New technology centre from Plantag Coatings GmbH

Innovation centre for coating processes and product development

Plantag Coatings GmbH in Detmold has opened its new technology centre. This marks a significant step for the company in driving forward the development of new products, coating processes and customised production processes and further expanding its technical capabilities.

The new technology centre is not only a place for testing and development, but also a space for collaboration and innovation in surface technology. It offers an ideal environment for developing and optimising innovative products together with customers from the furniture industry and trade crafts. The Technical University of East Westphalia-Lippe (TH OWL) also utilises the technical equipment of the Detmold-based lacquer manufacturer in an intensive cooperation. Over the past 15 years, Plantag has regularly hosted internships for the Wood Surface Technology course in the Bachelor and Master programmes. The new technology centre now offers even better conditions for this.

The technology centre is equipped with a large number of state-of-the-art machines and devices, including surface sanding machines, spray coating machines, filler and putty machines, roller coaters, various types of UV dryers, a paint booth for manual application, an ESH system and fusion UV dryers. Other facilities such as laboratory drying ovens, a test laboratory and woodworking machines complete the wide range of possibilities offered by the new technology centre.

The move from the old to the new premises took place in the last quarter of 2023 and the technology centre was put into operation in the first quarter of 2024. It is used by both the application technology field service and Plantag’s development laboratories. The proximity to the production facility ensures short distances and optimal communication between the departments. Customer visits are also welcome, whether for demonstrations or joint developments.

The new technology centre covers an area of 1000 square metres and therefore offers sufficient space for a wide range of applications and projects.

Plantag Coatings GmbH is looking forward to further strengthening its innovative power with the new technology centre and to shaping the future of the coating industry together with its customers.
