in short what you describe in quality standard ISO 9001:2015, which Van Beek has already complied with for some years.”

    Test machine for TÜV
    Early last year we produced a test machine which TÜV was able to get to grips with, says De Jong. “This test machine was equipped with every possible extension that we want to include within the type approval.”
