Eurotab is a family owned SME leader in the powder compaction domain, i.e. a technology enabling cold agglomeration of powders without any binders, contrarily to the other agglomeration technologies. As a fully integrated technological provider, the company acts as both a technology developer (product, process, equipment) and a manufacturer of solutions (equipment, finished products). Whereas initially in the Home and Laundry Care tableting business (washing dishes machines tablets), Eurotab has pushed its powder compaction technology beyond its original limits in 2013 through innovative approaches and equipment design to yield tableting of industrial minerals in applying high compaction pressures at high speed. This approach has been successfully carried over on compaction of raw material, with the design of a prototype compaction equipment. This prototype has been used to validate the equipment some of the technology choices as well as to confirm the technical and economic viability of such a process.
