The directory catalogs 32 pilot facilities in the U.S., Europe and Asia. There is a brief description of each facility’s process capability, size or throughput limits, and contact information.
“Product development for new business in engineered materials requires sample materials, and samples require small scale pilot production equipment as it is often too costly to utilize commercial equipment for such needs,” says INDA president Dave Rousse. “We expect this new document to be a living, growing listing for technical/research professionals and product developers.”
The directory is available on the INDA website (http://imisw.inda.org/pilotlines) or by contacting INDA. Being a first edition, edits and additions are welcome when sent to info@INDA.org.
